Australian Shepherd Breeder - Dogs - VIC : Perfect Pets Profile
Ausdreaming is a small kennel situated in Somerville. We bought our first Aussie in 2005. Mazasuka Karnack (Hitch) was a blue merle and he was everything that we believed that the breed should be, intelligent, good temperament, strong instincts and a great on/off switch. When our poodle of 14 years was starting to feel his age, we knew that we would like another dog that would compliment our lifestyle. Debra is the nerdy type who thinks that a good day is a day spent on the computer or reading a book, whereas Martin likes to be active and doing things. We spent a year researching all of the breeds to find if we could come up with a good match for both of us...
Once we decided that an Aussie was the dog for us, we surfed the internet looking at different breeders in Australia and all over the world, asking questions, sometimes with good results and other times with a cold silence. We disregarded the breeders who made us feel uncomfortable and worked with the breeders who offered advice and spoke openly about the breed and their dogs.
AusDreaming Kennels carries out the Volhard Temperament Test on each pup at the age of 6 weeks. From the results of this test we are able to ascertain what the temperament of the puppy will be now and in the future
