At Piltainga our aim is to produce a Maremma Sheepdog that conforms to the authorized Standard has a temperament that enables the animal to successfully perform as a working dog, a show dog or a companion animal. We have recently imported a male from the United Kingdom; this dog is from an Italian bitch mated to the Italian dog that was Best of Breed at "Crufts" in 2007 and will be the mainstay of our breeding program in the immediate future.
Piltainga Twilight Blaze, Pet Assisted Therapy Dog at the Mater Children's Hospital, Brisbane:
"Another first for the breed, displaying the top quality breeding and temperaments of Piltainga Kennels dogs."
Piltainga was established in 1996 out of sheer necessity. As a breeder of Angora Goats we were losing an unacceptable number of animals to feral dogs and had tried all the normal means of control without success, so in desperation purchased a Maremma Bitch, "Bella"
We placed Bella with our goats and achieved immediate results, our losses to predators stopped completely and so started our association with this wonderful breed. Over the years we have owned and campaigned three Males and one Female to Grand Champion Status.

At this time we have two bitches and two dogs which constitute our breeding and showing team.
