A word from some of our Aussomedog family members❤️
I am so glad we bought our 3 month old puppy, Lady, from Erika at Aussomedog. Purchasing a dog from a good breeder whose goal is to create a well-balanced dog makes all the difference in the world.
My 3 month old puppy, Lady, is sweet, funny, outgoing, pretty, and smart. The vet thinks she is a great dog, calm, curious, and friendly and has told me no less than 5 times that she should study to be a service dog. What a compliment!
We took our second puppy training session at Petsmart and out trainer says she is the smartest dog she has trained and she already can do some items from the advanced class. So far, our little miss can sit, stand, lay down, bow, touch, paws up, leave it, stack, and walk on a leash, etc. Before you think this pup isn't real, we are still learning how to take a bath without creating a monsoon in the bath tub ;).
At any rate, if you are looking for an Aussie because you want to do rally, agility, service, or conformation it sure gives you leg up to start off with a well-balanced and well-socialized pup.
I had been searching for a puppy for going on three years when I found Aussomdog Kennel. I was specifically looking for a puppy to hang my agility hopes and dreams on ( I compete in dog agility). Copper is AMAZING! She is highly intelligent and hangs on to every little command. I couldn't be happier! When she is not training she is rolling around on the floor with my five little siblings. Erika was soooo helpful and answered every one of my gazillion questions. I could not be happier with her!
When I purchased my puppy from Aussomedog, I thought I was doing just that- purchasing a puppy. Little did I know I had just picked up my sidekick. He is THE BEST dog. Every day (maybe even every hour) that I see him, even if it’s just to leave the room and come back, it’s like he’s just seen me for the first time again. He even SMILES. He gives the best hugs and I come home to the warmest greetings and sweetest snuggles on the hardest of days. He loves people more than other dogs (that is not to say he doesn’t love dogs, just loves people that much more). I could not be happier or more in love with my faithful companion nearly 3 years later. Every day I spend with my pup is a day well spent. I highly recommend getting a dog from Aussomedog. You might just leave with a new best friend.
An Australian Shepherd was my dream dog, I wanted one for years, but had to wait until the timing for taking on the responsibility was just right. I stumbled upon Aussomedog Kennel and reached out to Erika in 2017 to make a connection and let her know that, although now is not quite the right time, I would love for her to keep my information for the future when my husband and I were ready to bring a puppy home. Fast-forward to 2019 and we brought our sweet boy, Rowen, home in June.
Between 2017 and 2019, Erika reached out to inform me of every upcoming litter and was always so patient when I’d tell her, “We’ll have to pass on this one, but maybe we’ll be ready by the time the next litter arrives!” We picked out our beautiful red merle male on April 18th of 2019, which happens to be my birthday (talk about perfect timing). We received pictures and updates of Rowen every week until we picked him up. Erika was so responsive and happy to answer any questions throughout the entire process. When Rowen was four weeks old, we drove to Aussomedog Kennel to see him for the first time and meet Erika. She was more than happy to have us come visit and we got to see just how kind and wonderful the Kirkham family is. Those puppies are truly loved on the moment they are born up until they go home with you.
Rowen has been the biggest blessing, he makes both my husband and I so happy. He is unbelievably smart and keeps the two of us on our toes. Rowen loves a long walk, going to daycare, learning new tricks and snuggling up close when he is worn out from the day. I can’t walk him without multiple people stopping to pet him and tell me how beautiful he is. I may be partial, but he is the BEST dog and I will always be grateful to Aussomedog Kennel for giving me the perfect sidekick!
