Welcome at "Pleistozaen" Australian Cattle Dogs!
is a small kennel located in the northwest of Vienna, Austria. My name is
Viktoria Kastner and I have scientific education as a biologist and zoologist.
I try to use this knowlege in my breeding program with special emphasis
on heredity and population genetics.
in my kennel are very likely to be good working dogs, suitable for any
kind of dogsport but neither suitable for a life as a couch potatoe nor
as a kenneldog.
If you are
interested in a puppy or if you want to know more about Australian Cattle
Dogs or my breeding program, please contact me via e-mail

My aim is to breed sound and healthy Australian Cattle Dogs with all anatomical and behavioural traits of a working dog. My ideal Australian Cattle Dog should resemble a "small, thickset Dingo", should be highly intelligent, very trainable, physically endurant and persistent in doing her job.
To improve their health dam and puppies are fed on a fresh diet (BARF) and not on commercial dog food. Puppies will go to their new homes very well socialised, dewormed, adequatly vaccinated, microchipped and BEAR-tested. They will get ÖKV/FCI papers and an European Pet Passport.
I judge population genetics very important in keeping a breed healthy as a population and therefore aim for offspring with a broad genetical background. I try to reduce gene loss in my breeding program and therefore I do no inbreeding or line breeding.
