The Australian Shepherd Breed
Pictured Top to Bottom, Left to Right: Skye, Sharpie, Sage and Colt.
At Sliding S Aussies we want our Australian Shepherd dogs to be easy to live with and have a strong working ability. Our dog's bloodlines are primarily Twin Oaks, Windsong, Sweetgrass and Slash V.
In addition to raising, training and trialing stockdogs we offer boarding, socialization and basic obedience services. Well socialized, our puppies are introduced to as much stimulation as possible during the time they are with us here on our farm in Idaho.
I like the "Old Style Aussie," a dog that is healthy with good structure, good movement, a good mind, and temperament.
Superdogs are Made, not Born
We believe in the "Superdogs are made, not born," theory and have had great success with this method of training. All of our dogs work here on the farm. Several have gone on to compete in ASCA® stockdog trials in the Pacific Northwest and Western United States. All our Aussie litters are ASCA® and AKC registered.
