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 more about genetic health.
I also have enjoyed Obedience and Handling classes for the last 14 years,
Enjoy training as much as any other part of dog companionship.
As our 4 young Children grow up, we have become involved with the 4H program. Together with the kids we are training to Compete in Rally'O, Obedience and Agility.
I am always learning, and as my knowledge grows, my passion for Aussies and the world of Purebred Dog Sports only strengthens.
