My commitment to you and to this breed is to strive to consistantly produce the best example of the australian shepherd. If consistancy of quality is the goal, then it is important to begin with the best. Over time, I have found that the only way to assure this is with a "hands on" daily program. My dogs are not kenneled and each and every night at least two are in with me. This allows me to spend a good amount of "one on one" time with them. I have commited to only genetically clean lines, the best in conformation and the most even and kind of temperaments. If a prospective breeding dog fails any of the genetic testing or shows conformational or temperament faults, I do not use them in my program. Sometimes this has been a heart breaking decision...but always the right one.
