Prefix : ALFOXTON (Australian Shepherd)
We hold 3-4 Meet & Greet Information Days a year. These are for the public to meet a variety of adults dogs and learn more about Aussies. This helps see if this breed will suit your lifestyle. Invites advertised on our Facebook Page
Alfoxton Dog Centre has run training classes since 1993. We understand how important it is to have dogs with the right temperaments to fit into our human society. Commenced breeding in 1984 and since then we have developed an intensive Puppy Enrichment Program (ref website for info). By the time our pups go to homes they are experienced in car travel, visiting outside homes as well as exploring around our farm. Family visits are encouraged weekly to start the bond with their pups at 3 weeks of age, even attending puppy classes here from 5 weeks old.
Our breeding dogs are fully involved in family life and work out in the Socialising Groups and Workshops. Even with 30 years of breeding experience (initially GSD now Aussies) we still prefer to only breed perhaps 3 litters a year - this allows us to enjoy the process of working with dogs and raising our pups.
We are also very proud to have all breeding dogs scored for Hip and Elbow as well as conducting DNA tests for MDR1, NBT, PRA, CEA and HC and any new tests as becomes available.
