RUFF STOCK WORKING AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS is an Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) DNA Certified Kennel producing Canada's finest working Aussies since 1992. We linebreed on foundation pedigrees to produce strong working instincts using clean genetics. Specializing in dogs bred to work cattle. Our pups are ASCA and Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) registered and come with a one year health guarantee.

We are home to ASCA Nationals Qualifier Hangin Tree Huck Finn ATDdc OTDs RD DNA-CP. As well as the first Canadian bred WTCH female Wtch Ruff Stock's Eye Got Ewe Babe RD DNA-CP as well as many other excellent trial and ranch working Aussies.

We would like to thank the many folks for purchasing our working Aussies, breeding to our sires and incorporating our genetics into their breeding programs. We know there are countless ranchers and cattlemen who have utilized our dogs on their ranches and feedlots, who's dogs will never make it into a trial arena or ever be bred. But we gauge our breeding program on their involvement as we strongly feel this is why our breed was started. We also extend our sincere thanks to the following ASCA kennels for their support and friendship:

  • BAR LW - C. Wade & Lynette Carter and Family

  • Rising Sun - Becky Beckmann

  • Las Rocosa - Jim & Lisa, Ernest & Elaine Hartnagle and Family

  • Mighty Fine - Kalvin Tupps

  • Legends - Steve and Anne Shope

  • CCK - Dana and Fred Lemmert

  • Winseer - Leslie Kasner and family

  • L Bar J - The Holmes family

  • Mikatura - Foss and Jeni Gallichan

  • Little Chipmonk - Petra Harrison

Roy Sage, Jo Kimes, and Dana McKenzie for all the encouragement and friendship over the years. To Elvin Kopp for mentoring us and to our many Border Collie friends for helping us to push the limits of our handling ability and to strive to get the very best out of our dogs! Our love of dogs has brought us many great friendships and many more great memories!!

Always remember fortune favors the brave!

Although we have not bred our Border Collies, we have enjoyed trialling with the Alberta Stockdog Association (ASDA) and strongly feel Alberta has some of the finest working Border Collies. We have trialled in ASCA with our Border Collies, WTCH Ruff Stock Belle RTDs and Ruff Stock Jen OTDdsc RTDs. We would like to welcome our newest additions Erin and Brisk. Our Border Collies are not only used as our trial dogs but also provide us with countless hours of assistance in daily chores working side by side with our Aussies to create an invaluable team of hired men.
