Our Facilities

Von Forell’s breeding and training facilities have been designed to accommodate the most in-depth breeding and training available. Our facility is situated 45 kms north from the city of Melbourne, and 45 kms from the Airport, nestled in Pheasant Creek in the beautiful Kinglake Mountains. We believe a most ideal location for breeding healthy dogs.


Von Forell’s facilities are designed to assist in educating and developing the growing number of performance Dobermann and German Shepherd enthusiasts. Puppy owners are encouraged to attend developmental classes during the critical periods. Right through to week 16, Von Forell ensures that everything goes according to plan and nothing is left to chance. We ensure your pup is exposed to a carefully structured developmental program that emotionally prepares your puppy to develop into a confident and balanced adult establishing a harmonious existance with you and your family.

New owners are provided with on-going tuition on how to care for and train their dog as part of our life-time service.

We offer comprehensive tuition to new time owners and professional dog handler who also wish to advance their personal knowledge and  handling skills.

Our whelping (breeding) rooms are lined with epoxy resin – consequently there aren’t any seams where bacterial or viral growth can occur to harm the pups within the facility. This ensures that the puppy you receive from us are in perfect condition. The rooms are mounted with colour cameras for constant monitoring of the mother and her puppies. Each room has its own air purifier to eliminate bacterial growth. The whole facility has been equipped with an elaborate security system to ensure the safety of all dogs. Most of our brood bitches live with their families and come to the kennels to whelp and raise their pups.

Von Forell ensure all pupies undergo a thorough imprinting and socialisation program before leaving for their new homes. Our structured and strategic environmental stimulation gives them the best chance of achieving their full genetic potential. Our puppies also enjoy the very best diet (Performadog – Super Premium Dry Dog Food) with a Veterinarian on call 24 hours of the day, 7 days of the week.

Von Forell are very proud of their dogs and are more than happy to show your puppy’s sire (Father) and dam (Mother). However, there are rare occassions where your puppy might be the result of an A.I. (Artificial Insemination) mating – due to the sire either having passed away or be situated in another part of the world. Never the less, Von Forell has video footage of the parents from their extensive video library and would be more than happy to assit you. The video library consists of many past and present dogs from 1976 – current.
