Louvre Australian Shepherds
All of our dogs are fully health tested and assessed by our reproduction specialist prior to breeding to ensure that our dams are healthy before breeding. Each of our puppies are from Fully health tested and registered parents. We raise our litters in our home using Early neurological stimulation (ENS) and puppy culture. These methods help ensure that I am giving our puppies the best start in their lives that I can provide to them. Early neurological stimulation is an early protocol made up of a series of exercises to stimulate neurological development, while puppy culture is a training program for both the breeder and the puppy owner teaching a positive way to teach your puppy to communicate with you in a desirable way increasing their ability to learn at an early age by offering desired behaviors.
All of our puppies are $2500 (older puppies may have a slight price increase due to training, vet care expenses etc.) They will have their tails docked (we do not leave tails intact), be examined by our vet, have their first vaccines, be microchipped, and will have been given their first dose of flea/tick/heartworm prevention, and be dewormed bi-weekly prior to going into their new homes. I will also provide you with a detailed list of things you can purchase before bringing your puppy home and puppy care package to be sent home with each puppy consisting of a bin or tote including.

All Show/performance/breeding potential puppies will be sold on co-ownerships, preferably to proven titling home, however I am happy to mentor people that are new to competing with their dogs. All companion puppies will be sold on AKC limited registration with spay/neuter contracts. Our contracts are adjusted accordingly for show/performance/ and companion homes.
Final puppy evaluations
Between 8 and 10 weeks I will do our final evaluations of each individual puppy and decide on final placement at this time. Aussies come in a range of colors and markings, and I am happy to take these into consideration while deciding which puppy best fits the homes on our waitlist, but the deciding factor is that both dog and human are compatible. For example, we would not want to sell a high energy dog, who may need an experienced trainer, to someone who lives in a small apartment and has little time for training. Choosing a puppy based on color and not based on whether the dog and human are compatible can cause strain on the relationship between the two. A better fit for this situation would be a low drive, easily trainable pup or adult dog, even if the dog wasn't the desired color. We reserve first pick of every litter and assess temperaments and structure as our puppies grow. We do everything we can to get you the puppy you want, but we do not allow homes to choose a specific puppy on their own. If there is one potential puppy at the time evaluations are finished that would be a good fit, you may meet those puppies individually. All of our puppies are $2500 (older puppies may have a slight increase in price.) A $500 non-refundable Reservation fee will be accepted once pregnancy is confirmed (via cash, or check) to hold your puppy until they go home at 10 weeks of age. The remainder of the purchase price is due at the time of pick-up (cash only).
We do everything with the best interest of our puppies in mind and for this reason we do not ship puppies or adult dogs via cargo shipping. Buyers must pick up in person. For those not able to drive in, it is highly recommended that you fly in and take your puppy back on the plane with you(as carry on) or hire a flight nanny to take care of this for you. The closest airport to us is CVG . You are responsible for making and paying for all shipping arrangements for you puppy. If a health certificate is needed for your puppy, a $100 fee must be paid before vet visit is scheduled.
