Tried and True

It all started with True, our first aussie. We loved the breed so much that we wanted to share it with others.

We are located in beautiful Northern California about an hour north of San Francisco. We raise our animals on our little 4 acre ranch. Here our dogs get to experience life with chickens, goats, horses, a cat and other dogs. They also get to grow up being handled by us and our 7 children. My son loved playing frisbee with True and Glory is now doing a great job training Walty and Beatrice to play frisbee.

​As fairly new breeders we are always trying to learn more about the breed and good breeding practices. We want to provide puppies that make great companions and are true to the Australian Shepherd Breed Standard. We keep up current membership in ASCA and keep current in the AKC and we have membership in MASCA. We hope to continue to better the breed and to keep learning as we are go. 

We are blessed to be doing this as a family. We couldn't do it without our children because they spend so much of the time socializing the pups. It has been a joy to be able to provide wonderful companions for people and families in our area. We love to stay in contact and see the dogs as they grow. We enjoy the opportunity to meet so many people and to make new friends.

The Kids
We work as a family to breed and raise Aussie puppies here on our little ranch. We homeschool our 7 children and we all enjoy working together. Our children have become interested in agility and conformation, so we hope to have more news of this in the future. 

The puppies in our litters will come to you having already been loved and played with by children every day. We find that this makes for very happy puppies and happy kids!
