ALL ABOUT US
We are passionate about dogs! Everything we do is to make sure we produce the most emotionally stable, healthy, happy companions possible. Dogs are mankind's best friend, capable of everything from helping manage livestock, to retrieving hunted fowl, to performing essential tasks to mitigate disabilities, to being a child's most beloved cuddle buddy. Because all of those things are so important and everyone's needs and preferences are different, we focus on producing dogs that can perform all these roles and more, and we help you pick the best puppy for YOU!
Our puppies are raised in our home. We do temperament testing and use a combination of socialization protocols from Puppy Culture, Baxter & Bella, and Avidog. By the time they go home, our puppies have been started on crate training, potty training, and have had lots of socializing with little children and exposure to household noises.
HOW DO WE RAISE OUR PUPPIES?
We use a combination of socialization protocols from Puppy Culture, Baxter & Bella, and Avidog, which ensures that the puppies can handle stress and are well socialized. We have 4 children and several adult dogs that help us make sure the puppies are well accustomed to many things.
DO WE DOCK TAILS?
Docking is done on a case-by-case basis depending on the purpose of the litter. We do often have Aussiedoodles and Aussies with natural bob-tails. If you have a tail preference, let us know prior to the 3rd day of the puppy's life, OR select a puppy that meets your tail preference.
DO WE REMOVE DEW CLAWS?
Because research shows that removing dew claws increases arthritis rates and the dew claws are important for shock absorption and traction for active dogs, we do not remove regular front dew claws. If we ever encounter a dangly dew claw or rear dews, those will be removed within the first 3 days of life. Dew claws are extremely easy to care for; they just need to be clipped every now and then, a process which takes 30 seconds on a dog who is even a little bit accustomed to it.
HOW DO PUPPY PICKS WORK?
When you decide you are interested in a puppy from us, we'll correspond about what specific traits you're looking for in a puppy. You may place a deposit on either a specific puppy or on a certain sex/color. (If there is more than one of the same sex and color, we do individual selections after their personalities start to show. If there is only one of a certain sex and color, that puppy may be reserved individually.)
