Planned for Spring 2020, we be breeding CH Empyrean's On A Lark At CopperRidge and her daughter, GCHB Bayberry Thru The Looking Glass At Empyrean CGC. These litters will be co-bred with Empyrean Aussies. We are still on the stud dog search, but I will update this page once final decisions have been made! Companion puppies might be available from these litters - feel free to contact me for more information.
Thank you for your interest in one of our puppies! We do not breed often so if we do not have litter plans listed on our website, feel free to contact me and I can refer you to a breeder near you who might have something available. If you would like to be put on a waiting list for a future litter from us, or receive a puppy questionnaire, you may e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our puppies are available to approved companion homes only, and strictly on spay/neuter contracts. We do not sell puppies with breeding rights. Puppies are not placed based strictly on color/gender, and although we will try our best to accommodate, temperament is the most important factor with for companion puppies! Puppy placements are not decided until 8 weeks of age after evaluations, and I prefer to keep puppies until 9-10 weeks of age before they go to their new families.
We raise our puppies in our home and they are our entire life for the time they are here. From the moment they are born, they are handled constantly and exposed to many different things. We get our puppies used to a grooming routine - they will have had their nails done weekly, and been bathed/blow dried multiple times before they go to their new homes. We choose to let mom decide when to wean her puppies, never forcing it, and wean them onto a combination of a properly balanced raw diet and kibble so that their new families may continue feeding whichever they prefer. Once they are old enough, we do a lot of socializing - as a group and individually. We do our best to send all our puppies to their new homes potty trained, crate trained, and leash trained.
Prior to going to their new homes, all of our puppies will have their first round of vaccinations. We choose to follow the Jeans Dodd's Protocol and preference is always given to homes that are willing to follow the same vaccine protocol.
I am happy to chat with anyone about our upcoming litters, or whether an Australian Shepherd might be for you, so you may always feel welcome to call or e-mail me! :) I do not answer calls from unknown numbers unless a voicemail is left so please keep that in mind.
