OUR AUSSIES (those residing here with us in Albuquerque and those foundation dogs no longer with us)


We sold our ranch late 2016. We will miss it very much. Thank you to all of you who visited us there, sent in dogs for training and handling, who attended clinics or doggy camps, and to all who made the stockdog, obedience, & rally trials plus conformation shows held at our ranch such fun. Here's a picture that was on the news during one of our beautiful NM snow storms at our ranch; it is one of our favorites. We are now located in the south valley of Albuquerque where our dogs still work stock and also train to compete in other disciplines. We no longer take dogs in for training and handling, and we're not breeding dogs. Watch for our Stockdog 101, How to Choose, Raise and Train a Puppy, and our Practical Obedience manuals and videos to be re-released in 2018.
