We take Enormous Pride and Joy is raising our litters. Puppies are born and raised in our active family home. Puppies are handled from birth and we follow ENS procedures with our newborns:

Our pups are raised in enriched environments they are socialized and desensitized to everything and anything we can think of that will help them in their adults lives starting at a very young age. 

As of 2016, we are proud to add the "Puppy Culture" System for raising Super-Puppies. 
For more information on: Puppy Culture.  

We invest countless hours into raising our litters, we use tested techniques to use to ensure that our puppies will be the best they can be: happy, confident, super socialized individuals that will not be prone to stress and who by 8-9 weeks are ready for their new homes where their Families can continue to build on a solid foundation.  

Our Passion is placing the very best Aussie puppies into the very best of homes!

How our wait list and selection works: 

We do not take deposits and companion homes need to be aware that they are waiting for A Puppy, Not necessarily a specific color or sex. We do our best to fill a wish list, but given the nature of things, we are not able to make any promises. 

We put a tremendous effort into placing each puppy in the home that will suite them best, we have over 10 years of experience placing puppies with families and have had fantastic results. Puppy Buyers need to be patient with the process of selection and understand that we might not be able to tell them which pup is for them until after the 8 week mark. We ask you to be prepared to keep your hearts open till then so that we can work together to make the best selection possible for you and for our puppies.  

We love to include our future homes in the socialization process; we have always had at least two visits during 4-8 weeks of age. In the past we have hosted a puppy party for buyers to come and enjoy the pups on a sunny afternoon outdoors as well as individual visits.
