Prefix : ALFOXTON (Australian Shepherd)
Covid UPDATE - No litters are expected until mid 2021
Meet & Greets days are normally held a few times a year. We hope to resume these at end of 2020.
These are for the public to visit and learn more about Aussies and to see if this breed will suit your lifestyle.
Alfoxton Dog Centre has been running dog training since 1993. We understanding how important it is to have dogs with the right temperaments to fit into our human society. In our breeding program 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 and Sports Workshops. Even with 30 years of breeding experience (initially GSD now Aussies) we still prefer to only breed 2 or 3 litters a year - this allows us to enjoy the process of working with our 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.
