Hi, I'm Kerry W.
I have been involved with working and training dogs for over 40 years and have been successful within the Obedience Ring with some Obedience Champions.

Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
Puppies don't leave until at least 10 weeks of age. This enables their Dam to raise them with her full care, feeding them until she chooses to wean them. It provides me with the time for a range of experiences both physically and mentally, so when they go to their new homes they are ready to take on their new…
No puppy leaves until they have had two vaccinations and two wellness check-ups by my Vet. My puppies are raised on only a natural RAW diet so they know how to eat meat, bones and offal - all the things a carnivore should eat for prime health.
Puppies are born in the house under 24/7 care. Once they are around 3-4 weeks, they transfer to the 'Nursery' where they encounter new sights, smells and sounds. From there they move to their dedicated puppy yard where they learn to play with a large range of entertaining play toys, sandpit, ball pit, play gyms and…

About the Breeder
A little about us
My dogs are my passion. I was lucky enough to be a member of the PAL Superdog Team, working closely with my dogs in the public eye, training and sharing all the wonderful things a dog can bring to our lives. Being able to live with them and bring puppies into the World is a blessing I don't take lightly. I spend many…
Why we got involved in breeding
After I discovered conformation showing it became a natural progression to want to breed with my winning dogs. I spent many hours at the elbow of a couple of amazing dog mentors who not only gave me their time but shared their valuable knowledge with me. I continue to study to ensure I am up-to-date with the latest…
Our special touch
I am very much about The Pack. I believe that dogs learn better and live happier when they have their Pack around them. I am their Pack Leader and as a strong, confident person they know they are cared for and that they can trust in my judgement and direction. Puppies go to their new homes needing a strong, confident…
