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
