|At TAGETARL we reach for the Stars, and our results bear testament to this aspiration.
At TAGETARL our dogs exhibit TRUE breed Type. They all have correct angulation, tail sets, ear and eye shape / placement,
skull to muzzle ratios, coat colour and texture. All our dogs move like the wind, effortless!
And quite honestly if they don't have ALL of these qualities then they are not a part of our breeding programme.
TEAM TAGETARL ...90 CHAMPIONS and counting...
At TAGETARL we believe in producing the complete and FUNCTIONAL animal. Our dogs are not only bred as a
showpiece but also to be a dedicated family companion. In our ever-changing world, we require a balanced, trainable
and adaptable family dog. If you dream of owning a dog who will succeed in the strongest of competition, or even
if you are just looking for a companion with STAR looks, then consider the quality that we consistently produce.
At TAGETARL we are cautious to guard our bloodlines. This is because we have been successful in eliminating
many of the problems and faults from our stock that are clearly still present in many dogs.
We have achieved this through a sound understanding of form and function, hard work and dedication over many decades.
This process has been aided by the added knowledge and application of a university background in genetics.
We have systematically pulled apart our lines and then re-constructed a sound breeding programme that is to be envied.
We are not saying that our dogs are perfect, every dog has areas that could be improved. But we are saying that we are aware of this and select individuals in our breeding programme that increase our chances of improving with each generation.
At TAGETARL we are serious about producing sound, healthy dogs. All breeding stock are DNA tested for PRCD.
At TAGETARL all dogs hip-scored have returned a reading UNDER the breed average.
At TAGETARL we have NEVER bred a deaf puppy.

|Hi Steve and Carol, Annie just wanted to wish her brother and sister a happy first birthday. I can't believe this clever, funny beautiful dog is a whole one today. It feels like she has always been part of our family. Some pictures of Annie with her best friend Aidan aged 9,
they are in-seperable. Kerry, Cairns Qld.
