~ About Us ~


 About Us
​John and I formed Masterkarn kennels in 1984 (Dobermanns) and in 1989 introduced our first German Pinscher which became our dominate breed. We live in SA and will soon be moving to Qld with our children.

John started obedience in 1975 with his German Shepherds he later became a trainer for DCSA in 1985 with his first Dobermann. He was Head Trainer for the DCSA in 1986. I trained her first obedience Dobermann 1979 then commenced training obedience classes in 1986 with the DCSA. Both of us became all breeds trainers in 1987.
​Dog Sport also became a part of our lives along with the show ring in 1984 with our first show Dobermann. John and I were heavily involved in the Working Aptitude testing in the early days with the DCSA. 
Our Dobermanns were highly successful in the Working dog field, security environment and with consistently major wins in the show ring, WAC and top place wins in obedience trials. 
Masterkarn kennels amalgamated in 2008 combining John’s Belgian Shepherds and Anita’s German Pinschers (main interest) and Dobes (now minor) breed interests. Our experience give us the multi-skills to cope with more than one breed and focus on each as needs be.

​​​Our vision
Our vision is to breed the all rounded German Pinscher, Affenpinscher and Dobermanns that can be worked, shown and still a genuine family dog.​ Our breeding program is always carefully examined and planned before the mating is done and always with the intention for us to keep a puppy for us to show or train for working as part of our program to develop these breeds.
​Our focus is on QUALITY * TEMPERAMENT * TYPE * CONFORMATION * HEALTH & TRAINABILITY with every breeding we plan developing a great healthy, happy dog.

Our vision includes the long term promotion of this amazing and old breeds for the show ring and family dogs.​ We en-devour to breed quality dogs that can win in the show ring and as companion performance dogs as long term breeders.

We have bred German Pinschers that have gained high obedience and agility training. Each of our dogs proved over and over again they were capable of performing in any or all of these fields and continues to be our vision and goals towards the future.  

We are the only breed founder of German Pinschers in Australia still breeding consistently. 

​​Campaigning our  Dogs

We don't get to shows as often as we would like but we are able to come up trumps when it counts.
A thought to consider competitions are not a true indicator of that breed or dogs competitive status. Quality is in that "LOOK" you see in a particular dog that exhibits breed type, that outstanding specimen that just grabs your attention AND meets the ideal of the breed standard.

If you like our breed type and feel comfortable with us, please do not hesitate to call us!  We "LOVE" to talk your ears off about our dogs!
Give us a call!!
