About Us

At Sunset Ridge Aussies, we strive to raise confident, healthy, socialized puppies in a home environment rather than a kennel.  We only raise 2 or 3 litters each year and each litter is raised with daily training and positive reinforcement.  We’re very fortunate to have 12 acres behind us here at the Lake of the Ozarks, so the dogs can run and play.

We are hobby/show breeders of Miniature American Shepherds aka Miniature Australian Shepherd and we strive to produce the best conformation and versatility of the breed. We do this by selecting quality line bred dogs that meet the criteria of quality and soundness.

Note from Karin –

Dogs have always been my passion. I showed Collies in my early teens and many years later trained and showed Doberman Pinschers. Since then I adopted a Miniature Australian Shepherd from a shelter. That was my first Mini Aussie and I just fell in love.

Our dogs are a part of our family and we thoroughly love them. They’re wonderful companions and very loyal, plus my dogs and I are Frisbee nuts! In the Picture, Travis and I are at the IABCA Show in St. Louis, MO.
