Meet the Mortons..
We are Dianne, Grant and Kurt Morton, here you will find a little about us.
We have been involved with German Shepherds for over 30 years and love the breed. Having strong foundations in obedience and agility, we branched out into showing and then breeding. We have continued to be actively involved with the GSDL throughout our breed involvement and have previously been Chief Obedience instructors, Head Trainers and State Identification Officer.
We are a small, yet successful kennel, priding ourselves on the dedication towards our dogs. We devote ourselves to breeding quality dogs. We only breed with sound dogs, and aim to find suitable, loving homes for our puppies. We do everything in our power to ensure that all of our puppies have a safe and happy environment to live and grow. Our motto is 'Breeding for quality, not quantity' which reflects our ethical and considerate breeding program. We are not like every other breeder. We breed very minimally.
All of our dogs have passed the GSDCA breeding schemes, which includes screening for Hip dysplasia and Elbow dysplasia & are breed Survey Classified (temperament and conformationally assessed). We abide by strict codes of ethics set out by the GSDL, GSDCA & DogsNSW. Additionally, we abide by our own high standards and strong morals. You will not see us having multiple litters, raised in a kennel situation. We breed only when we wish to keep something ourselves and from sound lines. We pride ourselves on our animals and the level of dedication, commitment and care we provide. Our dogs are not kennelled or in runs, they interact and play with each other and are part of our family. We have a designated puppy raising area where they can grow once old enough to leave our house nursery. Check out our gallery of images here
We are very proud Eukanuba ambassadors. Our puppies are raised and adults conditioned on Eukanuba and it shows.
We only breed with sound dogs, both in mind and body. Our high standards and commitment to our animals, ensures that our puppies are of the highest quality in all aspects.
Our passion, is also one shared by our son. Kurt participates in all areas including; handling, breeding and dog photography. He is also a previous NSW GSDL Youth Representative and has been actively involved with Youth ambassadorship on a National scale through the GSDCA and held State Youth Officer position on a number of ocassions. Kurt is an accredited Junior Showmanship judge and has judged across Australia and in New Zealand and is currently training to be a Working Dog Conformation Show Judge.
Thinking about buying a German Shepherd?
Our years of dedication to the breed have rewarded us with numerous top high achieving animals, but also valued family members. We only breed selectively and very occasionally. From time to time we have puppies available. Our carefully planned litters combining our renowned champion mother line are raised in our loving home environment and are apart of our family.
Please check out our Available page to find out if we have anything available or planned.
