These are the 4 main tests recommended on the ASHGI protocol site. We breed for dogs that are friendly, biddable and social, moderate energy level, not hyper, with nice substantial build and type. Our dogs get along with each other and are good in public and with our visitors. ************* Whether you are looking for an Aussies for a companion or even for show, it pays to choose carefully and get the best you can. Find a breeder you enjoy working with as they will be your source for advice as you raise your puppy. We take our role as stewards of this amazing breed quite seriously. We are not just breeding to crank out pups to sell, but plan each breeding with the goal of correcting minor faults and maintaining the essence and quality of the lines we have. For us it's quality over quantity. Our Aussies have their health clearances, including CERF (eyes) cleared annually, the Hereditary Cataract test for the most common form of hereditary cataracts (HSF4), MDR1 testing and OFA (hips, elbows) rated at 2 yrs of age. We also do OFA hip prelims at about a year of age. This it ensure we've done all we can to produce healthy, sound puppies. We also evaluate the structure and breed type (how well the dog meets the written breed standard) and most of all assess the temperament, since that is what affects the day to day life with the dog. All my dogs and puppies are available to approved homes only. Our dogs are AKC or AKC/ASCA registered. Most pups sold as companions with limited registration and spay/neuter agreement. Full registration for show/breeding on VERY limited basis, to experienced and approved homes only. Puppies come with AKC or AKC/ASCA papers, pedigree, premium food, toys, pictures of parents and pups since birth, copies of the parents health test results, and info on Aussies and general puppy care. We also have an extensive health guarantee. They are current on vaccinations, wormings and are started on Interceptor for heartworm prevention. Pups are born inside and undergo the Bio-Sensor program to maxmimize potential. We feed a premium diet of human grade raw food and supplements, and premium dry food and put a lot of thought, care and passion into everything we do with our dogs. I strongly prefer pups are picked up in person so I can meet you and introduce you to our dogs. If the puppy must be shipped, it is usually about $350 extra. We start crate and potty training, and we take the pups on several car rides before they leave. We also start them on grooming training. We want them to have appropriate, caring, permanent homes once they leave us. We keep a smaller number of dogs so each dog gets plenty of attention daily. We get to know each of our pups very well too, so we can help match you with a puppy with the right temperament. We reserve the right to refuse sale of a pup or dog. I am starting a waiting list and taking deposits to hold your place in line to choose a pup. Check out my website at http://qualityaussies.webs.com/ for so much more information on the breed. THE PICTURE OF THE 8 WEEK OLD PUPPY IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT LUKE WILL LOOK LIKE. THAT PUPPY IS HIS UNCLE.
