Dekadance Staffords EST 1995
Panthyon Rottweilers EST 2018
Ou1995 saw my (Rachel) first fur baby join my family - his name was Cam and he was a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He was shortly followed by Ollie (another CKCS). Cams breeder Lynne encouraged me to show him and she went on to be a mentor, friend and surrogate Nana to my 2 legged children.
In 2002 my son fell in love with the neighbours dog and after months of watching how gentle natured this "notorious" breed was to my 5 year old son, and showed him so much love and tenderness, it then saw me embark on finding our first Staffordshire Bull Terrier - the passion was then ignited!
I have always held a huge respect for all creatures great and small and believe that all animals need understanding and love. I have spent the last 15 years + learning about the different dog breed types, and have had the pleasure of campaigning many of the different breed types to their Australian Championship (I have titled well over 100 dogs). A Special thanks to the incredible owners that have allowed me to nuture their dogs in my home and the show ring, and being able to say I have made a few "Australian Firsts"
Dekadance proudly watched my 7 year old daughter Chloe show and title the first Neuter Champion in Australia, and we also loved and handled the first Belgian Shepherd to win a Best in Show (1st) at a Royal Show (our 2 very proud moments)
I (Scott) have always had a passion for all things animals, dogs and community. As a Diver (and instructor), my passion for conservation and preservation of habitates spans my love of all creatures underwater and on the ground. Along with this passion comes an inate need to also help protect what we love (our bush and surrounds) so I have also spent the last 10+ years as a volunteer fire brigade officer and dedicated my time to supporting fellow Australians via volenteering in crisis fire situaions all over Australia. My love of Rottweilers came about whilst I worked as a dog trainer and handler in correctional centers. Through working with the breed I truly understood "the ways of the Rottie". I have used this passion (and my handling skills) to then rescue many "untrainable dogs" of all breeds, and rehibilitate them to ensure long and fruitful lives. I especially love the so called "misunderstood breeds" (Rottweilers, Shepherds and now Staffords in particular)
With our union, our goal is the encouragment of type and temperament within the Staffordshire Bull Terrier and Rottweiler breeds. We believe there are too many people out there breeding "for profit", not the benefit of the breed and therefore we are striving (along with others) to prove "that healthy sound dogs, fit for function, with sound temperaments are still alive and well".
We do not breed regularily, with our focus more on the promotion of the Breeds, through showing, rescue and education. However when we do breed it is done with research and respected advise from other Breeders.
Our dogs are raised in a family environment, with a direct emphasis placed on their wellbeing - they are not "just the dog" they are a valuable part of the family.
They sleep inside the house, and are free to come in and out when they like. We do not agree with the thought that "a dog lives in the back yard, and thats it".
As mentioned - our dogs ARE shown and ARE consistant winners; although as exciting and important this is, it really is just the icing on the cake for us. At the end of the day, win or lose we love them completely anyway (as it should be)!
Dekadance and Panthyon are proud to say that all our dogs are health tested accordingly as per ANKC regulations. All meet the requirements and are also certified "Clear" of genetic desease.
Certificates can be provided on request.
