Elbasco Kennels is a small Australian kennel which has owned and/or produced top quality German Shepherd Dogs for 39 years (since 1972). Elbasco Kennels was registered in 1975 and has bred dogs which have gone on to achieve Excellent gradings, Breed Survey Class I, Australian Championships, Obedience titles, Best in Show wins and has owned and/or bred a number of class winners (and National Medal wins) at Nationals. We are the recipients of the German Shepherd Dog Council of Australia's Bronze Medal for hip soundness despite not breeding on a large scale.
Elbasco Kennels was the home of the legendary Australian Champion Karlrach Kentucky Lad, Triple National Medal Winner and top sire during the 80s (who can still be traced in many of the top winning Australian German Shepherd Dog's pedigrees today) (see About Kentucky Lad page. This page has been set up as an historical record of interest).
We are primarily concerned about the welfare of the German Shepherd Dog not only from a breeding perspective but also about the welfare of individual German Shepherd Dogs. We have been members of the German Shepherd Dog League for 38 years, we were amongst the first kennels in NSW to use the German Shepherd Dog League's Tattoo Scheme, we breed survey and x-ray our dogs and all our breeding stock have excellent hip and elbow scores (check out the scores on Our Girls page).
We had a break from breeding and showing during the 90's but 2002 saw us back on the show scene with our show dogs/pets, Karlrach Whoopee Doo AZ, her daughters - Aust Ch. Elbasco Harlequin AZ BSCL1 Excellent and Elbasco Harmony AZ; and the rest of our team - Rufstone Black Pearl AZ BSCL1 Excellent, Rufstone Ruby Jane AZ BSCL1 Excellent, Ambala Lolly AZ BSCL1 Excellent, Aust Ch. Drepesh Lime N Tango AZ BSCL1 and Elbasco Urbana Rose AZ BSCL1. (see Our Girls page).
German Shepherd puppies are occasionally available to good homes.
