BRIARBROOK AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS SETTING THE STANDARDS BY WHICH OTHERS ARE JUDGED

 

Briarbrook Kennel was founded in 1970. We have been very active in the sport of dogs over the past 40  years. Briarbrook has set the records by which others are judged. One of our first great dogs  was CH Fieldmasters Three Ring Circus. Nearly every dog that Briarbrook owns today can be traced back to  CH  Fieldmasters Three Ring Circus.

CH Fieldmasters Three Ring Circus was a leading sire (asca) of his day. One of his Sons CH Fieldmasters Blue Isle Barnstormer surpassed  his sire  and became  the leading sire (asca) Barnstormer was Best of Breed at the 1983 asca National specialty. Barnstormer and his full brother Ch   Briarbrooks Coat of Arms can be found in many of  our pedigrees today .Both Barnstormer and Three Ring Circus had very successful show careers however (asca) did not  keep records of the Top dogs of the year  at  that point .( from 76 thru 87)..asca started keeping records on top dogs in1988.
