Welcome to our small-scale breeding operation nestled in the heart of Virginia! We're dedicated to the meticulous preservation and improvement of our beloved breeds, the Australian Shepherd and Miniature American Shepherd. Unlike some breeders, we don't breed doodles or any mixed breeds. Instead, we carefully select pairings to enhance desirable traits and ensure the betterment of both our dogs and the breed as a whole.
From the moment they're born, our puppies receive individualized care and attention using Puppy Culture neurobehavioral techniques. This early socialization lays the foundation for well-rounded and resilient dogs. At day 49, we administer the Volhard temperament test to assess each puppy's temperament and personality. This helps us match them with the perfect family or owner based on compatibility and suitability.
Our dedication to preserving breed standards is evident in our active participation in local and national dog shows. We're proud members of the Old Dominion Australian Shepherd Association, with Karen serving as the current vice president after many years as secretary. Our involvement in the breed community ensures that we stay informed and connected, continuously striving to uphold and improve the breed's standards.
While most of our puppies are placed in loving pet homes, we occasionally have show-quality puppies available to approved homes. If you're interested in a show puppy or simply want to learn more about our breeding program, please don't hesitate to reach out to us through the contact form on our website.
Thank you for considering us for your next furry family member. We look forward to helping you find the perfect match!
