About Kardin

Gold Medallion awarded 2014

Kardin Kennels was established in 1988 with the purpose of producing sound German Shepherd dogs both in body and mind. Over the years we have produced show Australian Champions, a Malaysian Champion, a Tracking Champion, Breed Surveyed CL.1 and CL.11, obedience titled, Excellent and Excellent Select graded animals and GSDCA National class winners and placegetters.

Kardin have been awarded GSDCA Bronze, Silver and Gold medallions for producing dogs with sound hips and elbows.

Bronze & Silver medallions
All 'Kardin' dogs/puppies are well socialised, mixing with other dogs at home and dog club when reaching a suitable age. Our puppies are registered on the Main register with Dogs Victoria. They are vaccinated and microchipped at 6 weeks & wormed fortnightly from 2 weeks of age. They are all reared on a premium holistic puppy/adult dog food.

All our puppies are from GSDCA Hip & Elbow Scored parents of excellent character and health.  Only the most current German/imported and Australian show bloodlines are used for breeding. When ready to venture into their new homes at the age of 8 weeks old, their new owner receives a sample pack of premium large breed puppy food (currently using Black Hawk Premium Holistic Puppy Food) and also a puppy pack, which contains all the necessary Australian National Kennel Club (ANKC) registration and paperwork for their puppy. We also include a 5 generation pedigree. This pack includes a comprehensive advice sheet with information on basic training, feeding, worming etc and much more for future reference. We offer ongoing support as long as required.
