The Shepherd Dog of Belgium

Breeder since 1985
Judge – Belgian Shepherds & Herding Group
Owner since 1981

My name is Lynda Trotter and I have been breeding Belgian Shepherd Dogs under the Belgenbeau Prefix for since 1985.  I got my first Groenendael at age 20 (I have also bred in partnership under the Allianse and Laekinoz prefixs). Belgenbeau Kennels owns and breeds all four varieties of Belgian Shepherd – Malinois , Laekenois, Tervueren, Groenendael. For information on ANY variety, please feel free to contact us.

We breed for the improvement of the breed, not as a business. We limit the litters raised by us to ensure the puppies we breed have our full attention and commitment. If we do not have a litter planned, we will do our best to guide you in finding the most suitable puppy from another reputable and responsible breeder.


Our motto is...

Belgians with Bounce (breeding pairs are chosen for health and that of their forebears),  Brains (we choose for temperament and character as much as for type) & Beauty (consistent specialty winners).

We made a commitment to this breed almost 30 years ago, a commitment which is stronger than ever.

In return we are rewarded by the amazing character of the Belgian Shepherd ... once you have lived with a Belgian - you will never be the same! 🙂

I currently judge Group 5 at Championship level and Groups 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 & 7 at Open Show level. I am a Belgian Breed Specialist judge and while I love the All Breeds Shows, my true love is the Specialty Shows which are held in 4 states annually. Each year we show our best against the best and have always been very pleased with the results our dogs have gathered for us.

We continue to work closely with a number of other breeders throughout Australia and Overseas, people who share the same goals and ideals for the breed as we do.

We have imported from Belgium, Hungary, Portugal, Norway and the US. We have exported to New Zealand, Fiji, Tahiti, Hawaii, USA, Hong Kong, indonesia and Malaysia.

While this kennel has achieved many 'first's' since 1985, we would rather advertise what we do 'consistently' and that is to breed healthy happy and typical Belgian Shepherd Dogs.

This breed is similar in many ways to the German Shepherd Dog, however Belgian breed enthusiasts will tell you this breed is far better than their German cousins for many reasons. You decide.
