Additional Information:

Our puppies parents are fully health tested.  Genetic disease panels are completed - both Essential and Supplemental full panels are completed with Paw Print Genetics.  OFA Hip and Elbow testing are completed at the age of 2.  Annual CAER eye examinations are completed by a certified canine ophthalmologist.  After completing full health testing, our dogs have been issued OFA CHIC numbers certifying all breed applicable health testing has been completed.

Our puppies make their first visit to our veterinarian when their dewclaws are removed and tails docked around 3 days of age.   Shortly after this visit, we begin Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) on the puppies following the Puppy Culture methods and continue through the remaining weeks with socialization and enrichment activities that includes exposing them to many sights, sounds, and environments.  

Our puppies are raised in climate controlled nurseries with a camera system so we can keep a careful watch over mom and pups when we have to step away.

Our litter box and play pen are kept immaculately clean which makes potty training much easier.  Here are a few of the extra things that we work on with the puppies:   riding in a car, becoming familiar with household noises, rebounding from startling noises, socializing with other animals and strangers, experiencing grooming and bathing, and much more!

After weaning, the puppies are placed full time on Purina Pro Plan Puppy with scheduled feedings that makes potty training a lot easier.  We like to ensure that each puppy is getting their share and also want to maintain healthy weights.  They are administered dewormers regularly.  At 7 weeks old, they are started on Interceptor Plus, a heart worm preventative that includes parasite control, and receive their first vaccination series.  Puppies are taken to our veterinarian for a final examination just a few days before going home to their new families to ensure that they are in excellent health.

We prepay our puppies' AKC registration and also microchip our puppies with prepaid lifetime enrollment with AKC Reunite.  This is our gift to families to make sure their puppies have the best possible chance of being reunited with their families in case they ever become lost.

Puppies are available to join their new families at 8 weeks of age, no sooner.  We love for our families to come pick up their puppy. If this is not possible, we may be able to assist with meeting you part way.  We do not fly our puppies.  Many of our families fly into the Kansas City airport and then drive home.  Australian Shepherd puppies are too large to be shipped in cabin.

We prefer our placed puppies live inside with you and are provided with a large play area for daily exercise.  We also desire that our puppies are provided basic obedience classes as it provides a great training foundation and simply polishes off your puppy.
