Shetland Sheepdog Breeder - Dogs - Bunbury, WA : Perfect Pets Profile

At Kasingal Shetland Sheepdogs our focus is on:

- Solid temperament, outgoing natures and drive - puppies are raised using Puppy Culture & Avidog regimes.
- Sound health and construction.

Puppies Imprinting period opens at 3 weeks and closes at approx. 12 weeks, therefore, we will work with a puppy to provide the imprinting which is so important for performance during this critical period. One of the most important characteristics of imprinting is that the knowledge is retained for life.

Solid Foundation: By the time one of our puppies comes to your home they will have started basic toilet training, done baby recalls, walking on lead, socialisation with people and other animals, be used to being handled, introduced to novel items, sights and sounds, taught how to play and tug, basic retrieve, basic bite inhibition, used to different surfaces and textures, puppy sized tunnels/wobble boards/planks, things to climb in/on/over, things moving under foot, had car rides, ride on a blanket or in a box, play on balance discs and much, much more.

We use the Puppy Culture & Avidog protocols which produce amazingly resilient, confident, enrichment seeking puppies who go on to become well rounded, outgoing, operant dogs.

Our current team compete in Obedience, Rally, Tricks, Scent Work, Agility and the occasional show.

Our dogs are DNA tested for all genetic diseases, ophthalmologist tested and hip/elbow scored.
