Default Aussie owners!

Can yall help me find a breeder?
I would prefer one in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama, but if there is one in another state that is d@mn good, I am willing to travel.

I know I can Google breeders, but there are SOOO many and I don't know what I am looking for, like I can't tell the difference in certain breeders. (if that makes sense lol).

I know I want a breeder than does farm work but also has some agility/obedience. I am not worried about showing whether its AKC or CKC or whatever.

But I definitely want one that does health testing.
I LOVE Red merles and Blue merles, so someone who has some experience in Merles is a must.

I guess, I am just not up to date on the reputable breeders as much as most of yall are, and I just need some help/guidance

Finding a working Aussie locally is probably going to be difficult... they tend to be few and far between. Showbred dogs are easy to find, but not what you're looking for. Anyway, here's a breed directory of working Aussie breeders: http://www.workingaussiesource.com/

Good luck!

Those dogs I would consider sport dogs, not working. IME the drives and temperament necessary for rally, agility, and flyball, can be quite different from stock work. So before selecting a breeder, if I were you, I'd decided exactly what I want in my dog, and then decide if you want ranch stock, sport bred, etc.

Pincie Creek is down that way, though their dogs have kind of turned hit and miss as far as stable temperaments. However, I hear the owner is a pretty easy guy to talk to and could probably give you some start points if he doesn't have any dogs available.

Also, go here and start asking questions. http://www.theaustralianshepherd.net...oard/index.php

Well I want a sport Aussie, not a stock/herding Aussie.
