Conveniently located in Northern California

These are some of our past puppies. They come well handled and loved by our 7 children and they are introduced to many of the other 4 legged friends here on our ranch.

Welcome to Tried and True Aussies

We are Matt and Rebecca Luedecke, a Christian homeschool family.

We breed AKC and ASCA Australian Shepherds as a family

on our small ranch with our horses, cow, chickens and cats.

We love Aussie's intelligence, their affection, their loyalty and their energy.

We strive to produce puppies that keep to the breed standard.

We socialize our puppies with children, adults and other animals.

We hope you enjoy our website and that you will visit often.

We are offering training for those who would like to get some extra training for their puppy or adult dog. Olivia has completed all of the levels in the Recallers program with dog trainer Susan Garrett. She has been applying her knowledge of positive reinforcement training for us. She and her dog, Maple, got their Canine Good Citizen title and we hope to move on to working with Canines for Christ. Natalie has been doing positive reinforcement training for us for many years and has the pleasure of working with some of our puppies on an on-going basis. If you would like some training help on a drop in basis or if you would like to sign up for a board and train please email us at

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Our daughter, Pearl, is our Tried and True photographer. She has done an online photography course with a professional photographer, a one week intensive in upstate New York as well as working for us and other local clients, honing her skills.

It is with heavy hearts that we had to say goodbye to our beloved Ava! She brought so much joy to all of us, but especially to Olivia! They were two peas in a pod and had so many adventures together from goofing around to agility to being in a print ad campaign for Thermos, Ava could do it all. She will be dearly missed, but we are so grateful for the time we had with her!!  Forever in our hearts...💕
