Our aim is to preserve the "Heart & Soul" of the Australian Shepherd for future generations to enjoy. Breeding with Type, Temperament and Versatility in mind, striving for mental, structural and genetic soundness.

All our dogs used for breeding will have been hip scored and eye tested by qualified specialised veterinarians in their respective fields prior to any mating taking place. When future tests become available these tests will be carried out as well. Physical and genetic tests are tools used by breeders to match weaknesses and strengths in the dogs and bitches that they use. Our bitches whelp inside our house and puppies receive daily human socialisation.

No decision on the future owner of any pup will be made until they reach 8 weeks of age. This is because puppies change so much from birth and it is not until 8 weeks that you truly know what the adult might be like. Temperament, structure, movement, mouths, testicles (for boys) etc all go into deciding if a puppy might have what it takes to be a show dog or future breeding animal, colour and sex have very little to do with it.

Only after everything has been taken into account can we match a puppy to a prospective owner. The most important thing is that the puppy fits into your family and the activities you are interested in. All puppies will leave with a comprehensive information pack (see more details on the litter page). Remember we are always available for any questions you have, for the life of your pet.

We want all our puppies to go to loving homes as valuable companions and pets. Only the very best of our litters will be registered for showing and breeding potential. The only difference is that main registered puppies can have offspring registered. Both can do any sport you are interested in... The sky is the limit.

We believe all aspects of the breed are important, see the breed standard for more information. It is extremely difficult to order our priorities as they are all so intertwined. Type, I believe is the most important aspect. Without type you don't have an Australian Shepherd.

Understand that when I say type, I mean more than just looks, type to me means conforming to the breed standard, and that includes "well balanced, slightly longer than tall of medium size and bone", "animated, lithe and agile, solid and muscular without cloddiness", "docked or natural bobbed tail", "intelligent working dog of strong herding and guarding instincts", "good natured, seldom quarrelsome", "smooth, free and easy gait". So you see, type is composed of temperament, health, and movement.

I conduct all breedings on the basis of improving the breed, hoping to keep something for myself, and I choose stud dogs with the aim to do the best I can to improve my bitch, not based on producing the current colour of choice.
