If you are looking for a quality puppy/dog that is well socialized, can be competitive in any performance or conformation ring, and will be sure to be a life long companion, than you have come to the right place for your next Australian Shepherd puppy. LHT Aussies is where form meets function.
Puppies are ASCA and/or AKC Registered and raised 1 litter at a time. They are up to date
with vaccinations and worming prevention programs. Puppies come with a 100% health guarantee, as all breeding pairs are OFA and genetic health tested. Socialization starts at birth. Careful temperament evaluations are completed weekly until the age of 8 weeks to determine what puppy will be the best fit for each new home.
Puppies go to approved homes only. You can expect your new puppy to arrive well on their way to being crate and potty trained.
We are excited to see our grown
puppies being successfully handled in the show conformation ring, Rally/agility/dock diving competitions, therapy/alert dogs, working in the herds of ranchers and/or down the road at the next horse event.
Thank you for visiting us!
Jeromy, Jacqueline, Ivy, Wyatt, Smurf, Barrett, Flame, Freckles, Panda, Denali, Autumn.....and Josey too!
LHT Aussies is located near Grand Lake in Miami, Oklahoma at the Lipps Horse Training and 100 acre cattle Bar 20 Ranch. The dogs are used in daily activities. When they are not working, they are relaxing with our family, Ivy 11 and Wyatt 9 years old or competing at AKC and ASCA events.
LHT Aussies are bred to the ASCA and AKC breed standards. To validate their worthiness to be used for breeding, they all have complete DNA profiles, genetic testing, OFA hips, elbows, and Eye CERTS done on all breeding pairs. If they are not Champions themselves, they are Championed pedigreed. You will find in the website links to results in their profiles to verify. Their intelligent minds, pleasant disposition and herding instincts make them highly trainable and a pleasure to work with.
All this and put in attractive packaging.
Our foundation breeding girls are Clearview's Lite My Fire "Flame" and Cowgirl Josey. Recently, we have selected a few outside males to breed to before spaying Flame in 2018. LHT Kiss My Cowgirl "Panda" is caring on the legacy of her mother, Cowgirl Josey, working our Charolais herd. She was crossed with CH Cedar Hill Take Your Best Shot "Barrett" in 2017 and produced outstanding pups that were titled in CGC, Trick, RAX and was a BOS in their 1st Conformation show. A few are working towards competing in Agility, once growth plates allow. We are excited about our 2 up and coming girls that are daughters of Flame, Aspen and Denali. Both Sired by ASCA CH / AKC GCH CH Emptynest Silver Lining. Both have titled in AKC, CH LHT On A Mountain High "Denali" & GCH Alaskan Aspen, and Aspen was the #1 Open Blue Merle Bitch at the 2018 ASCA Highland Pre Nationals. We welcomed Aspens 1st litter the Fall of 2018. We were blessed with 3 puppies sired by the 2018 #1 Australian Shepherd all systems MBIS MBISS GChP. Silverwood's Kiss of Fire at Limelite "Tango" before the untimely death of Aspen. Her only daughter, LHT This Girl is on Fire "Autumn" has joined our pack.
We originally had one breeding boy; AKC ptd Kiss My Smurf, but welcomed ASCA Major ptd & AKC CH Cedar Hill Take Your Best Shot "Barrett" to our home May 2017. We also have breeding rights to up and coming Co Own LHT Aussie Bred By boys, LHT Daytona HF Fire Rooster "Rooster", LHT Great Balls of Fire (Tango x Aspen) & LHT The Ring of Fire (Tango x Aspen).
There are Smurf x Flame and Smurf x Josey puppies all over the world! They have been blessed with amazing humans. They have proved to be truly versitale dogs. They have a reputation of have great drives that play when asked and have wonderful off buttons. They are substantial dogs with a lot of bone and presence.
