Dinda Kennels is located in the South Island of New Zealand at Dunedin. It was established in 1983 with the arrival of MacDuff (Murdo of Belnabodach CDX) who excelled in the obedience ring, and his dam Ch Corrie of Belnabodach. Corrie came to us with half the challenge certificates required for her title, and an apprenticeship in show ring handling was undertaken in the winning of the remaining four.

Corrie had one litter for us, but it wasn’t until the arrival of Kenzie (Ch Prosper Hi Phashion) from Leonie Clarke in 1987 that breeding was seriously considered. Kenzie proved to be an excellent foundation bitch producing for us our first champion dog, Ch Dinda Steal’n the Fashion (Ruskin), and bitch Ch Dinda Masked Fashion (Revan). Both were extremely successful in the show ring during the 1990′s being All Breeds Reserve and Best in show winners respectively.

Ruskin’s line bred on from his tri daughter Charlotte (Dinda Tri To Be Nice), and her son and daughter Dougall (Ch Dinda Steal’n The Night) and Donney (Ch Dinda Just Plain Nice), both again being consistent winners in the ring. Dougall’s daughter Ch Edenmist Top Billing came to us as a 10 week old puppy and as well as being most successful in the show ring and achieving an All Breeds Best in Show at the age of 14 months, Billie has also been an outstanding brood. Retained from her first litter was Alice (Ch Dinda Dress Rehearsal) and from the second Roly (Ch Dinda Rolling N Riches).

A change in emphasis in pure breed dogs from having not only the beauty perspective but a requirement for genetic health as well saw us import the bitch Aust Ch Nedsur U Know U Love Me (Flirt) from Sydney, and Nightwood Did I Do That (Oscar) from Western Australia. These dogs will take us to another level as we look forward to integrating them with our already established, successful line.
