Breeder/Puppy Enquiries - Demand for Old English Sheepdogs always outweighs supply.

They are so much the most popular dog wherever they go. But they do require somewhat more looking after than some other breeds.

Offering them your company, making them a cherished member of your family INSIDE your home, looking after their coat, meaning they’ll need an occasional good brushing every few days to ensure their coat doesn’t become matted, is mandatory and necessary when you have an Old English Sheepdog.

There are breeders in most States, even if there aren’t any puppies here in Victoria at the time you’re looking to get a new little puppy. We have developed an on-going puppy register which will constantly be kept up to date with puppies when they are available, from whom and from where, for you to contact.

Learn as much as you can and what it’s like to own and love an Old English Sheepdog, and if you are still prepared to look after one of them, nurture and love them for their life (10-12+ yrs), then contact us for information of any available puppies.

Championship Show - The Club hold a Specialty Championship Dog Show each year for OES only where we showcase all the best OES showdogs in Australia. Watch this page for the exact date, but it is usually held on the first weekend in November each year  at Dogs Victoria KCC Park in Skye, an outer south eastern suburb of Melbourne about 50kms from the CBD.

All categories of dogs from puppies to veterans, males,females or desexed,as long as they’re in full coat and groomed are able to enter a Championship Show and be judged against other Old English Sheepdogs in their relevant category.

All Breeds Clubs hold Championship Shows most weekends and you will find some OES exhibiting as well.

If you’re interested in showing or want to learn more about it (it’s called conformation) and join in even if you’ve never tried it before, please let us know. It’s a lot of fun and there are people in the Club who are only too happy to assist you in showing your dog which helps to promote the breed standard of our beautiful breed which is the core activity of all pure bred dog clubs.
