Multi RUISS & Multi RUIS Aust & NZ Ch Copperdobe Stand N Stare (Imp NZ)

‘Preia’ is our gorgeous pocket rocket, loves everything in life and particularly the show ring.  She is very neat & compact, lovely reach & drive & catches the judges eye quite often, which is apparent by her 3 Runner-up in Specialty wins by 18 months of age.

She qualified for puppy of year at her first outing in the puppy class with a puppy in show by an international judge.

Preia has spent time in NZ busy with motherhood duties producing some lovely puppies with several titling already.  Selene, Eadie, George, Nico & Sassy with others on their way to being champions too.  After her first litter she hit the show ring to gain her NZ title including 2 Runner-up in show all breeds & qualifying for Show Dog of the year but was unable to attend.

In 2018, aged 5.5 years, Preia was awarded Runner Up in show at the Sth Island specialty under dobe specialists Mr Steve Yianou. Preia then retired & now lives with Anita in NZ.

“Selene” is another gorgeous Preia daughter, a full sister to Eadie.  One of 3 sisters to title from the litter. She is a vibrant happy go lucky girl who loves the show ring & has had many lovely wins including numerous class in show awards but now is semi retired to the couch & will be bred to Callum in 2020.

Aged 7 months

Aged 2 years


Eadie’s first show was the DCV specialty winning Minor in show (Nov 2016)

Her first all breeds saw her win reserve bitch & RUBOB from the puppy class & a few weeks later reserve bitch & Puppy in show, qualifying her for the puppy of the year competition.

Eadie gains her points at her first show in junior & only her 3rd show. Challenge & RUBOB & junior in group under dobe specialist Mrs Gwen Ford.

Her champion title came relatively easy with being a consistent BOB winner, many under international judges.

February 2019

“Kendall” is from Preia’s first litter & is a real sweetheart like her mum. Very few shows under he belt but on the odd occasion she makes an appearance she manages to do quite nicely.

Kendall produced her first litter in August 2018.  Our first dual sired frozen semen litter using my heart dog “Josh”, BISS/RUISS Grand Ch Coppertop Perfect Liason CD TD ET & his son “Saxon” Multi BISS Ch Coppertop Rayz A Rumour.  A decision that has proved to be an absolute success producing the evervesent “Bridie”, the Josh daughter, & the very handsome “Callum”, the Saxon son.  These 2 have exceeded my expectations both in conformation & temperament, a dream come true as a breeder.  See more about these 2 kids on their own pages.

Spring Fair in Sydney were her first shows back after a long break where she managed Opposite Intermediate in Show at the DCNSW specialty.

DCV 2019 Open show Kendall was awarded Runner-Up Best Exbibit in Show.

Kendall will be mated to Kye on her next season, later in 2020, can’t wait to see what this pair will produce.











Macey” has an amazing temperament, so easy going & absolutely loves life.

A show pony from day one, Macey was awarded 6 baby in group awards & 2 baby in show awards whilst in the baby class beginning her show career in Perth.  Macey titled with a 19 point best of  breed November 2015, aged 12 months. Winning multiple group 1st & 3 Best Exhibit in Show plus Runner-up to Best exhibit from the puppy class at 10 months her style & class were well rewarded by the judges.

Macey spent time in New Zealand on motherhood duties but managed to pick up a nice Best exhibit in Show under dobe specialist Mr Doug Bowe in between her 2 litters. Rarely shown once returning to oz her last shows winning large open bitch classes at Spring Fair & Melbourne Royal before retiring from the show ring.

2019 Melbourne Royal Bridie challenge bitch & Callum 1st Junior dog

Bridie is sired by my heart dog, Josh, using frozen semen.  Josh passed away in 2013.  I cant believe how lucky I am to have this very special little girl.  Bridie is everything I could hope for in a pup, she is vibrant, smart, lovely confirmation & movement & great personality who loves the world.

December 2018: Bridie won baby in show at her first weekend of showing & the next a baby in group.  Lovely start to her show career.

May 2019: Bridie accumulating 96 points in 2 weekends including a best in group 1st & her next show her title at 9 months & 2 days old.
To say I’m super proud of this little show machine is an understatement. Thank you Josh (Grand Ch Coppertop Perfect Liaison CD TD ET) & Kendall (Copperdobe Vodkartini) for producing my gorgeous girl.

By 12 months of age Bridie had accumulated over 45 class in group awards & 25 class in show awards plus Best in show (2nd) all breeds. Class in show at 3 breed specialties in Adelaide, Qld & Melbourne.

Currently with over 800 points & 4 groups at just 16 months of age, cant wait to see what this little dynamo will achieve in the future.

March 2020 saw the end of shows for sometime due to covid.  Bridie now needs just a few more points & 5 groups for her supreme title.

9 months of no shows due to Covid-19, so as soon as allowed we took a trip to SA for a cluster of shows with Bridie & Callum on board & I’m pleased to announce that Miss Bridie collected enough points for her Grand Champion title.  Winning a Best in group first, Best exhibit in group at 2 shows & a best  of breed on the final morning plus 2 intermediate in show awards.

Very quickly in 2021 Bridie gains her 9th group & onto a Runner Best Exhibit in show with over 1200 entries.  Her Supreme title followed shortly after with Best in Group at Easter.

Bridie is currently #1 dobermann in Australia. (As per DOL pointscore)




“Savannah” is another one of my sweet girls, very much like her cousin, Paris. She loves to put her arms up around my neck and snuggle in for long cuddles, except that she doesn’t realise how big she has grown.

Savannah’s debut to the show ring was very pleasing, winning the Puppy bitch class/Opposite Puppy in Show at both Dobermann Open and championship shows on November 1st. Her brother Jag beating her for Puppy in Show.

Savannah’s first show since shown at the DCV specialty a year ago and she takes out the ultimate Best in Show under international judge Mrs Hilary Partridge-Duckham (UK).

She has had to wait in line whilst Kendra accumulated points toward her grand championship title but we made an exception for the specialty and so glad we did.

  • Savannah has won 1st place in the intermediate bitch class at ALL shows, bar one, (3—5 entrants), and been awarded reserve challenge bitch at almost every show until attaining her first all breed challenge points on the 27th December. Her brother Jag beating her for best of breed on this occasion.
  • 28th December: Best of Breed
  • Dobermann National 2010

    Dobermann National held in Sydney over Easter 2010 saw Savannah win 1st place in the A/Bred Bitch class and at the Host Show on the same weekend 1st again in A/bred Bitch and Reserve Challenge bitch

  • 24th April: Savannah wins her second Best in show at the S.A. Specialty under Mr R. Velez-Pico from Peurto Rico, this also gave her her champion title. First points gained with BISS Melbourne and finishing with BISS Adelaide, surely something of a record.
