Beam is a very stable dog, she is very open to people and relaxed around children. She doesn't have problems with other dogs and does not have a strong guarding instinct. When she is working she gives her 100%, but also has a very good "off button" and relaxes easily when she is not working. We have started training search and rescue when she was a puppy and she has already passed her first seach and rescue exam. We also try to train herding as much as possible. We've already attended our first trial where she had some very nice runs with qualifing scores in sheep, ducks and cattle. When I have time we do some Nosework, Obedience and Rally, where she shows nice focus and also had good placements at competitions. For more information check out her page.
I asked Rango's owners for his description and this is what they wrote: "Rango is our 100% Jackpot dog. He has a very friendly outgoing character, doesn't have a lot of guarding instinct and gets along with all dogs, even males. He has a really nice working style on stock. No matter what you offer him, he trys to do it. He is pretty soft in daily life, but not too soft, so he can still handle preassure very well, also when we compete in Agility, where he turned out to be really nice too. Just a nice boy!!"
For more information about Rango you can visit his web page or contact his owners.
I noticed Rango when he was still a puppy and his owners Nina & Stefan imoprted him from the USA. He comes from a well know kennel Crown Point, where they have been breeding working Australian shepherds for decades. Since Rango has grown up to be a great dog and has also convinced me when I met him in person, I decided to choose him for Beam's litter. I also love Rango's sister Cimmi who lives in Germany and she is one of my favourites Aussies at the moment. I belive that Beam and Rango will complement each other very well in their character, working abilities and looks.
We expect puppies with an open and stable character that will be suitable for different kinds of work.

My goal is to breed Australian shepherds that have the originial working ability and are healthy with a stable character.
Our puppies will live with us in the house and will have proper socialisation with different people, dogs, materials and sounds. When they are old enough, they will have the chance to explore the outside world where they will gain the very important puppy life lessons.
The puppies will:
- have ASCA pedigrees
- be 8 weeks old when they go to their new homes
- be fed with a high quality food, combining home prepared food and kibble
- be microchiped
- be dewormed and vaccinated
- have their first eye check
For the puppies I'm seeking active owners who want to work with their dog either in a dog sport in search and rescue or herding. Because Australian shepherds need to live with their people they are not suitable for living in the back yard or in a kennel.
About Australian shepherds:
If you are interested in Australian shepherds, I believe it's very important to know that Australian shepherds are a working breed with strong herding and guarding instinct. Even though they look nice and friendly they can be chalenging and need consistency and clear rules. They are very active and need a lot of work and attention, both mental and physical. Among the common problems Australian Shepherds owners might encounter with their dogs are reactivity, fearfulness, excessive guarding (which can be seen in relation to humans or dogs), chasing game, chasing runners and cyclists and so on. Certainly these problems are not something that is in the goal of breeding, especially in the modern urban world, but it is something which can happen and is worth keeping in mind.
If the negative characteristics have not dissuaded you from thinking about getting an Australian shepherd, it's also important to say that the Australian Shepherd can be marvelous companions. What makes them amazing is their will to work and love for working with their owners in any activity you can imagine, be it herding, search and rescue, dog sports or just being active together.
