Tin Roof Australian Cattle Dogs Puppy Info

We consider our dogs family members. We understand that they are dogs, but they are living amongst us in our daily lives and activities and we love them dearly!

What you can expect from Tin Roof ACDs

Our Tin Roof ACD puppies are AKC Registered, provided with DNA Health testing on all sires/dams to be "A" Clear for prcd-PRA & PLL, micro-chipped, receive age appropriate vaccines, and de-worming. We follow protocols mentioned in Puppy Culture & Avidog enrichment programs, which include(but not limited to):

  • Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) for optimization of central nervous system development 

  • Barrier Challenge for improving frustration tolerance in puppies and enhanced problem solving ability

  • Conditioned Emotional Response to create positive associations with crates, handling, grooming, etc.

  • Desensitization and Habituation to loud noises, including vacuum cleaners, making noise with/dropping household items, and playing different types of music 

Again, we strive to raise our pups with as many experiences as possible every day by exposing them to new textures, activities, noises, and mainly human affection. The puppies are always fully health tested, sire and dam with excellent bloodlines, & most of our dogs most are conformation Champions & titled in several other events.
Something I hear often is, "Oh I don't need a top show quality dog, just a pet..." The AKC Conformation show champions are an important part of our program because it is crucial for a dog to be structurally correct & balanced. This permits the dog to travel properly which helps prevent lameness and arthritis, and allows the dog to cover ground effortlessly. The judges have scrutinized and awarded the Champions for conformation and characteristics in comparison to the breed standard and the competition. Champion pedigrees help produce better puppies with a higher potential to live longer, healthier lives. Purchasing a puppy out of Champion "show" dogs is not important to most pet owners, but it should be due to those benefits described above. Having champion pedigrees also gives the benefit of having a documented history of the ancestors, where the dogs came from, and any health issues or testing results will also be available. We do our best to produce top quality puppies with best chances for health, longevity, sound body, and good temperament. 
Please be sure to research about the breed traits as an ACD is not always an easy breed to live with. Most of them are wonderful companions, but do tend to need room to roam with a job. ACDs are great sport dogs; Nosework, dock diving, fast cat, fly ball, agility and more.
