ABOUT AUBERNEE KENNELS
Aubernee Kennels has been owned and operated by Bruce and Faye Anderson since 1986
BRUCE ANDERSON - Owner
All his life Bruce has been involved with dogs. As a child his family owned Labradors and he obtained his first Irish Setter in 1974 and started out first in obedience and then into conformation showing in 1976. The Aubernee breeding prefix was started in 1980, first with the Irish Setters and then in 1990 with the German Shepherd Dogs.
His interest in dogs then extended into conformation judging in 1984 and in 2015 he gained his All Breeds License enabling him to judge all Groups and Best in Show at Championship Show level worldwide, as well as being a qualified German Shepherd Dog Breed Surveyor and German Shepherd Dog Specialist judge both here and in Australia. Bruce passed his German Shepherd Dog Council of Australia Specialist Judges' Extension Course on 1st October 2011.
As a natural progression, after hurting his back in a work accident, Bruce started Aubernee Boarding Kennels in 1986. Originally a builder, Bruce takes care of all the maintenance and repair jobs at Aubernee Kennels.
Having served on numerous Dog Club Committees over these years, holding positions of President, Vice-President, Breed Surveyor Co-Ordinator plus many more, he is currently Vice-President and Patron of the East Coast Ladies Kennel Association and on the DogsNZ Show Judges Committee.
