We raise our puppies in our home using Puppy Culture protocols. We use pain free and fear free training techniques along with positive reinforcement.
All of our puppies will go home with a "Gotcha Day" gift basket full of toys, supplies, and a blanket that has the mother's scent to help sooth your puppy on their first nights away from their littermates and mom. We now also include a Calmeroo in every basket!
Since our very first Aussie rescue, we have fallen in love with this breed and think you will too. We are a small family breeder located in Garland, Maine. Our breeding program includes Purebred Australian Shepherds with full tails. We do not breed natural bobs and WILL NEVER dock tails. Our focus is on low to medium drive and sweet temperaments. We love our Aussies, but potential owners need to be aware of the specific physical and mental needs that come with owning this herding breed.
Please watch the video below to see if this might be a good fit for your family.
All of our dogs are deeply loved and kept in our home as pets. We do not chain our dogs up or lock them in kennels. They are in our home and by our feet all day, every day. We also truly care for every puppy that is born in our home and want to make sure that they find the best homes possible.
We recommend families watch Zac George's Dog Training Revolution videos, BrightDog Academy's compassion-based dog training videos, and continue with Puppy Culture training. Please fill out an application (on our puppy page) if you would like to be considered for our waiting list.
Every family that comes through our doors becomes part of our MilkyWay family and we love to get updates, pics, and videos once our puppies leave. It is always a bittersweet day when they leave, but seeing them grow and live a happy life with their new family also makes us happy! We believe in having a great relationship between owner and breeder and we are always here if you have future questions or concerns.
