The dream of Berradell Boxers began in the 1970s when our first boxer came into our lives. It has been a long journey - with the blessings and joys of many adored boxers - to arrive where we are today.
Berradell Boxers is a very small kennel in NW Tasmania, Australia, and we only breed puppies occasionally. Our focus is on breeding healthy, typey boxers with fabulous temperaments, and we aim to produce perfect companion boxers. We are very chosey about where our puppies go. We want to ensure they are treasured by dedicated boxer families as beloved 'forever' companions, inside the home - where they belong!
Our dogs are involved in every part of our lives and we raise litters inside our home. Puppies receive a fabulous headstart in life through premium nutrition, health management, gentle positive training techniques, and early toilet training. Best of all, our carefully controlled development and early socialisation techniques are centred on the internationally renowned Puppy Culture program. The work we put into raising our puppies means they join their new homes with an exceptional level of confidence and resilience - essential ingredients for a relaxed, calm and confident dog later in life.
We think every child (and inner child) should grow up and enjoy life with a boxer! They are joyous, loyal, energetic, affectionate and fun-loving. No home is truly complete without one!
When the time was right to begin our lifelong dream of breeding boxers, we chose our foundation bloodlines very carefully in order to start with the very best genetics in heath, type and especially temperament. At the time, our lovely old boy, Rowillomar The Drummer, was our beloved pet boxer. He was a stunning boy and had a temperament to die for, so we sought the same lines for our foundation sire. Thanks to frozen semen, we were able to use the very same sire - Gr Ch Sjecoin American Express - to impregnate our lovely foundation bitch, Jatzbee Enchanted Traveller, aka Tuscany.
As a result, our gorgeous boy, Berradell Intrepid Traveller (AI), aka Tripper, came into the world and brightened our lives! His temperament is divine and he has all the ‘elegance with substance’ the breed standard calls for. We know great things are in store for this amazing young dog.
Tripper’s first year in the show ring was very successful, with many Best Baby Puppy, Minor Puppy and Puppy in Group sashes. The Covid-19 pandemic wrote off the 2020 show circuit, but this has given Tripper time to grow through adolescence and he will return to the show ring in 2021 as an impressive young man, ready to take on the world!
Our next litter is due soon, in July 2020, and we await these babies with great anticipation! Tuscany was bred to the magnificent Aus Ch Johvi Kiss The Girls, aka Max. This impressive young dog brings some of the very best UK lines into our breeding program including Winuwuk and Maromad, renowned Australian lines through Jetboom and Picamac, and the great NZ sire: Gr Ch Sanlian Executive Briefing At Bardinet (imp NZ). Max has been DNA health tested DM and ARVC clear and he has a superb temperament.
We plan to retain the best female puppy from this litter to continue our carefully planned breeding program. The prospect of choosing her is beyond exciting! We can’t wait! Stay tuned for some serious Puppy Spam in our Girls Gallery!
We only breed occasionally - when we want to strengthen the genetics of a particular line or add to our show/breeding team. Our puppies are carefully raised using the internationally renowned ‘Puppy Culture‘ protocols. This requires a lot of work, but it creates confident, resilient, thinking puppies with great bounce-back and exceptional socialisation skills.
After choosing our keeper, we send the other puppies in the litter to deserving homes. These families have been very carefully chosen, through a rigorous process of scrutiny into the type of homes and lifestyles they will offer one of our precious babies. We maintain a small waitlist and rarely advertise litter availability. We don’t need to - word of mouth is our best exposure! Once on our waitlist, your patience is required since it may be a year or two between litters, but your prize is worth the wait!
