Happy New Year and Greetings Friends!

We’re looking forward to 2010! It’s already off to a great start here at Dunham Lake Aussies! 

A few plans for 2010…
Introducing several of our beautiful puppies to the show ring! Mentoring and assisting our wonderful new families adopting one of our puppies.
     Support and assist our club. Continue to volunteer and offer support to our local Humane Society and Aussie Rescue. Attend many dog shows including International shows. As always, stay true to our breeding program and mission to raise healthy and sound Aussies. Enjoy our Aussies!

Since this is a time to reflect, I was thinking about ways I’d like to spend more time in 2010, just enjoying our family and companions.  Here are some ways we enjoy our Aussies and ways you might find fun as well.

Aussies love agility and last year I discovered on line a company called affordableagility.com which is the maker of Agility in a Bag.  It’s a very handy and durable agility course for your dog.  We have spent hours using this set.  It’s easy to set up and take anywhere.  Our Aussies see the carrying case and go crazy!

Other great toys for your pet play time making it more enjoyable consider a few of these toys:     

Interactive toys, such as rope tugs, tennis balls and Frisbees.

Durable fabric toys with or without squeakers. (If you don’t want your dog to go after   bunnies outside, remove all squeakers). 

Kong type toys are great self entertainment for your pooch, where you place a treat inside the toy.  A great toy when you’re not home or entertaining to watch them try to remove the treat :^)

Remember when you give your dog a new toy, make sure it’s safe and not something they can choke on.

We wish you all a fabulous year!

Theresa Greetings from Northwestern Wisconsin! I am a wife, mother, grandmother, breeder and author. I also work with helping small businesses with their website needs. Previously, I had a 25 year banking career. Retired several years ago, as a Vice President of Commercial Banking and Business Development Director for a financial institution. I have owned and raised dogs and cats for over 40 years. In 2007, we started to show and raise Australian Terriers. We now have 10 Australian Terriers and 1 Australian Shepherd an a Great Pyrenees. Breeder of Multiple Best in Show Aussies. We own and have bred some of the top Australian Terriers in the USA. We have bred and co-own the 16th and 17th Best in Show Australian Terrier in America he held the #1 in All-Breed in the USA in both 2013 and 2014. We have bred/own/handle the 2015 #1 Australian Terrier in the USA Jake who also won his first Best in Show with my 15 year old daughter Ellie handling him. Jake is only the 2nd "red" Australian Terrier to ever win a BIS. Breeder of 2 Australian Terriers to Win Best of Breed Westminster 2014 and 2015. We have Championed many Aussies and we have Champions in training, that being said, our dogs are first and foremost our companions. I take my role as a breeder very seriously. I support health testing and temperament testing as well as evaluating proper conformation prior to breeding. We believe in breeding for quality not quantity. We do not ship our puppies.
