Since 1995 Lesley and Rob Kane have owned and operated Moonshadow Kennels with an initial focus on the beautiful Belgian Shepherd.  Our aim has been to show, breed and share lovely Belgian Shepherd dogs that are healthy, happy and contribute to the maintenance and development of the international standard for the breed. We are located in country New South Wales, approximately half-way between Sydney and Canberra, and a one hour drive from Sydney Airport. 


Of the four varieties of Belgian Shepherds, we focus only on the elegant long-haired ones - the black haired Groenendaels and the Tervuerens, who are reddish-brown or grey coloured, with black face masks.  One of our Groenendaels, "Dancer" (Australian Champion Moonshadow Dancing Bear) and one of our Tervuerens "Paco" (English Champion and Australian Grand Champion Corsini Lysander) are pictured above.


We acquired our first Japanese Spitz, “Coco” from Daesdaemar Kennels in September 2011 and starting showing her soon after.  Coco (now Australian Champion Daesdaemar Moon and Stars) is pictured above centre. In August 2012 we acquired another lovely little Japanese Spitz, “Poppy” (now Australian Champion Esilanna Cupcake), from Esilanna Kennels and in November 2014 “Teddy” (now Australian Champion Mannerking Front Page News) joined us from Mannerking Kennels. And most recently in March 2016 “Britta” (Australian Champion Mannerking Follow Your Dreams) joined us also from Mannerking Kennels.

The Belgian Shepherd is renowned world-wide for their elegance, agility, loyalty and the intense bond that they form with their owners. 


The Japanese Spitz was developed as a companion dog, and should be affectionate, alert, intelligent, bold and lively.
