John and Anita Fryer We are preservation breeders' promoting this breed to the general public at all times for show, sports and as family dogs. It is the family dog owners that share their beloved pets to the public and we know that even more so than show homes, its the family dogs out there showing off their dogs to anyone wanting to listen and see them, that counts. 


Achieving world renown status, for outstanding show dogs for over 37 years.


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 Qld with our children, several dogs and 2 cats. 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 my 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.
