About Our Dogs

Meet Our Dogs:

English Shepherds are a heritage breed, whose ancestors were some of the first dogs brought to America. Males tend to get around 60 to 65 lbs.  Females tend to get around 40 to 50 lbs.  They are a great working breed and/or family pet.  One great feature about them is their "off switch".  They can work all day and then come in and relax with your family.  They are great with kids and other pets. 

We believe that English Shepherds, like other "collie" breeds make a great working dog.  However, they will also be completely happy not living on a farm herding sheep.  All English Shepherds may have some "herding" instinct, which can be simply satisfied by playing fetch or similar activity.  Letting them patrol your/their yard and taking them for walks absolutely suffices to satisfy their energy needs.  In our honest opinion, what makes the English Shepherd the best of the "collie" breeds is their off switch.  They are able to come inside at the end of the day and relax with their family. 

We believe there are 3 temperaments when it comes to dogs: aggressive, neutral and passive. All of our puppies are raised to have a neutral temperament, without a prey drive.  Neutral means that they are self-confident, have coping skills, enjoy interacting, and happily play with other dogs.  But, they are also content to find non-destructive ways to amuse themselves, if there is no one to play with.  Obviously, some training is required and chew toys/bones should be provided (especially during teething).  But, the bottom line is that none of our puppies have ever shown signs of aggression or passiveness (unhappy, fearful, anxious).  They make the best companions.

For our breeding program, we wanted each puppy to have very diverse genetics.  So, we traveled over 2,000 miles from New York to Montana to get our Stud, "Rolly". Our puppies have an incredibly rare and unique mix of East Coast and West Coast genetics.  We believe this gives them their amazingly fluffy, strong, teddybear-like appearances that we have come to love and have not seen anywhere else.  But, appearances are definitely not everything.  Our puppies live with us, as family until they go onto their new families.  By doing this, we believe they are the most socialized puppies you will ever meet.
