|Emerald Australian Shepherds|
|Emerald Australian Shepherds was established in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1995 with a brother and sister team--Oz and Glinda. Little did we know at the time that we would actually end up living in the Emerald City (Seattle)! Emerald Aussies have focused on competition in conformation, obedience and agility and are selected for the qualities that make a great competitor, but most importantly a great friend.|

All Emerald Aussies have current OFA (hip) and CERF (eye) certifications. Their bloodline selection is intended to minimize or eradicate heritable health conditions such as hip dysplasia, eye defects, allergies, and epilepsy.
As all Emerald Aussies are expected to be companions first and competitors second, our focus is on breeding dogs with even, friendly dispositions, within the normal expectations of the breed standard. Expect a strong to moderate guarding instinct--Aussies make serious barking watchdogs!
Australian Shepherds as a breed demonstrate superior intelligence and problem solving ability. Emerald Aussies are specifically selected for a keen ability to "read" humans, and the ability to learn quickly.
Intelligence can be a problem without the willingness to cooperate with training. Emerald Aussies are selected for their success in training and willingness to please.
Emerald Aussies are guaranteed to meet or exceed the ASCA and AKC breed standards. Dogs used for breeding are champions themselves and are produced from lines that consistently produce dogs of superior structure.
Aussies are among the most beautiful of breeds. Emerald Australian Shepherds combine the above qualities with deep color and optimum coat length and quality. They also tend to smile!
