Welcome to our website

If you are looking for a puppy, don’t settle for second best, buying a puppy is a huge investment for the next 12-16 years; I cannot stress enough that being patient and buying a quality puppy is more important than buying the first puppy that becomes available. Spend some time and check out that it is the right breed for you. Then  buy the pup of choice from a breeder that is registered with DogsNSW and are active in the breed e.g.: showing regularly or into obedience or agility etc. Breeders should be a member of a club related to their breed, Good Breeders are breeding to improve the breed and are not breeding just for the sake of having a litter to sell as pets for the pet market; pet breeders are not seeking to improve the breed.

Ask many questions to the breeder, ask to visit their home, a good breeder should be open to all questions and viewing of the dogs and home. Often the dog is not owned by the puppies breeder, though it means dad can’t be seen it also means that the breeder goes outside their kennel to improve quality of  puppies

If you visit a breeder and are not satisfied with the conditions, walk away do not buy a pup and “save” it from its environment, this only encourage more puppies to breed from this person.  

I will be happy if you choose an Australian Terrier or schipperke dog breed you want and buy your Aussie puppy from me. I generally have only a
n aussie litter every second year, this means you will have to wait and order your puppy from me.

note over 70 years old please have care planfor pup as dog might outlive you.otherwise no pup from me
