We are located in Highland, MI – about one hour North of Detroit, 35 minutes North of Ann Arbor. Our closest airports are FNT and DTW. If you’re flying on a private plane you will want to fly into PTK.
On average they are usually $3000-$5000 per pup. Sometimes less, never more. All of my pups are sold to PET ONLY homes. I do NOT sell breeding rights.
Option 1: If you are local to me when your pup is ready to go I would like to personally deliver the pup to your home. That way I can spend some time with you and answer any questions. I would stay until the pup gets settled in. This usually takes about 30 minutes.
Option 2: VIP White Glove Hand Delivery – We can hand deliver your fur-ever friend for an additional fee. This allows the puppy to travel IN the main cabin with a Pet Nanny. We would just need you to meet us at your local airport. The rates within the U.S. range from $450-$550. Please inquire for Canadian and International rates. ALL Rates INCLUDE time & airfare. We are able to keep these rates so low because these are for STAND BY flights. Therefore, your schedule must allow for flexibility. If the Nanny is unable to get on the planned flight they will try for the next flight and so on. Delivery time changes can occur throughout the day on the day of delivery
Option 3: If you need the pup flown to you, but would prefer a guaranteed time you may purchase a guaranteed seat for the Nanny. Many folks like to use their miles for this option. If you purchase a seat in advance, the Nanny would only charge for their time. You can expect to pay the same or close to the rate if they were flying standby in addition to the cost of the ticket.
Option 4: You can drive to Michigan to pick up your puppy. I am willing to drive up to 60 minutes one way at a location of my choosing to meet you to help shorten your drive.
Option 5: You’re welcome to fly here and I will meet you at your hotel or airport to deliver your puppy.
I will not ship my pups in cargo.
VIP White Glove Hand Delivery service is NOT included in the puppy price.
In short, no. We are not a Storefront or Kennel. Please view our Visitation Policy for alternatives to an in-person visit.
We are very blessed to keep a consistently long wait list. In most cases, you can expect to wait 3-6 months for a puppy from us. Expect to wait on the longer side for a Merle, and the shorter side for a Tri.
In a nutshell, there are 4 steps:
- Wait for Approval,
- Submit the Refundable Reservation Fee
- Wait for your turn to pick a puppy.

They do shed! The Toy Aussie wears a moderately thick double coat. The undercoat is shed twice yearly and shedding is moderate between these periods, although degree will vary with individual dog. Regular brushing once or twice a week will help minimize shedding and keep their skin and coat healthy. The Toy Aussie’s coat is not long enough to require heavy daily attention.
Australian Shepherds are NOT hypoallergenic.
