Welcome to Willowlake

I am a small show hobby breeder from Central Georgia. All of my dogs are pets, who happen to be show dogs. My priority is to produce healthy dogs with an emphasis on temperament and structure. All of my dogs are dual registered with ASCA/AKC.

My goal at Willowlake is to produce dogs with the physical and mental soundness to excel in all arenas of competition, and yet still be family dogs whether camping or on the living room couch!  Maintaining the versatility of aussies is very important to me, and my dogs actively compete in conformation, agility, herding, obedience, rally, dock diving and fastcat.  I firmly believe in a title at both ends.


***Australian Shepherd Club of America: "The Miniature Australian Shepherd, North American Shepherd, North American Miniature Australian Shepherd, and/or Toy Australian Shepherd breeds are not recognized as a  variety of Australian Shepherd by ASCA.  The club considers such dogs to be a distinct and separate breed and will not accept them into its registry. "Our bylaws state that ASCA's purpose is: 'To encourage members and breeders to accept one breed standard for  the Australian Shepherd as approved by the Club as the only standard of excellence by which Australian Shepherds shall be judged.' It is the mission of this club and the mission of its members to preserve the breed rather than change it."***
