Shogunate Kennels is based in Melbourne, Australia.
We have owned Rottweilers since 1995. Shogunate Kennels was established in 2008 and has since been intricately involved in importing Rottweilers and breeding them for sound working temperament and correct type.
Shogunate is one of the very few kennels breeding true Rottweiler temperament. Our dogs are highly recommended for IPO or civil work. Our dogs are incredibly stable, highly trainable and intelligent family guardians. All of our claims can be verified and we prove our dogs are everything we say they are! In just a few litters our dogs have already gained an esteemed reputation amongst senior IPO trainers, security dog trainers and other Rottweiler breeders for their working character, high trainability and stability.
Shogunate prides itself on a respected breeding program. Our honest approach to selective breeding has been noticed and utilised by other breeders. We are one of the few who have 100% German working bloodlines. A loyal advocate and supporter of origin and breeding systems that are concerned with the total goals of the Rottweiler.
We are ethical breeders and compliant with all regulations and health checks.
Goals for our bloodline:
The primary goal of our breeding program is to produce the old style intelligent working dogs.
Our dogs must possess:
- High courage/ High level of self confidence
- Strong nerves
- Balanced drives
- Correct breed type/strong working type.
- Health, strength and vigour
- Sound working temperament: Intelligent, stable, calm, aloof towards strangers, devoted towards their family and affectionate towards children.
We strive for uniformed litters that are consistent reproducers of type and temperament.
Our dogs must be versatile for a variety of uses, including service dogs, law enforcement dogs, IPO sport, herding dogs and devoted family guardians.
We strive to continue to improve and refine our breeding goals, always keeping in mind today’s breeding influence on future generations.
Our approach to the particular details of breeding and continuing to refine our breeding goals is a passion derived from the expectations we value in our breed and the various disciplines we enjoy with our dogs. We also take great care in the health and training of our dogs. We are pleased to be able to offer correct guidance to our puppy buyers with respect to all matters of raising a superior puppy using right methods of handling, training and general care.
We are confident that the advice we provide along with the puppy from our breeding program will develop and nurture your puppy into an exceptional adult.
