Welcome to Kuvana~Çoban Köpeği

My dogs are not just my pets and my lifestyle alongside my horses at SilverMoons Stud, they are my family, my friends & my guardians.

My first Anatolians were imported from Australia back in 2004,  I could not wait to meet my two fur babies and let the adventures begin

Cujo & Neva 

I met my first Anatolian Shepherd Dog in 1992 When I visited a large cattle and sheep farm in Masterton, New Zealand.  A very large bitch named Beaver, she had the biggest kennel outside with a tunnel that went under one side to a cave and out the other,  it clearly pays to have a safe escape route!

I spent the weekend evenings in front of the fire cuddling with Beaver. She was great soul company, and needless to say,  I did not want to go home.  I promised myself that one day when I owned my own land I would be adding one of these amazing and beautiful dogs to my life.

When that day finally came,  the first thing I wanted on 13 acres was a guardian to make me feel secure and finally bring this beautiful breed into my world. Most of my life I always had large dogs, mostly German Shepherds and for 6 years I bred my beloved Siberian Huskies Under Kennel Akiska.  I thought why just get one Anatolian Shepherd Dog, clearly, it needs some company, so I organized to import two puppies from our neighbor Australia.

I never thought that I would enter the show ring, but I decided to do just that, So off I went to learn about the show world with my puppies.

So the adventures really began

Cujo would rather be home on the farm, than the show ring.


Now my journey continues with new Imports from The Czech Republic and Australia already made up to NZ Champions and now my first females from my kennel name to NZ Champion, their daughters Palace, and Aby.
