About Me

My wife P at 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 Vice President of the Western Australia Non Sporting & Utility dog club, President of the Great Dane Club in both Western Australia and New South Wales and also the Central North & South Island Non Sporting & Utility Club in New Zealand. I currently hold the position of Vice President Great Dane Club Inc in 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

I first began judging in Western Australia where I was licenced to judge at Open show level. I obtained my licence to judge and award CCs to Great Danes at Championship shows in 1992, and since then have judged danes in Australia, Sweden and New Zealand, including the Qld Great Dane specialty and the Swedish Great Dane clubs 45th anniversary show 2008, and most recently the Midland and West of England Great Dane Club Ch Show UK 2013. I am also licenced to judge and award CCs in the Non Sporting Group at Championship shows and Best in Show at All Breeds at Open show level.
