Who are we?

Who are we?

Welcome to K & L Aussies. We are dedicated to providing our dogs and clients with the best care possible. We focus on health, holistic nutrition, appropriate mental and physical stimulation, and training for both humans and dogs. We strive to provide adequate information to each of our clients to ensure lifelong companionship with their dogs.

K & L Aussies was founded in 2011 by Kelli, and has come a long way from its beginnings with our first Australian Shepherd Red the red merle.

We choose each one of our litters carefully to ensure we are pairing 2 dogs together that will compliment one another perfectly. We focus on spending time with each one of the pups to ensure proper stimulation at just the right times. We use Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) as well as Early Sound Stimulation (ESS) with each one of our litters. We follow a strict protocol to ensure we do our part in the early stages of the puppy’s life to help create a balanced puppy.

We focus on teaching all of our personal dogs how to be off leash. It’s important to us that our dogs, get to be dogs. We feel it’s best for their emotional, mental and physical well being to run around and sniff.

Optimal health and longevity for each of our dogs is important to us. We start with nutrition! We are strong believers of feeding all dogs a natural balanced raw food diet. 

We hope you enjoy our dogs as much as we do. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us, we are happy to explain more about what we do, and how we do it.
