I believe that raising a stable, well-adjusted, dog begins at birth which is why I follow Puppy Culture protocols. My Aussies are raised and live in my home, they are not kennel dogs. Puppies will be weaned onto Purina Pro Plan Puppy kibble and raw. My first priority is that pups are placed in the right home where they will thrive as members of the family. Puppy buyers will be members of the Telltale family and encouraged to join our Facebook group as well as a litter specific group so we can all watch our puppies grow and share experiences and successes.
I strongly believe that all dogs learn best through modern, science-based, positive reinforcement training. Please check out our training and links tab for more information.
Any Aussie born at Telltale will not be docked or have front dew claws removed. I may occasionally have natural bobtail pups available. I feel that my dogs benefit from the use of their tails.
Telltale's stance on the mini or toy Aussie is the same as the ASCA breed standard. 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. (ASCA)
