|We are located in our own little valley on 38 acres in Temecula. My mom started in Shelties in the 60’s, and I bred my first litter 30 years ago. Our dogs are health tested, and certified by OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) for hip dysplasia, patella luxation, elbow dysplasia and eyes. We also test for auto immune thyroiditis. Our dogs are excelling in the Obedience, Agility, Rally, Herding and Conformation rings. We selectively breed for dogs that are willing, able and happy to be with their owners. Each breeding is thoughtfully done, taking into consideration each dogs temperment, strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of their ancestors, in order to produce the best possible outcome.
Our dogs are family members first. They are raised in our home, on our ranch, around other dogs, horses, and livestock. They accompany us on road trips, and camping. Puppies are started with ENS (Early Neurological Stimulation) at just a few days old. They are raised with noisy toys, puppy “jungle gym” and mental stimulation. This is done to get them used to using their minds, working things out and so they learn that noises etc aren’t scary!
We are members of the ASSA (American Shetland Sheepdog Association) and our dogs are registered with the AKC, some are double registered with CKC and even triple registered with UKC. We actively compete in Agility, Conformation and Obedience. We have agility champion and titled dogs. Obedience dogs that have been on Top Dog teams and are titled. We have American, Canadian and UKC conformation Champion dogs.
