(TRA = Tracy, JAM = James)

was the brainchild of Sylvia and Robert Cartwright who acquired their first show dog, a Rough Collie in 1977.

The kennel name, a unique blend of both children's names.

Dad passed in 1979, and mom continued his dream of producing quality show dogs.

In 1997 the first Beagle came on the scene thru the generosity of William and Allison Alexander

We've come a long way baby! We are dedicated to quality without compromise and with the support and encouragement of friends and mentors, the TraJam kennel name is now synonymous with quality around the world.

I hope my parents would be pleased!

In 2015 we had the opportunity to take part in the Breeder's Forum for Canadian Dog Fancier, you can read that interview HERE.

Dogs are my love but they are not my living.

A ground covering, compact hound that would be ale to follow the quarry over uneven, rugged terrain is my goal as a caretaker of the breed.

The TraJam Beagles reside in a village a pleasant drive from everywhere.  Visitors are welcome by appointment.

Feel free to contact me with questions or just to chat beagles



TraJam Beagles are exclusively fed Purina Pro Plan Savor (Shredded Chicken)
