At Bronacre we consistently breed quality animals concentrating on soundness and temperament. Quality does not occur by chance, at Bronacre we make it happen.
Bronacre German Shepherd Kennel was established in 1984 by Edwina Kibble. It is now operated by Edwina and Peter Neale who are members of the Victorian Canine Association and the German Shepherd Dog Club of Victoria.
It is a very small kennel keeping only a few quality dogs. We believe German Shepherd Dogs are very individual animals and do not deserve to be kept in large numbers.
The kennel has built a reputation for breeding quality pets and show animals throughout Australia.
Bronacre Diamond Dust and Bronacre Topaz were our first animals to be breed surveyed and to gain the grading of Excellent in the 80's. Bronacre to date has bred many National and Main breed show winners including the Excellent Select graded animal - Seigeren Ch. Bronacre Ramoth.
We had the pleasure of campaigning the most successful dual purpose dog of his time. *Tannenholz Lido Class 1. 'A' Excellent. Excellent Obedience. Lido was highly placed in the National Show gaining 5th in Junior Dog and 6th in Open Dog in extremely tough competition in the '80's. On both occasions Lido was also Best in Trial and gained the Gold Medals in Obedience.
As well as supplying quality family pets and show dogs to all over Australia and overseas homes, Bronacre dogs are competing successfully in obedience competition, tracking, search and rescue and in Assistance Dog Programs. We have supplied other successful kennels with their foundation stock.
Success does not come by chance. In the past we purchased top class foundation stock to work with and bred carefully with only the best stock. We believe quality produces quality and will not compromise.
Our foundation bitches were:
*Tannenholz Mausi 'A' – a full German bitch by *Star vom Natoplatz and *Gitte vom Aiwald.
*Hagenstolz Hi Noon ‘A’ ‘Z’ Excellent by the Seiger - CH. Quincito Awol and Seigeren - CH. Landrina Majic Melody.
Our most famous dog was the legendary *CH. Hasenway Wild Knight E.T. ‘A’ ‘Z’ H-Neg. who we had the honour of whelping, raising and campaigning at Bronacre for his entire life.
Most of our stock descends from these animals.
Bronacre follows all GSDCA breeding schemes and we have been awarded both Bronze and Silver medals for producing animals with sound hips and elbows.
We are currently showing a select group of animals with great success.
All our dogs have been successfully shown and are all class winners and Excellent Graded.
At 2013 National in South Australia our Excellent graded Bronacre Dark Diamond won the Open Bitch Class and was awarded the Gold Medal.
In 2014 Bronacre Uluru Matilda was Puppy of the Year, Bronacre Dark Diamond was Show Dog of the Year and Bronacre Chewbacca was LSC Puppy of the Year.
Our current show team consists of Bronacre Salted Popcorn, Bronacre Blue Ice and Bluemax Salted Peanut.
