Vonpeta Kennels were established in 1973 by Peter Damarell. It was operated by Jane Pike and Peter who are members of the Dogs SA and the German Shepherd Dog Club of South Australia until December 2019. From January 2020 breeding operations reverted back to Peter due to restrictions that have been placed on the breed by the GSDCA to gain Breed Survey status.
The most famous litter bred by the kennel is without doubt the Vonpeta P Litter. From this litter there were 5 Australian Champions, 4 Excellent Graded animals and a National Class winner - Vonpeta Playful Prince, Pollyanna, Pinnacle, Panache and Phydeaux. The most famous individual animal bred by Vonpeta is Grand Ch Vonpeta Taykall By Storm A Z Class I Multi Excellent with numerous Best in Show awards in both the specialty and all breeds rings and the Gold Medal at the 2008 National. Not far behind her is her grand mother Ch Vonpeta Eva A Z Class I and her nephew Supreme Champion Vonpeta Ugottabekidding AZ Class I.
Jane, even though no longer involved in breeding, became an ANKC Group 5 Working Dog Judge in 2006 and successfully completed the GSDC of A Judges Extension course early 2009. To date Jane has judged specialty shows in all States of Australia and both North and South islands in New Zealand and she was awarded Breed Surveyor status in July 2012.
