Meet Our Dogs

Our dogs are a part of our family and we love sharing them with people!

Our Miniature American Shepherds get the best care we can provide! Our dogs live in the house with us, get daily one-on-one special time with their people, daily mental stimulation and exercise, and we train almost every day of the week. Our dogs go out to our barn with us when we feed or are teaching riding lessons, they are used as demo dogs when we teach training classes, run errands with us, and snuggle on the couch. Each dog is treated as their own individual and we strive to meet that individual dog’s particular needs. All dogs are kept up to date on vaccinations and veterinary care. We feed Purina Pro Plan Sport and keep our dogs at a healthy weight. They get chiropractic adjustments and sports massage therapy as needed. 

All of our dogs are genetically tested against diseases recommended by the breed club which include:

~Collie Eye Anomaly (CEA)

~Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)

~Hereditary Cataracts (HC)

~Hyperuricosuria (HU)

~Intestinal Cobalamin Malabsorption

~Multifocal Retinopathy 1

~Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)

~Chondrodystrophy (CDDY and IVDD)

 

Our dogs must also pass OFA (hips, patellas, elbows) and yearly eye (CAER) certifications before they have a litter of puppies.
