We have owned Italian Greyhounds and Tibetan Spaniel for 15 years and Chihuahuas for six years. Prior to this we owned, showed and bred Shetland Sheepdogs. Barad Kennels was established in the early 1970s when we purchased our first Shetland Sheepdog. We have now bred a number of litters of both Italian Greyhounds, Tibetan Spaniels and more recently Chihuahua. We enjoy these great little dogs, with our fourth generation of Italian Greyhounds having great success in the show rings.

Prefix : BARAD (Italian Greyhound)

We are located in Tasmania and are the proud owners of a small number of Italian Greyhounds that live with us as housemates, bed warmers, show mates & occasional parents.

We have been involved with Italian Greyhounds for 15 years.

Our foundation started with a lovely bitch from the Wondoan kennel in Queensland and a stunning girl we imported from the USA in 2009.

We have now bred 18 litters over the last 15 years and are extremely proud of the dogs we produce, both those that we show and those that are companion dogs.

The breeding of healthy, socially adjusted confident Italian Greyhounds is our aim and finding fantastic loving homes for any dog that we breed is incredibly important to us.

We currently have a strong show team being campaigned in Tasmania chiefly by the amazing Di Wazny. Our current team includes Grand Ch Barad Imizwelo (Imy), Ch Barad Lomatia (Matty) Ch Barad Storm Warning (Bertie) and our little Wondoan beauties Ch Way Down South and Neut Ch Wondoan Wheres Wellesley.

For current news, show and litter news our Facebook group is a good place to look.

We were lucky enough to have two litters in 2017 a litter of two boys in 2018 and a litter in 2020 of two girls and a stunning male, all of which we have retained. All three, Sassy, Teddy and Rosie will be starting their show careers in Tasmania as soon as COVID restriction allows.

We genetically test all our dogs before they become parents.
