What has drawn you to owning an Australian Shepherd now? Please be as specific as possible.
I breed AKC Standard Aussies, they should be 18-23" tall at the withers, and 40-65lbs at maturity. Will this size be a problem for you?
Do you have a gender preference?
Clear selection
Our Australian Shepherd puppies may be black tri, red tri, blue Merle, or red merle. Do you have a color preference?
Please describe how envision your puppy fitting in with your family. Be as descriptive as possible and include activities you plan to include them in, places you will take them regularly, and if you plan to take any specialized training classes or compete in events such as nose work, agility, trick training, obedience, conformation, herding, etc.
We select the puppies for each family, since we know our pups better than anyone else. If two equally suitable puppies are available, then we allow the puppies and you to choose each other. How do you feel about this? Again - this does not mean you have no say in the matter, we work together. The more you communicate with us, the better. Whilst of course we accommodate your preferences where possible, are you willing to consider our advice on the most suitable puppy for your household and lifestyle, even if that conflicts with your ideal?

While Australian Shepherds are incredible companions, it is common for them to develop vices and bad habits during adolescence, sometimes even with very responsible of owners. Some examples that come to mind would be excessive barking while outside, breaking out of yards, reactivity while on leash, etc. - If your puppy developed any of these types of issues, how would you address it?
Would you agree to give us right of first refusal should you be unable/unwilling to keep the dog? (This means that if, at ANY time during the life of the dog, you can't keep your dog, send it back to us and we'll keep it until we find it a good home. We don't want any of our 'babies' ending up in shelters or inferior homes!)
Clear selection
You will be required to spay or neuter your puppy no EARLIER than 18 months of age to allow for full development before removing vital sexual hormones, will this be a problem for you?
Clear selection
Do you have any information you'd like to add that we haven't asked about?
Do you have any questions for me? I try to set aside time each day to follow up on questionnaires, but occasionally I do miss one. Please reach out if you don't hear back within 3 days!
