STAVAST BOUVIERS are Ralph and Henny Kammer. We live in the Southern
Highlands of NSW,
about 200 kilometers south of Sydney, Australia.
We have been interested in Bouviers for as long as we can remember ( right back to Koenemans'
Sappemeer Bouviers in Holland). The breed has owned us since we got our first Bouvier: CH
SAVANNA DARK CAPRICE in 1983. Our first litter was bred in 1986 by CH WATERBEAR ANDRIES
and produced four champions.
The aim of our kennel is to breed confident, healthy Bouviers, conforming as closely as possible to
the FCI Breed Standard. With this in mind we have bred from wellknown Dutch imports such as:
KABAL TARA v.d.CERBERUSHOF, GISTAAR BIJOU v ROVIKA and EROS KIRA v.d.
VANENBLIKHOEVE, amongst others.
Our next broodbitch was one of three born by KABAL TARA v.d.CERBERUSHOF out of Belgian/
Dutch CH SENDY BARRY v.h.SYLVERHOF. In 1991 we were lucky enough to import a beautiful
bitch from the Netherlands:GOSTA ASHA v.h.GRENDARCOHOF.
Although the Bouvier is still relatively rare in Australia, the results of our dogs have been excellent.
From our repeat mating: Eros x Gosta, two dogs and three bitches have been placed BIG at least
once under different judges.We have produced fourteen champions including Australias first Bouvier
Grand Champion. They have won several Classes in Show as well as multi CD awards in obedience.
All our dogs used in our breeding program are hip scored and health checked.
Our priority remains careful breeding for temperament, soundness and correct continental type
