We are Preservation Breeders
 From BC Canada

We strive to produce an all-around sound, moderate Aussie, able to be competitive in conformation and performance venues,  helpful around the farm, all while staying the intelligent, level headed, devoted family companion we so much  adore! 


My Story...
My Love for this breed started when I was just a young Child.

My Uncle Mark imported an Australian Shepherd back in the 80's.  My Parents were instantly impressed by Kola's Beauty and Intelligence and after a lot of begging, on my part they bought me My first Aussie from a breeder in California. 

Those Aussies set the bar for every dog we've had since. Not only were they intelligent and beautiful, but also excellent with children and protective of their home and family, 

they proved to us that Aussies are the complete package!

As an adult I bought an Aussie from a local man, selling his 1 year old neutered male...
Star struck by my luck I bought him no questions asked...
 I quickly learned that  this male had none of the characteristics my beloved childhood dogs had had. 

That became my motivation to become a breeder, little did I know then that that was just the beginning of a journey into the world of purebred dogs... 
 Showing Aussies in Conformation has been my main focus and has become an important part of demonstrating the quality of the Aussies I breed. 

 I have spent over a decade researching pedigrees, reading everything I can about conformation, temperaments, training, conditioning and judging, always seeking to understand the breed standard and learning about genetic health. 

I also have taken Obedience and Handling classes for the last 12 years, 
Enjoy training as much as any other part of dog companionship. 
As our 4 young Children grow up, I hope to have more time to Compete in Rally'O and Agility as well. 

I am always learning more about this breed and as my knowledge grows, my passion for Aussies only strengthens.
