Answer: I have been breeding since 2001. I started with the Standard Australian Shepherd and just love the breed. Then I found that they came in a smaller packages.

I was even more in love, brains, loyalty, athletic, hardy, and easy to train, all wrapped in a little package that you can easily take anywhere.
How do you socialize your puppies?
Answer: It is very important that puppies are properly socialized so they become well-adjusted dogs. I use the Puppy Culture Program. Puppies have been very well socialized around people, other dogs, children, and are very comfortable with a household environment. Parents and puppies are all house dogs. So puppies are use to the hustle and bussel of a home. I'm a firm believer that early socialization will help the puppy better adjust to new surroundings and life with you after you bring him / her home.
When will you be able to take the puppy home?
Answer: Puppies are able to go home at 8 wks if you are picking up or meeting me. If puppy is being flown to his / her destination and you are picking up at the airport, they will be 9 - 10 wks (depending on airline regulations)
