Update May 03, 2020
Karma has been bred to Fabio! Puppies are expected to arrive mid June and would be ready to go to their new homes mid August. Puppies will be CKC registered in the 16-20" height range (measured from ground to top of shoulder). Their previous litter all went to families and companion homes but some definitely have the potential to compete in agility and other dog sports. Karma has medium energy levels with high toy drive. She has focus, drive and endurance when it comes to disc or any game but is otherwise calm with a stable temperament. Fabio is a goofball who will do anything just to get attention and love. He has medium energy levels and medium toy drive and is highly food motivated. Both are wonderful with our young kids. Aussies make amazing family dogs with formal training classes and lots of positive socialization. We are hopeful social distancing will be a thing of the past and classes will be back up and running by the time our puppies go to their new homes!
Welcome to our website! We are a small breeder of quality, health tested Australian Shepherds in near Stony Plain, Alberta, just west of Edmonton. Our Aussies are a part of our family and puppies are raised in our home with our young children.
Our Aussies are fully OFA and genetically tested. Hip/Elbow & Eye testing as well as full panel genetic testing through Paw Print Genetics. We are proud of the health of our Aussies and pleased to be able to pass those genetics down to their offspring and offer a health and genetic guarantee. Please visit our Boys & Girls pages for more details on the parents of our litters.
Some info about our puppies and what is included:
Our puppies are priced between $1500 - $2500 for limited registration and $2000 - $3000 for full registration (breeding rights) to approved performance and/or breeding programs. We are always willing to mentor those wanting to raise Aussies. For those hoping for a show quality puppy, you are more than welcome to come to their Conformation evaluations at 8 weeks old.
We do not dock our puppies, they will keep their beautiful tails and dewclaws.
We do Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) and follow the Puppy Culture program in raising our pups which helps to create smarter, easier to train, confident puppies already well started in their training and socialization which makes bringing home a new puppy much easier for our puppy owners.
Puppies start using litter to potty at 3 weeks old and are going outdoors by 5-6 weeks (weather permitting) to help facilitate potty training in their new homes.
Crate training, clicker training and lots of positive socialization is done with other animals, strangers of all sizes and appearance, kids car rides and much more.
We feed our dogs raw and wean our puppies to raw as well. Homes wanting to feed kibble we recommend Firstmate small bite grain free varieties (no legumes).
By 8 weeks they will have a thorough vet exam, be microchipped, dewormed and vaccinated. We offer a health guarantee including a lifetime guarantee for the many hereditary diseases/conditions known to occur in Australian Shepherds. Puppy home packs include food, toys, leash, collar & blanket smelling like mom & litter mates as well as their vet record and health certificate, socialization checklist and helpful information in continuing their crate, leash, clicker and potty training. Puppies come home with a copy of their CKC litter registration, the Registration Certificates will be mailed.
We offer advice and support with any issues you may have over the lifetime of your puppy, from an upset tummy to training questions and we love to receive frequent updates from our puppy families!
We do offer shipping via Westjet (at most it is $260) but if you're able to fly to YEG to pick up your puppy we are happy to bring your puppy to the airport before your return flight. We will be offering free delivery to Calgary and the Kootenays mid August.
I am willing to fly puppies on direct flights only to the US for the cost of return flight, no extra fees.
So far our pups have flown to Inuvik, Los Angeles, San Francisco Victoria and Vancouver.
We take lots of videos and post to our FB page so you can follow the growth and milestones of each litter. Puppies are ready to go their new homes by 8/9 weeks old. Any leery of placing a deposit to reserve a puppy can be assured we are not a puppy mill, our puppies are raised in our home and adults are constantly in and out of the house and have large fenced areas to play outdoors. We welcome Facetime or messenger video chat to meet us and the puppies and their sire & dam. We do not allow visitors in our home until after puppies first vaccination.
Please fill out our Puppy Questionnaire on our Contact page to be added to our waitlist for future litters. Puppies we are not holding back for our program will be available to be reserved ($500 deposit which is non refundable but transferable to another litter before 6 weeks of age)
