Prefix : ALFOXTON (Australian Shepherd)
With over 25 years experience running Alfoxton Dog Centre, we have a deep understanding of how important it is to have dogs with the right temperaments to fit into our human society. Hence we have developed an intensive Puppy Enrichment Program (see 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. Families are encouraged weekly to start the bond with their pups at 3 weeks of age, even attending group puppy classes here from 5 weeks of age.
Our breeding dogs are fully involved with their families and even with nearly 30 years of breeding experience, (initially with GSD now the 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 our breeding stock 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.
