Hi I'm Jenny Joseph, WELCOME to my Kennels, in Cranbourne, Victoria (Australia).
Run the curser over each of the Australian States above & Tasmania for all the Australian German Shepherd Dog Clubs Inc.
Bodecka Kennels is a very small kennel which was first established in 1993,
I've was a member since 1989 and was an Obedience Instructor from 1991 to 2000 at the German Shepherd Dog Club Of Victoria Inc. (Skye Branch). I'm now a member of the Specialist Show Training branch which is one of the eleven branches located in Victoria. Classes offered to the members at branches are Obedience, Show Training, Agility, Tracking, Fly Ball, The Responsible Dog Program. Demo Classes are also available at some branches so when we are asked, we can promote our lovely breed to the general public. Breed Surveys & Breed Lectures are also held at some of the branches. The major specialty show held in Australia is the National Championship Show & Restricted Obedience Trial .
You will find that Australian dogs don't have any Schutzhund titles, this is because the Australian National Kennel Council Inc. will not recognize the sport, and as the German Shepherd Dog Club Of Australia is affiliated to A.N.K.C we have to abide to their rules.
As a breeder my aim is to breed Shepherds as close as possible to the German Standard that are sound in conformation with the desired working and temperament characteristics that the breed was designed for, which make it the most versatile and noble breed in the world. Bodecka litters will only come from Breed Surveyed stock which have passed G.S.D.C.A. Inc. National Council Breed Improvement Schemes.
All my litters are well socialized from the moment they are born, with many smells, sounds and different people to handle and play with them. Their puppy pen is like a child's play ground, with heaps of toys, obstacles and tunnels to play with.
All my own German Shepherds are obedience trained using positive methods, such as food and play drive.
You will also find only a very minute amount of people in Australia competing in both show and obedience.
Please take time to sign my 4th Guest Book
Thank you very much to all the people who have signed my old Guest Books, it's very much appreciated.
