We only breed from Aussies who have full vet checks, DNA tested, excellent hip and elbow scores, brilliant temperaments and are truly representative of this wonderful breed. Our dogs are companions and much loved best friends! We place a number of our dogs in family homes until they are used for breeding to allow them to do what they do best, be family pets. They come home to us for whelping in a safe environment.
Our dogs are allowed to be dogs, run in parks, join in playdates, swim at the beach and be loved by children and their foster families. Aussies need the stimulation that large open spaces provide and the socialisation that comes with various external stimuli. Our dogs interact, not just with other dogs and their immediate foster family, but also with other children, the elderly, the community and extended family in those environments. Many of our dogs have gone on to become government approved assistance dogs working in nursing homes and with special needs adults and children. We are understandably proud of our focus on temperament.
We do not support early desexing of puppies due to the inherent physical problems that creates. (see current literature on our facebook page).
Please check out our facebook page Avonyon Australian Shepherds ! We also run and support a Western Australian Avonyon Australian Shepherd Club with over 300 members where playdates are organised and photos and information shared.
