"Margot" (black tri female NBT) arrived on the 27th of July 2023, whelped at home. She is my first ever singleton to raise so it has been a learning curve for sure. We are all absolutely in love with her and Fallon has been an amazing Mum to her one special baby.
Margot is available to an exceptional home. Please send me an email to be sent a questionnaire. She has been raised using Puppy Culture protocols and following Puppy Culture's "The Joy Of Singletons". She will suit a dog savvy home with people who will include her in their daily activities as she is very people-focused. Margot has good food drive and loves to play with toys. She is $4500 and has had the following done:
Dogswest Limited Registration (this means she cannot be shown or bred from but is eligible to compete in all other disciplines including herding, agility, obedience, etc.)
Her first vaccination
Up to date with worming
Clear puppy eye exam
Lots of body handling including washing, blow-drying, brushing, trimming nails and cuddles
She has begun clicker training including learning the beginnings of sit, lie down and crate conditioning
Exposure to our pet chook, trips in the car, having time in the yard by herself and play time with our older 12 year old and 10 year old Aussie Shepherd dogs
Toilet training foundations, with consistency and diligence she will be a breeze (bearing in mind she is 9 weeks old so developmentally she will not yet have full bladder control)
Margot's parents, Fallon and Ollie, have been fully health tested including hips & elbow scoring, DNA panels and current clear eye tests. Proof of all health testing is available on request.
How To Enquire
If you are interested in Margot, please send me an email and I will send you a questionnaire to fill out and send back. I request that anyone who is interested fills out this questionnaire so that I don't forget to ask any questions when getting to know people. There are no right or wrong answers, so please be honest as it helps with choosing the right home for her.
Tips for Contacting Breeders
When contacting breeders, save the question of price for after more of a conversation where you've offered some information about yourself and the home you are planning to provide an Australian Shepherd. Some good things to answer are:
What kind of activity level are you looking for in a dog?
How much grooming are you prepared to give a dog?
What kind of house/yard set up do you have for housing a dog?
What other dogs have you owned in the past?
Do you plan to participate in any dog sports such as conformation, herding, agility, obedience, tracking, dry-land sledding, lure-coursing, etc.?
Some breeders may also request that you fill out a questionnaire when you contact them but it depends on their preference.
Please Note: I understand that Australian Shepherds come in some stunning, unique colours and patterns, but BlaznHot does not allocate puppies based on colour and requests for a particular colour can't always be granted. However, if a home is willing to wait an indefinite period of time for their "perfect" puppy, I'm happy to keep them on the list until there's a puppy available.
