Back in the day when solid black German Shepherds were considered to be rare

Macklin is now situated in South Australia on a 250-acre property where our Shepherds enjoy the fresh country air and lots of room to run. Macklin Shepherds we take pride in our dogs having fantastic temperaments.

They are all healthy, happy, trustworthy & reliable. Only dogs that have been Hip & Elbow Scored and temperament tested are used in our breeding program & only dogs with results better than the recommended acceptable grading are bred from.

Specialising in Solid Black German Shepherd Long coats for family companions. For more information see our about us page. We also have a professional dog trainer on call here in South Australia for training or professional advice regarding your Macklin dog.


Finally good news, as of January 2012 The Australian National Kennel Control is allowing the Long Coat German Shepherd to be shown. So you will now have a choice to show your beautiful Long Coat puppy if you wish. Their beautiful coat is no longer classed as a fault as it has been in the past.

We are the first in Australia to own and show the Solid Black Long Stock Coat.
