Bocsavil Kennels is a small kennel situated in the lovely Southern Highlands NSW Australia. I started showing my first boxer Setantas Ruby Red AD " Cleo" in 1998 and although Cleo never worked out for the show ring the bug had bitten me and I was hooked. I decided to try our hand (paws) at agility and this seemed to be Cleo's calling, she achieved her first title of Agility Dog (AD) pretty quickly but circumstances changed for me and i had to stop showing and doing agility for a while.

In the mean time along came Morgan (whom I have been happily married to for 7yrs) and his interest in dogs was the same as mine. Our Kennel was registered with Dogs NSW in June 2000. We then purchased our first Dobermann Aust Ch. Shakaton Memphis Jazz CCD ET WAC who was a multi sweepstakes winner, BIG winner and Class in Group winner. Jazz completed his Endurance Title at the age of 7yrs and 9months just in time for the cut off of 8yrs old. He has proven himself to be true to the Dobermann breed standard qualifing for his Working Aptitude Certificate.
Not long after Jazz along came our first Belgian Malinois Aust Ch. Blackwolf M Don Quixote, a breed which Morgan had a love for, for a long time, Quixote exceeded our expectations by winning a 10pt Best of Breed & Puppy In Specialty Show at the Illawarra & South Eastern Belgian Shepherd Dog Club of NSW Specialty Show in 2001. He was also a sweepstakes winner (which you dont see many malinois winning a sweepstakes) and also classes in group. Quixote showed his allround working dog abilities by working as a patrol security dog and still performing in the show ring on his days off, he was a true testament to the working Malinois breed. Sadly Quixote was killed by a Brown snake in 2007 and is still sadly missed.
We now also share our home with Pippa, Piper & Paige the boxers, Digby the Miniature Pinscher and Hara the belgian Malinois whom will be testing their paws out in the show ring, obedience ring and other performance sports. Our males are available to approved bitches.
In 2008 we aquired our third Belgian Malinois, Vanrusselhof Uknow Who, he was happily named by our four year son and it stuck "Shrek". "Shrek" has hit the show ring with a bang with a number of Minor Puppy in Groups and MULTIPLE Minor In Show ALL BREEDS as well as a Best of Breed at Canberra Royal 2009 and now the Best of Breed at Melbourne Royal 2009. "Shrek" now has multiple Puppy in Group awards and a Puppy in Show to add to his list of credits. This makes "Shrek" the first Malinois in Australia to be awarded Mulitple Class in Show Awards at All Breeds level to date.
Shrek is now an Australian Champion gaining the last of his required points at Illawarra & South Eastern Region of NSW Champ Show with a BOB (6pts) and Junior in Group under Judge Mr M DERBYSHIRE (SA), Thus making him Aust CH Vanrusselhof Uknow Who. At the time of gaining his Title Shrek had amassed a total of 212pts.
