Our trade mark of "Excellence by Design" and "Striving for Excellence" is because we believe our dogs are bred by planning (design) not pot luck or accident and "striving for excellence" in our breeding program to work and function in any field the specific breed is suited to. With correct training and a good owner there is "No Limitation" to what they can do. They have the basics to build on through careful breeding and temperament, sound structure, correct type for function and good health.

About Us


John and Anita formed Masterkarn kennels in 1984 (Dobermanns) and in 1989 introduced our first German Pinscher which became our dominate breed.
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. Anita trained her first obedience Dobermann 1979 then commenced training obedience classes in 1986 with the DCSA. Both 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. Anita and John were heavily involved in the Working Aptitude testing in the early days with the DCSA and many of our Dobermanns were highly successful in the Working dog field, actual security environment and with consistently major wins in the show ring, WAC and top place wins in obedience trials. 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.

We are the only breed founder of German Pinschers in Australia still breeding consistently.
Masterkarn and CelticMst 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-skilling to cope with more than one breed and focus on each as needs be. 

In 2012 Anita had finally decided to get a lovely Shiba Inu from Joyce Wheeler-Craze and Alan Craze of Wolfworx kennels and opened her own prefix of INUSUNS Shiba's separately from the well known Masterkarn prefix of the German and the new Affenpinschers.​​

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 is...online 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!!
