DESCRIPTION: My dogs are great companions, relaxed in the house, intense and ready for work when outside. I couldn’t run the ranch without them! Their daily chores include large pasture outruns and fetches for sheep or cattle, sorting, penning, doctoring. They have to be biddable, as sheep are gathered from the pasture with the cattle. They help sort ducks, chickens, and guineafowl into different pens. They have to listen, and figure out which animals are being moved or penned.

My goal is to breed dogs that preserve our Aussies’ working instincts. I expect mental and physical soundness-dogs that can meet our breed standard! I believe great stockdogs can also be great-looking and versatile. I look for biddability, natural working ability (rate, group, balance), and power. I want a strong work ethic—a dog that won’t stop until the job is done. I expect my dogs to do all the ranch chores and also be able to trial. Hips and eyes cleared on all breeding stock. DNA certified kennel. All my pups are guaranteed to work.
