He loves the water and his life jacket. He kayaks and paddle boards and loves it. He gets in my kayak before we even leave to go to the lake.

We are head over heels for Benny. Such a sweet smart guy and so much fun to have around. Thanks for giving us such a great puppy!

Riker is such a joy to have in our family! As you can see by the picture here, he loves to go for rides on the mule. The neighbors smile and chuckle as he sits tall and proud. He likes to look out the front door as people come and go. Our neighbors had a baby so when they walk by he gets excited and wants to go see her! Riker is a very loyal dog, he follows us around the house, lays by us when he naps and only barks when someone rings the doorbell. Riker gets his exercise chasing the squirrels, fetching his toy fish and walks around the neighborhood. Riker is a well behaved companion.
Thank you! We will stay in touch.

Thank you so much for the picture of Link’s sire-so much fun to see! I can see where he gets his coat! I attached a couple pics of Link -one with him playing in the snow with his big jolly ball from this afternoon, and the other was from a trip Tim and I took late this fall up to Grand Marais for a weekend. We took Link along and the picture is from a hiking trip we took-in a light rain, so he was wet-but happy! He handled the trip really well-impressing all those he met along the way!
We are training in Minnetonka at the Cloud 9 School for dogs on Tuesday evenings since Paws Inn in New Germany has classes on Monday nights only- when I am teaching my own classes. We completed a level 2 class in mid-December, so we are enrolled in the level 3 class starting in January. He does excellent in a structured class -he shows his drive and aptitude for the work. Socially, he can still get over-excited when meeting people and wants to jump. We have been working hard on this and will see where we are at soon, as on January 10th I am taking him through his first Pet Partner Therapy Dog test. I am actually evaluating some teams that morning, and we are testing him as well since the opportunity is mine! I’ll let you know how things go. To be honest, it is early as he really needs more time to grow up yet, so I do not expect to pass. But- it will be good practice and I will learn much from the experience.
We will keep training as we both love it! Thank you for the nice Christmas card, also. I hope your Christmas Holiday was the best!

I just wanted to write to you on how Riley has been doing. It’s hard to believe he is almost 2 years old now, but he is growing up to be the absolute best dog someone could ask for. Thank you again for everything and I hope you and your family have a great Holiday season.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
Dan & Riley

It is Thanksgiving morning and as I’m throwing the ball and frisbee for Asher to retrieve, I marvel at the agile and funny dog he is. And as I think about how he makes us laugh and feel loved, I think of you. I am so very thankful for your willingness to entrust such an amazing fur ball to my family. We each love him so much, and although it’s been almost a year now, the daily joy he brings to our hearts has never worn off. And though it seems his first love is our soccer ball and chasing squirrels, we know he loves us too.
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving and we’re so excited to see the new litters you’ll be posting soon!

A few days after picking up Reggie from your place, his colors reminded us
of the snowy mountains and named him Aspen! He’s grown into such an amazing
dog for us and everywhere we go (Minnesota, Virginia, and now Washington)
people are always making comments on how gorgeous he is or how well behaved
he is! He is the fastest dog by far at the off leash-dog parks and he is
definitely still a momma’s boy, which I thank you for that! 🙂 Aspen is the
best traveling companion for us and has done way more than many dogs will do
in a lifetime: swimming in the Atlantic Ocean in North Carolina, visited
Philly, played in pools in DC, and hiked mountains in Montana and out here
near Seattle. And to think he’s only 2 years old!!

Hope all is well with you. I wanted to give you an update on Cora and thank you for the dedication you have with your dogs. It clearly shows in Cora, she never runs out of energy- usually a quick power nap after a long jog, the dog park, socializing and she’s ready to play again. She’s been keeping me incredibly busy and active, it’s often difficult to write a quick e-mail like this without her trying to learn how to type or get my attention.
She is incredibly intelligent as well, tries to walk herself, tricks me for treats, learns anything after a few treats, tries to help parallel park my car and currently learning to potty on the toilet since she often refuses the grass when it’s raining and hasn’t even seen snow yet. Hopefully soon helping me design the puppy potty toilet seat!(see attached pictures). She also never overeats which is great, luckily I haven’t had ants yet but she will hide treats in each corner of every room.
She is the most loving and social dog, famous in my neighborhood for bringing smiles and puppy kisses, literally to everyone’s faces. I feel like i’m on a date with a celebrity when I take her to restaurants and think I need to start charging for photos. She has made children instantly stop crying, stops on-coming traffic like we are a family of ducks when she’s in my arms and has made grumpy old men smile whom looked like they hadn’t in years.
I’m looking forward to many healthy and happy years with Cora.

I attached a picture from Sunday. We took the dogs to a restaurant that allows dogs on the patio, we typically try to find restaurants that allow this. It was a fun night.
Hope you are well.

Thank you so much!

I just took Nilly on her first vacation, and everywhere I went people would
stop me and tell me I have the most beautiful dog ever. I smile and say I’m
grateful that I got so lucky with such a sweet, well behaved dog from Sandy
I just wanted to say thanks again. This dog has more love and fun than she
knows what to do with.
Here are some photos of how grown up she is too!
Have a good one!

I just wanted to let you know that Ozzie is doing great and he is greatly loved. We took him camping last week and he loved it! I think he was sad when we came home. He is a very loving dog with a great temperament. Thank you for allowing him to become part of our family! I have attached some photos of Ozzie camping.
We wish you the best.

My name is Nancy W, my son Chris became the proud father of “Adonis” on February 6th. I have been wanting to contact you and let you know what a wonderful addition to our family he is! I am very proud of Chris and the care he gives Marlo. He has completed all of his shots, and was neutered in June. He is a happy healthy little guy! He loves meeting people and gets along with other dogs. He has a cousin, Jamal, a female Labradoodle who he sees often and loves to play with. They met when Marlo was 6 days old so they bonded right away. I thought you might enjoy a recent picture of him. Thank you for the wonderful grand-dog!
July 13, 2015
We think he’s amazing and handsome. So glad he joined our pack. He’s fierce
and friendly, the most gregarious dog we’ve ever owned. He loves all people
and other dogs. Thanks for a great start.

Chloe is doing just great. She’s potty-trained and hardly has any accidents now. She rings the bell by the back door to go out when she has access. Sometimes even rings it when she doesn’t. 🙂 She’s with me almost all day and is my little shadow. She sleeps all through the night without a whimper.
She had her first bone the other day and what a prize she found! She didn’t quite know what to do with it after she was done. "Hid" it in just about every corner of every room.
We’re taking a loop around the block three times each day and it’s barely enough for her boundless energy. She’s the hit of the neighborhood. She knows many of the dogs and all the kids (and adults) just love her.
These are great dogs, more outgoing than Shelties, I think. Here are some pictures taken at various times…

Rudy (Formerly Storm)
Just wanted to give you a little update on Rudy (storm) he is doing great!
He is getting so big he is 10 pounds now. He is having a lot of fun with
Henry they love to play together. He is so adventurist and brave. We love
him so much. Here is a family photo of all 4 of us we took this weekend.

Willa (Formerly Ranya)
It’s hard to believe Lil Miss Willa is now a year and a half old! She’s a
gem! Her brother Jackson and she get along great!
She passed her CGC and is now in Therapy training. We even bumped into a
gal you know who had a beautiful Blue Merle Male at the last class. She
recognized Willa as one of your lines immediately.
Willa is also doing Agility training – she’s great at it … me not so much
but she seems to love it so we’ll continue on. And then she in an off leash
class as well. So we are keeping busy getting thru the puppy years.
Jackson even got his CGC as a result of all the training with Willa – so my
10 year old can be taught new tricks too.
Just thought I’d touch base and let you know she’s going GREAT! Love her

Jack seems very happy. My aussie seems to be very interested in him – in a good way. He is running all over the yard. He’s very coordinated and strong. He has a fantastic personality and seems to really like people. He’s eating and drinking great. He’s doing a lot of exploring and my Mitari just follows him around. Then he turns and follows Mitari around. He had a very long and scary day but he seems like he likes us. We sure like him.
Thank you so much for letting us adopt him. I promise you he will be much loved.
I’ll keep you updated.
Thank you again,
May 20, 2015
Thank you so much for my beautiful little boy Harper! I’m so happy to have gotten him and appreciate all the hard work and dedication it took to raise such a great looking/great personality type of dog! I’ll be sure to send you some pics in the days to come!

Asher is doing fine. Having him in our family makes every day more special.

We could not enjoy him anymore than we do! He’s such a good dog and a great traveler!

Thank you so much again for Jack! He is one of the best puppies we’ve ever had.

I just wanted to share some pictures of Cheetah at her new home. We have named her Nala. She is adjusting well and Bucky LOVES her 😉
Joe and I are so happy with her. She is such a sweetheart, but sassy at the same time. She is a perfect mix!! My aunt has been helping us take care of her since we work so much during the day and she just absolutely loves her too 🙂
She is absolutely amazing though and we love her dearly!.
Thank you for bringing such a wonderful puppy into our lives.
Hope you have a great day!

How are things? Looks like you are getting ready for some more fun puppy raising! First, I want to let you know that Lincoln (Hunter) is doing great- we have been in agility since 10 weeks of age and he loves it. I am not actually planning on competing with him in that sport, but it is great foundation training for the therapy dog work I hope he will aspire to. So far, his aptitude is showing great promise for the therapy dog work. He has been in other classes to help round out his skills and I have a group of high school kids beginning a program he is a part of as well. So far, so good! He is also absolutely gorgeous! Dripping in coat with a lovely head- we are very proud of him.

I just wanted to let you know that he’s still doing great. He slept really
well and I hardly heard a peep all night. I had his crate on my nightstand
so that I was close by. I was playing with him outside today and we had a
lot of fun. I think I am going to take him by the lake tomorrow. I love his
personality! He’s so calm and playful.

Thank you for opening up your home, heart and especially Serena to our family. Your passion and dedication to your dogs is amazing. Your hard work shows.
Serena far exceeded our expectations. She is simply beautiful. She is all we talked about on our drive home.
Again, Wanda, thank you!

Hi Wanda! Trigg (Tazor) was 2 years old on January 13th. He is a great dog; so smart and loving. He loves to play ball and Frisbee, go to agility school, swim, and play in the snow. My 12 year old son has taken so many pictures of Trigg and has created an Instagram account just for him. He has over 2800 followers.
We are constantly looking at your website. We are seriously considering getting another mini aussie. Do you think you will ever breed Tamika? In the meantime, we will continue to monitor your site for our next family member 🙂

Doing great! So laid back! He loves his new big brothers, and he quickly renamed himself Chase. What a wonderful addition to the family!
Getting so big! He is a wonderful little boy and we love him very much! Wonderful!
He tells us when he has to go out (not used to that) and is great with the kids. He has a squeaky toy he is obsessed with, hiding, finding, attacking, lol. He’s quite the funny little man 🙂
