DESCRIPTION: We have been breeding and training registered Australian Shepherds since the 1990’s. We like to train and trial our dogs before breeding them to make sure they have all the instinct, confidence on stock and inner drive to work that we look for in our dogs. We breed 2 to 3 litters a year and keep several pups. We then breed the pup with the most amount of natural herding ability. Our goal is to produce a structurally sound, confident dog that has the natural ability to work stock with a minimum amount of training. Natural ability includes keeping his stock gathered and moving in a controlled manner, having a strong desire to work, and having the confidence and quite power to move stock without unnecessary force.

Neal has trained and trialed Australian Shepherds since 1988 and is an approved ASCA stockdog judge. Our Australian Shepherd, WTCH Tacoma Sandman, PATDcs, RTDcs, RDX placed in the top ten at the ASCA finals competition from 1992 until he retired in 1997. Sandman was also the first dog to ever receive the post-advanced titles on sheep and cattle with ASCA and has multiple High in Trial Awards. Judy has trained, trialed and earned Working Trial Championships (WTCH) on Australian Shepherds, Australian Kelpies and Border Collies. Judy has weekly classes for most herding breeds at Beret Farms for both handler and dog and also does occasional boarding and training for ranchers. Anyone interested in stockdog training is encouraged to email us at deshazo@hughes.net or call 936-931-9464.

The DeShazo’s have trialed in ASCA and AHBA trials. Neal is the Chair of the newly formed Australian Shepherd Trialing Association (ASTA) which holds “points and time” trials.(NOT affiliated with ASCA).
