Our litters are well thought out and researched. Our goal is to combine sound structure with drive and biddability.
Proper temperaments are very important.  We strive to breed Australian Shepherds that have good work ethic, but
are great companions in the home. Health is of utmost priority, all of our sires and dams are screened for health
problems and have OFA testing done. Pedigrees are very important, and we strive to find the cleanest pedigrees
(free from epilepsy and cancer).  For this reason, homes will be carefully screened. Our hope is to place all
puppies in a home where they are pets first and teammates second. Performance homes will receive priority.

Puppies will start their life with Early Neurological Stimulation. They will be exposed to many sights and  sounds
throughout their weeks with me. We also follow Puppy Culture program.  Puppies are exposed to agility and
obedience equipment, ducks and sheep. Puppies are also exposed to airplanes, fireworks, gunshots,and  other
loud and obnoxious noises. We expose them to "walkabouts" around our 8 acre farm, where they come in contact
with all types of animals. We make sure they meet multiple people during their time with us, including children.

We do herding instinct testing at 7 and 8 weeks. We also do barn hunt instinct testing. We use the Volhard
temperament testing. They will go home having received CERF exams, veterinarian health exams, their first set of
vaccines, fecal float testing, microchip, and dewormings. We strive to send home a well adjusted and healthy

Prices for puppies are $1500.00. Conformation/breeding prospects are done by private contract. Almost all of our
intact puppies leave on a co-own, which may be lifted once health testing and contractual obligation is fulfilled.  
Please do not ask for a puppy according to color. I strive to match the right puppy with the right home. While new
owner's preferences are taken into account, there are many factors I look at when placing a puppy.

Proven performance homes will receive a discounted price.
