Welcome to Kampftrieb Dutch Shepherds
Kampftrieb kennels is a small kennel located in Australia that is dedicated to importing, breeding and training working Dutch Shepherds of the highest level. We were the first people to import Dutch Shepherds of any kind into Australia, and since then others have taken our lead to also work with this breed in Australia.

We have imported our dogs from the un-registered KNPV bloodlines and not the FCI pedigreed ones, as the KNPV ones are by far the strongest. We will continue to import the best dogs and bloodlines in the future, always looking for the strongest and most powerful animals.
We are members of the Adelaide Euro Dog Sport Club, and as such we are training our dogs in the N.V.B.K. Belgian Ring programme. This allows us to continually test our dogs in a venue which tests dogs characters to the hardest possible level.
Prior to importing Dutch Shepherds we had previously owned and bred working Dobermanns, as well importing a large number of working German Shepherds from the best Czech/Slovak bloodlines. We also have owned and bred a number of working Malinois. After owning, breeding and training these different breeds we have found the K.N.P.V. Dutch Shepherds to be the best dogs for us, and we are therefore going to be putting all our time and resources into these dogs.
