Australian Shepherds

Dave and Laura Fuller






BlueMyst Australian Shepherds is located in Riverside County in Southern California.

Our goal is to produce Australian Shepherds that are healthy, intelligent, athletic, with a desire to please, as well as having the traits listed in the breed standard. We are a registered kennel with the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA). We are also members of the Australian Shepherd Club of San Diego County and the Orange Empire Dog Club. All of our dogs are registered with both ASCA and AKC.

We do not breed any of our dogs unless they are at least 2 years old, with an OFA certification of good or excellent, and having eyes recently checked as normal.

We bought our first Aussie in 1999. We have been amazed by the breed's intelligence and devotion to their owners. All of our dogs are a part of the family and have free run of our full acre of property. Training in agility and obedience is an ongoing process with all of our Aussies.

Training an Aussie is imperative. Either you train your Aussie, or your Aussie will attempt to train you ( and they are very good at it). Positive training methods work best. We use clicker training with our dogs and puppies. Puppies are allowed to go to their new homes at 8 weeks. By then they will have their beginning shots and will have been introduced to some of the basic obedience commands.

If you choose to purchase an Aussie from us or another breeder, you should know that Aussies are addictive. Before buying an Aussie, please do your homework. There is a lot of great information on the ASCA web page. When you find a breeder with puppies, read their sales contract closely, and ask questions about health, personality, structure of the parents and each of the pups.
