We first started this journey into the world of breeding when we were provided with the opportunity to purchase a remarkable adult female from the Nordenstamm Kennel bloodline – Nordenstamm Nadine.
Nordenstamm Nadine (Coco) is our foundation brood bitch and gave us a fantastic entry into the world of working dog breeding. Nordenstamm Nadine (Coco) was an incredible opportunity we could not turn down! Nordenstamm Nadine (Coco) is from a long line of high performing working line malinois. Please see her family tree in the Our Dogs section.
Renae has had experience with the Malinois breed over the last 15 years. Renae’s first Malinois was a female called Yaasi, fittingly named after Cyclone Yassi due to her personality. Opperste is a small family-owned and operated kennel. The dogs in our breeding program are considered to be one of the family. We consider them in everything we do. We are interested in explosives detection, and we are working down this path with our dogs Odin and Nordenstamm Nadine (Coco).
In our breeding program we utilise dogs with European bloodlines. We aim for dogs with exceptional physical strength as well as strength and stability of character. This gives us the ability to offer our dogs for sale as suitable for sporting, operational, personal protection, and approved family environments. We pride ourselves on our commitment to careful planning, coordination, and leadership to achieve continuous improvement in working breeds’ health and genetic diversity.
Opperste Working Dogs are proud sponsors of Dog Sports events throughout Australia. We believe in striving together for the betterment of the working dog industry through collaboration and leadership.
