Jan Swayze Curry had the good fortune to have been born into an avid dog show family. Longlesson was started in the late 40’s by her Grandmother Margaret Van Hook and Her two daughter’s Judy and Peggy. They bred standard smooth dachshunds starting in the 1940’s and then they added Afghan hounds in the early 1950’s. Longlesson has bred 50+ afghan champions, many of which have also been field and obedience titled.

At 6 years old, Jan was given her first show dog, the Italian greyhound Ch Kirklea Longlesson Bel Canto. She helped pilot her to a top 10 IG in 1961. A few years later, Jan was given her first whippet to show, Ch Kirklea Flight Pattern.

Jan’s family became a part of the Atlanta Kennel club in the 1940’s which is where they met many that would be influential in the development of their breeding programs. Such as Cora Miller(Hound Hill), James Gray(Elysian) and Larry Shaw(Kirklea) which led them to Whippets which were added in 1968. With her parents Louis and Peggy Swayze, Husband Steve Curry and two children Grahm Swayze and Louis Pence, somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 whippet champions have been bred by Longlesson.

Jan has handled many of the top whippets over the last 40 years. She has won the whippet national twice, and many specialty shows. Longlesson strives to produce dual purposed, correct hounds which is evidenced by the combination of both conformation and field titles of the dogs they produce. Jan and Steve have both been lure coursing judges for the past 30 years and active coursing their own hounds. Most recently, they have also added Pharaoh hounds into their fray, having just co-bred a litter with Thom and Pam Haig of Mia Pharaoh’s which has turned out 6 champions, 3 group winners and 3 dual champions.
