Kia Ora, welcome to


New Zealand's leading and most trusted ethical White Swiss Shepherd breeder


Nature Background


Based in Whaingaroa- Raglan, Aotearoa- New Zealand.

We have been breeding White Shite Swiss Shepherds since 2010. 


Tanya is the driving force behind Pandora Kennels. She has over 35 years of experience in professional animal care, and a degree in animal welfare and behaviour. Furthermore, Tanya has over 16 years of experience with White Swiss Shepherd dogs, training, showing, and later breeding. Putting in immense effort in finding ways to improve the quality of the breed in New Zealand.

"Pandora kennels didn't sprout from wanting to make money by breeding puppies. I had wanted a White Swiss Shepherd for many years and when that finally happened, my love for them grew to the point of wanting to give other people the opportunity to have such an amazing animal as their best friend." The long coated White Swiss Shepherds weren't very common in New Zealand when Tanya started breeding. But most importantly she wanted to improve the temperament to a more friendly and trainable dog. To accomplish this goal, she imported dogs/new bloodlines from all over Europe and Australia.

This has made her one of the most trusted White Swiss Shepherd breeders not only in New Zealand, but breeders all over the world have bought puppies from Pandora Kennels (pedigree name: Pandorras) for their breeding programs. 


Kyra has inherited her mother's love and passion for animals, now working alongside her in Pandora Kennels. 

All her life, she has been around dogs, cats, horses, farm animals, and wildlife. Looking after them, playing with them, learning and admiring them. Which has naturally shaped her love and ways with animals.

She has grown up with White Swiss Shepherds doing agility and competing in obedience, rally-O, and conformation breed showing.

Now she has joined the Pandora team, looking after the dogs and puppies, doing puppy transport, and managing the website and social media of Pandora kennels.


Sheryl has joined the Pandora team in 2023. She has been around shepherds most of her life and brings lots of experience to the team.

One of our breeding females named TK, lives the good life with Sheryl and her husband Pete.
