About the Parents

I am so beyond ecstatic to finally make this announcement. Arya has become everything I wanted her to be and more. She has an incredibly sound temperament, a fantastic off switch, and a great work ethic. She is the kind of dog you can find snoozing on the couch all day but if you ask her to work, she'll be right at your side ready to go at a moment's notice. She has never met a stranger, loves children and other dogs, and adores traveling/hiking and exploring new places. She competes and excels in a variety of sports, such as agility, dock, disc, scent work, rally, and trick dog. She is a carrier for EAOD and is health panel clear otherwise. For OFA she received a "Good" for her hips & "Normal" for shoulders & elbows.

Upon stud searching, I wanted to find a dog that would complement her, as well as add where necessary. A dog with a great off switch, wonderful conformation, environmental stability, health panels, and more. 

When I say Jagger is everything I wanted in a stud, he is everything I wanted in a stud and more. Jagger is a proven stud, having had 5 incredibly talented litters, is completely bombproof, never met a stranger (looooves children!), and is fantastic in every sport his fantastic mama Ana has trained him in. He has a love for herding, flyball (3.85), disc, dock, obedience (working on his utility title), and does a little agility on the side (5x Canadian World Team Member). As Ana says, he has no problem being an absolute idiot at flyball, being super think-y when herding, and using his brain in obedience. Jagger is health panel clear, with OFA results of "Good" for hips & "Normal" for elbows.

These pups have been everything we expected them to be and more. They are lovely members of the family, have fantastic off switches, and thrive in any sport thrown their way. They are thriving in agility, disc, scent work, dock diving, obedience, herding, canicross, and so much more. More information is available above
 on each dog's bios by clicking on their names or their photos.
