Established in 1991 and with over thirty years experience of breeding and exhibiting dogs Anduril is committed to producing Scottish Deerhounds of sound structure and temperament that can take their place in a caring household. Our breeding program has only been possible due to the valued co-operation and assistance we have received from a number of our Australian Scottish Deerhound breeders and exhibitors.
Lochbrowan Scottish Deerhound Kennels are located outside Taupo, NZ. Our aim is to breed deerhounds for three main points 1) to be good companions 2) to be excellent specimens of the breed with great conformation and true movement; and 3) to be capable of undertaking their original work. We are proud to offer some of the best bloodlines found in the world, and our dogs are making their mark in the show ring and in the field.
We welcome all enquiries about this wonderful and noble breed.
We have been showing and breeding hounds since 1972. In 1988 we acquired our first Borzoi followed in 1989 by a Deerhound. Due to business commitments, we exhibit our dogs only sparingly. Despite this we have done well in the showring. In 1994 we imported frozen semen from Fernhill Deerhounds in Canada and, in 2006, a Deerhound from Thistleglen in the USA. All our dogs are housedogs and part of the family.
I have been involved with Scottish Deerhounds since March 2010 I got my first Deerhound Ember from Bhealaich Kennels. She is Ch Bhealaich Prettyprecosus. I cannot thank Glenda and Chris enough for my beautiful girl who in July 2014 had her first litter. From this we kept Mirrahcle ~Aust Ch, Neut Ch Luvadeer A Beautiful Mirrahcle~ Mirrahcle became a neuter in 2020 and titled easily in 8 months after a lengthy lockdown. We are so proud of this girl. In 2022 Mirrahcle was Top Neuter Hound for Victoria.
In 2021 we welcomed a new girl to our kennels. This is Haiziedayz Narah. We cannot thank her Breeder/Co-Owner Katrina Hiller of Haiziedayz Kennels for the opportunity to own and show this beautiful girl.
We breed for temperment, type and soundness. We pride ourselves on the temperment of our dogs who are friendly, loyal, loving and outgoing.
We have had Deerhounds in our home since 2002 and have now decided to breed. Lainnir ( a Celtic word meaning Radiance and pronounced Lanir) was established in January 2013.
Our first litter born on the 21st May 2017 (Dam CH EILRIG GALENA Sire CH CLACHTOLL UALLACH) produced some lovely Deerhounds. We have kept CH LAINNIR KUNZITE from the litter and her profile is listed on this site, and her mother Lena has now achieved the title of GRAND CHAMPION. We are hoping to have a litter with Kunzite in 2021. The chosen sire will be announced as soon as we have a mating.

We are proud of our dogs achievments not only as top winning show dogs but also for their loyal companionship and as personal and family pets. The hounds live in rural Victoria.They keep fit by enjoying a run in the bush and swimming in the dam. All our dogs are tested for ALL forms of cardiac disease, including DCM and ARVC, using echo and proBNP.
For the love of a breed that offers inspiration and companionship, not only in modern times, but for hundreds of years. And in the hope my contribution to this breed will produce hounds that are sound and functional.
My small kennel competes successfully in both coursing and conformation, though most importantly enjoy a gallop in the paddocks and lounging together at home
