Why Elk Ridge?

Why choose Elk Ridge Australian Shepherds

We only choose breeding stock that is tested and has fabulous temperaments.


At Elk Ridge,  our dogs live in our home and in specially selected guardian homes. They must be able to be a part of our family first and foremost. Our dogs are not raised in kennels. They are pets first and breeding, show, performance prospects second. We love our dogs and it is evident in the puppies that we produce!


Our Babies

New York Aussie breeder

We send our babies off with the best start in life.

Our family focuses our collected attention on your baby from the moment of conception until we place the puppy into your arms and loving care. We follow a special training program called "Puppy Culture". This is a great program developed to help socialize, stimulate, and educate your puppy and gives them a great advantage as they begin their journey with you and your family. We also offer the best veterinary care to our babies. Each puppy is examined by our certified vet and we send you with a complete health history and record. We spare no expense to offer you a puppy with the best start in life!

We value the time that we spend with each puppy. Every puppy socializes with us, our children, grandchildren and other dogs.
