We do not take breeding lightly. When we breed, we breed for ourselves first and foremost with the intention of keeping a puppy from the litter. We do not breed to simply produce puppies. We take great pride in our puppies and carefully screen all potential future homes. Aussies are a 12-15 year commitment and as a breeder it is our responsibility to place each puppy in the right home. When placing puppies we determine each individual puppy's placement according to the specific puppy's temperament, goals for the puppy, lifestyle of the owner and experience with the breed. We do NOT allow buyers to choose which puppy they would like from the litter, this often leads to a poor match between dog and owner. Puppies are not placed based strictly on color or gender, and although we will try our best to accommodate, temperament is the most important factor when placing companion puppies. While we accept color and gender preferences, we do not place a puppy based on these attributes alone. Each puppy is matched to the home that we feel will best fit that individual puppy and the goals you have for your new family member.When matching puppies with owners we do not begin making final decisions about which homes individual puppies go to until 8-9 weeks of age. This is so overall health, temperament, structure, and movement can be clearly evaluated.
Our dogs are not bred prior to two years of age so that they have completed full genetic health testing, eye CAERs and have passing OFA hips and elbows. Each litter is planned in the best interest of the breed, our dogs are bred to breed standard and each breeding is carefully thought out taking pedigree, temperament and overall health into consideration. Large amounts of research, time and money are put into each and every litter. Our puppies are raised following the Puppy Culture protocol, the gold standard for puppy rearing. Puppies are priced at $2,500 and come vet checked with first shots and eyes cleared by a board certified canine ophthalmologist prior to being placed in their new homes. We do not charge extra for coat color, eye color, or sex as all of the puppies in a litter are raised and cared for exactly the same.
Touché X Isla Repeat Litter
Isla welcomed 5 puppies on Friday June 18th. 1 black tri male, 1 black tri female and 3 blue merle females. All puppies reserved at this time.
We loved our 2020 Touché x Isla litter so much that we have decided to repeat the breeding. Isla has been bred to Touché for a litter due June 16th. Preference will be given to show and performance homes for this much anticipated repeat cross. Black tri color and blue merles expected. Puppies from the first cross are excelling in conformation, agility, herding and trick work. The first cross produced puppies with excellent structure, drive, biddability and great temperaments.

Rope X Siren
Siren will be bred to Iron Rose Hang 'Em High "Rope" via frozen semen. Rope is a red tri son of HOF WTCH Ad Astra Magnum Force RTDcs PATDcs GS-O RS-O. This is the last available breeding to Rope and we are so thankful to Tina Bauhs of Iron Rose Australian Shepherds for allowing us to use it on Siren. Puppies from this litter should be extremely versatile and phenomenal upper level performance prospects. Black tris and blue merles expected. Experienced performance tilting homes only.
