Coppertop Absolut Party Boy
‘Zak’ has an amazing temperament, a very happy outgoing nature. Due to covid 19 he has not been able to hit the show ring as yet but I’m sure when the time comes he will make his presence known.
“George” is owned by myself, (Helen) & Frank Prainess from Clarendon, SA. After a lengthy hiatus from dog shows I dared to take the plunge back into show ring. I might also add that I vowed to never have another male & definitely not a RED!! Fast forward 15 years & I am the now the proud owner of a red male!! This man is not like any other that I have owned. I might add that I have owned & had this breed in my life for 45 years. George has a personality to die for & has looks to match.
George isn’t shown very often as his owner (me) doesn’t like the heat or the cold.
At the tender age of 8.5 months he was awarded DCC & RUBOB at the prestigious Winter International Show under Mr Daniel Ceres Rubio (Brazil). George has also been awarded excellent at several CAICIB shows.
Most recently George attended the 2019 Royal Adelaide Show, with an entry of over 1800 dogs he was awarded BIG3rd in Group 6 under Mr Michael Leonard (IRE). Needless to say I’m very proud of this young man!
“Kye” is owned and loved by Dianna Argy and Angela Mundy in Canberra, ACT.
Levi is the most adorable affectionate dog anyone could hope to own.
From the day he arrived from New Zealand he decided he was mine & attached himself to me immediately.
Levi won puppy in show at the DCV dobe show in November 2013, qualifying for puppy of the year, although we didn’t attend due to being OS at the time. He has since accumulated points toward his champion title & numerous junior in group awards from just a few outings.
Levi was awarded Reserve challenge dog at the Sth Aust Dobemann specialty June 2014 under Dr. Andy Hudono (Ind)
September 2014 (18 mths old) saw Levi take best of breed & Open in Show at the Utility Club show in Perth judged by dobermann specialist Mrs Christina Gatti (Brz), Weissworlf Dobermanns. Also winning RUISS at the Dobe Open show & placing 2nd in open dog at the champ show from a very strong dog line up.
Late in 2015 Levi moved to Canberra to be campaigned & owned by Dianna Argy. He accumulated many groups & a BIS Utility & numerous class in group/show awards to bring up his tally needed to become a supreme champion. A huge congrats to Dianna & Levi for gaining such a coveted title.
“Callum” is the most sweetest natured boy one could ever hope to meet. He is loved by everyone who meets him.
He began his show career at Easter 2019 & from there has amazed us with his fabulous results. In just 4 months & competing against his stunning half sister Bridie, accumulated over 350 points which included 4 x Best exhibit in group, Runner up Best Exhibit in show & Runner up in Group plus numerous class in group & in show awards & Best in Open Show all breeds at his first show in Qld, where we stayed for the winter months. Up to November 2019 he has massed over 600 points & 8 Best in group awards at just 15 months of age. I believe the best is yet to come for this amazing young man. After cancellation of all dog shows in March, Callum needs just 2 more groups & less than 200 points for his supreme title. We look forward to getting back in the ring to finish off this prestigious title.
After a 10 month lay off December 2020 saw us do a trip to SA & Callum picking up group #9.
Back in the ring again in Victoria in January for a Runner-up in group before we saw another shutdown but since then he has managed to collect cc’s & best of breeds at every show. The highlight was being awarded his 10th group & going on to winning Runner-up Best exhibit in show & then a runner-up in group on the same weekend. Now just those last point for his supreme!
“Saxon” showed a lot of promise winning Puppy in Group and reserve challenge dog at his first outing in October 2007 aged just 10 months.
Showing a lot of promise at his first outing winning Puppy in Group and reserve challenge dog in October 2007 aged just 10 months. Shown sparingly due to living in a pet home he went onto winning 2 Best Exhibit in Show awards at breed specialties, Best of breed Melbourne Royal 2012, plus numerous class in show awards at specialty & all breed shows. Saxon passed away from natural causes aged 11.5 years.
Saxon has been DNA tested Vwd CLEAR & DCM 1 negative
Rob and I are absolutely owned by Josh, he is bossy and very demanding, but also a big smooch who loves nothing more than to climb up on my lap, uninvited of course, and is the love of my life.
Josh had an interesting start to life being presented at birth as a stillborn and left wrapped in a towel on the table to be buried. However, due to the inquisitive nature of a young boy who noticed a slight gasp, Josh was revived with mouth to mouth and vigorous rubbing and slowly he began his awakening into this world, something we are eternally grateful for.
Josh has had a fabulous career so far with lovely wins as a baby through to now in the Open Dog class. These include specialty class in show and Runner-up in show win & Best in Show Qld in May 2009, plus numerous Best of Breed and Best in Groups wins not to mention the obedience title, endurance title and more recently his Tracking Dog title, all gained along the way and of course siring several litters and of course the best one of all his Grand champion title.
Josh has an amazing temperament, a very easy going boy who is friendly with all the canine girls and boys he meets and being a people dog too he is a pleasure to take out to any event.

Josh has been shown only a handful of times in 2008 and like his daughter Kendra has picked up challenges/Best of Breed at almost all shows. His limited showing has been due to us campaigning 2 of his sons, Nasa and Saxon, to their titles. Now this goal has been reached for both of them, titling within 2 weeks of each other, Josh made a return to the ring in November. We will now begin the task of attaining his grand champion title, a title we believe he deserves to be given the chance at.
