Thank you for visiting Performance Plus Australian Shepherds
Aussies are amongst the most intelligent breeds in the world.
Developed primarily as a herding breed, today, the Aussie excels in many other competitions ,conformation, obedience, tracking, search and rescue, agility, herding. dock diving, rally O and more.
They are wonderful companions and excellent family dogs. They are protective, territorial and extremely loyal.
We are a small private kennel, located in the beautiful country side of Vankleek Hill, Ontario.
Our home has an awesome view of the Gatineau Hills from our front veranda
We border on the Alfred Bog which enables us to take our Aussies out for some long walks.
Our kennel was established in 1974 and in the early the years, we produced some outstanding
Scottish Terriers and West Highland Terriers and Kerry Blue Terriers and since 2001, the Australian Shepherd.
The knowledge that Bev has acquired through the years of breeding and showing dogs reflects in our outstanding foundation dogs.
We are proud to have bred sound dogs with good characters.
We began our involvement with the Australian shepherd in 2001.
We take pride in producing Quality not Quantity with only one or two litters per year.
Our puppies are raised in the house and are part of the family, providing extensive socialization.
Our Australian Shepherds have a combination of top American and Canadian bloodlines.
Our bloodlines lines produce dogs that excel in the Performance fields as well as the Conformation ring and are wonderful companions.
Brains and Beauty should go hand in hand.
Agility, Herding ,Tracking ,SAR, (Search & Rescue),Obedience, Flyball, Dock Diving as well as Conformation Champions can be found throughout the pedigrees of our aussies and if you check out our dog's individual pages, you will see they are carrying on the tradition of "versatility and performance", earning titles in several performance venues.
We dont just say we produce performance dogs, the proof is there in the outstanding accomplishments of our foundation dogs and their offspring.
We believe that a sound minded Aussie is one of the foremost requirements in a breeding program.
The Aussie should have a great drive to work and please his or her owner, but not be hyper.
The other fundamental requirement would be conformation.
Dogs that are sound in body so that they are able to do the work for which they were bred.
Here at our kennel we are breeding to the Standard which calls for "Moderation" .
The "all around" aussie with beautiful, correct structure and movement and with lots of drive to perform in whatever field they compete in.
When you visit the pages of our Aussies you will see them in action and exhibiting the ability that has earned them many titles.
What we have not shown you are our Aussies, upside down on their doggy beds, "chillin" which they also love to do.
Thankyou for stopping by and we hope you enjoy your visit.
