Breeder History
We purchased our first Dobermann in 1980 Ch Titan of Blue Spur, he had a heavy American influenced pedigree. Titan enjoyed much success in the ring with Ian at the helm showing him he notched up 7 all breed best In Shows. At that time we were then based in Greymouth on the West Coast of the South Island of NZ, so only had limited showing opportunities due to accessibility to most shows held in the South Island. We then went on to purchase our foundation bitch Deralyn of Avalon and at the same time formed our Kennels. Taking a Biblical name from the bible we called our kennels ‘Shadday’, which means “Almightly”. In time we moved forward to having bred our first litter, the resultant litter produced us two Champions. Their names were Shadday’s Devine Image and Shadday’s Devine Lover who was owned by Faye Botherway. We had a career move to Rangiora in North Canterbury NZ. We then purchased Cyrus a black and tan male from Dane McKay a stalwart of the breed whose successful kennel name is Dakared, and we titled him to champion status. In the 1990’s we formed an alliance with Lisa & Martyn Slade from the very successful Martyn Dobermann stud. First using Grand Ch Martyn Best Kept Moment, a son from Am Ch Cambria’s lasting Impression from semen imported from the famous Cambria Dobermann Kennels via Jim and Anne White very close friends of Martyn and Lisa. This produced two champions Ch Shadday Reddi Lets Pose (Casey) and Ch Shadday Reddi Take Note (Murphy), with Ch Shadday Reddi Lets Pose going on to be one of biggest specialist breed winners in the South Island. And one of NZ biggest ever bitch winning Specialty breed winners in the History of the breed. And the rest is now History as we continue to strive to be the best we can with the passion and dedication to bench mark the beautiful dobermann alongside our peers. We owe a great deal of our success to Martyn and Lisa Slade and have so much respect and admiration for their continued devotion to the breed. They strive to improve the breed and the results are obvious not only in the show ring but also in the quality of the brood bitches that produce our top winning dobermanns. We would also like to make mention of Helene Street (Debruk Dobermanns), she has been a great friend of ours for many many years and is also a Doberman enthusiast. In recent years we have joined forces with Helene and now own several dogs in partnership. Helene shows the dogs and has had great success and handled our beautiful boy Ch Shadday Destined To Be A Hit (Klein) to an All Breeds Best In Show. Klein currently lives in the North Island with Martyn and Lisa and in their expert hands has won his 2nd All Breeds Best In Show so we all look forward to number 3! Helene is currently campaigning a bitch from Klein’s first litter to Ch Shadday Reddi Let’s Pose. Ch Shadday Destined for Glory at Debruk (Phoenix) has had a great career so far and we wish Helene and Phoenix all the best for the future.
