About Me

My husband Rory and I became involved with Great Danes in the early 1970s and have been breeding and showing ever since. We purchased our first great dane in 1975 and were blessed with a top show winning bitch and we were hooked. Since that time we have imported stock from Sweden and semen from USA which forms the basis of our current top winning danes.

Our Congistador Kennels is the #1 Great Dane Kennel in New Zealand and over the years we have produced
Dane of the Year 2001-2013 inclusive
Grand Champions and Supreme Grand Champions in NZ & Aust
41 Champions in USA, Australia and NZ
29 Best Exh & R/Up Best Exh in Show awards at Specialty Ch Shows
48 Best Exh & R/Up Best Exh in Show awards at All Breeds Ch Shows
Breeders of NZ top winning Great Dane of all time

Over the years I have served as Secretary for the Great Dane Clubs of Western Austraia, and New Zealand. I have also served on the executive of Great Dane clubs in Western Australia, New South Wales and New Zealand as Show secretary and various committee positions.. Currently I am the Show Secretary of the Great Dane Club Inc. I have also held varying positions on several all breeds clubs in Australia and New Zealand.

Great Danes are our love and our passion, and I cannot envisage a time when they will not be part of our lives. Currently we own 5 Great Danes and 1 French Bulldog
