Blue Note Aussie’s Puppy Policy
All Show | Breeding Prospects are sold on a Co-Ownership All Pet
| Companion Puppies are sold on a Spay | Neutered Contract
A sound breeding program with hard work and dedication has gone into the Blue Note Kennel. Each litter is planned to combine exceptional genetics to produce sound, correct Australian Shepherds. Blue Note Aussies has produced top winning Australian Shepherds in conformation. We have several beginning their performance careers. We are a young Kennel with high expectations of our future Aussies. All adult dogs at Blue Note Aussies have OFA hip Certifications and are eye tested annually. Puppies are eye tested All Puppies are sold with guarantees and life time support in any training or competition venue. If I can’t help you I will provide materials to aid you or refer you to someone that can help in any of your needs. All puppies are placed after appropriate health checks. Puppies are raised in the house and are exposed to many sights and sounds. At about six weeks of age I begin leash training and some clicker training. We then move on to exploring the woods and lake area to further their awareness of the great outdoors and the world around them before leaving for their future homes.
I promise to always support you in raising and training your Aussie. I am always here for buyers with questions in training and health advice to ensure a lifelong home for these special puppies.
Deposits are required and will be deducted from the purchase price of the puppy. Buyers will be placed in pick order by contract commitment and deposits received.
Blue Note Aussies puppy placing policy we determine each individual puppy’s placement according to that specific puppy’s personality, and by the role it will play within its new family. Because, as breeders, we feel it is very important to place each puppy in the right home, we carefully evaluate each puppy’s temperament as it is growing in order to make this determination.
We do not allow buyers to choose what puppy they would like from the litter, since this would often result in a poor match between dog and owner. It is our goal for the dog to have a happy, lifetime home with equally happy owners, and we have been very successful using our experience to match up puppies and owners.
While buyers may choose to limit what sex and color puppy they would like to have, we do not encourage this. Buyers who do so must be aware that this will limit their chances of getting a puppy from a specific litter, since the puppy of that color and sex in the litter may not be the best match for them.
(FYI… the differences between a male and a female that will be neutered or spayed is minimal. Both make excellent pets).
Please understand that we breed on a limited basis, and it is not a made-to-order business in regards to color, sex, temperament or quality (show or pet).
In matching puppies with owners, we try to be as expedient as possible in the decision making process, but we do not begin making final decisions about which homes individual puppies go to until after 6-8 weeks of age when overall health, temperament, structure and movement can be clearly evaluated.
(Puppies do not leave for their new homes until they are at least 8 weeks).

They may have mismarks or slight variations of the Breed Standard which would not make them show quality and are sold with limited registration, meaning that these puppies must be spayed or neutered. They are eligible to compete in all performance events (agility and obedience), but cannot compete in AKC or ASCA conformation events (except ASCA Altered Champion program).
