We Have Puppies
As for the last 25 years, Laudrick Aussies carefully plans each breeding with the goal of creating pups that are an excellent representation of the breed, sound of mind and body… healthy, athletic, intelligent, loyal and loving family companions. Then, we raise those pups just as carefully. It takes a lot of time and resources to raise parents and puppies the “right” way. Therefore, we only have a few litters a year… but our pups are worth the wait! We have all colors expected in upcoming litters and have new litters due soon.
You’ll find information and can see pictures of our sires and dams here, including how we choose and care for our fur-parents.
From birth, our puppies get lots of handling and stimulation and by the time they leave us, they have met the cats and other farm animals, played with other adult dogs, met and been gently handled by children, been crated for periods of time during weaning and been exposed to all types of sounds and objects. We do personality evaluations* at 6-7 weeks old to help match puppies to their new families.
(* Personality Matching involves you completing an Owner Questionnaire so we can ascertain what temperament puppy would suit you best. When the pups are close to 7 weeks old we put them each through 8 personality tests that result in them getting a score which reveals their personality. This allows us to match owners with their best fit puppy and ensures that inexperienced owners or those with very small children don't end up with boisterous, high energy dogs. More info on Puppy Personality Matching, including case studies are here: https://www.dogbreedinginformation.com/puppy-personality-matching/ )
Our pups are AKC registerable and will have been started on puppy shots, put on a healthy deworming program, microchipped, litterbox training well-started and sent to their new homes with health records and a LIFETIME health warranty at 8 1/2 weeks old.
I do my best to make sure they’re ready to be the best companion dog possible and will send you home with “How to Raise and Australian Shepherd Puppy” manual to help you stay on track as well as highly recommend Baxter & Bella lifetime online training (see other tab on website for discount).
New litters due soon!
Note from Laura:
I know these times are CRAZY and more than a bit unnerving. We are all concerned with staying healthy and are taking precautions both in the home and out. Here at Laudrick, we have the added concern of caring for our animals too.
With so many people staying home, this is the perfect time to get a new puppy to spend time with and begin training. As 2021 approaches, we are continuing to ship pups all over the US. While at home, we have people asking to come and visit with litters to pick out their new puppies...
Now nothing is cuter than a roly-poly puppy! We completely understand that all of our new puppy parents-to-be want to visit your pup in person, but we're charged with the safety and protection of our dogs. So, at present, we are not allowing farm visits (check out this article) your pup's pickup day.
But... we are taking inventive measures to allow you to watch your puppy grow and change.
We provide online video "chats" with your puppy, as well as short playtime videos, email updates and lots of photos every 10-14 days. We can also discuss your expectations/needs/family life as well as my "take" on pup's personality and its potential for a good fit into your family by phone and email... There are also references on Facebook, our website and available upon request... whatever it takes to get through this time and come out safely on the other side. We are licensed and inspected.
We appreciate your understanding until we can get back to things being "normal" again.
As always, love to talk Aussies so feel free to contact us with any questions...Happy Tails, Laudrick Aussies
