Snowdance Australian Shepherds is a small hobby kennel that began in 1999. We live on 4 acres in Southern Vermont in a small tourist town. We are located on a dead end road on top of a hill overlooking the valley. Our dogs are part of our family and live indoors and partake in our daily activities.
Both of us grew up with dogs - Richard with Irish Setters and myself with Poodles. Richard continued to have dogs when he adopted a shepherd mix from the North Shore Animal League in New York.
Our first encounter with an Aussie was at an outdoor wedding.
We were intrigued on how obedient and well mannered this dog was acting.
Little did we know that this would lead us to where we are today.
Our long term goals are to produce quality over quantity.
We feel temperament and health followed by structure and intelligence are our top priorities.
Currently we are involved in agility, conformation, tracking and have dabbled in herding.
