Our Dogs

The primary objective is to breed very loving pets. We also want you to have the choice to take that pet into the ring for any of the various competitions or jobs in which our versatile breed has been so successful. Every breeding is directed toward both goals.

As a small hobby kennel DreamCatcherAussies offers selective breeding. We strive to produce pups that have it all: temperament, breed type, health, well founded pedigree. It is important for our pups to be versatile and excel at conformation, obedience, performance, and - most importantly - best companion ever.

Ch. Skyecove's Solar Flair, RN, CGC, DNA-VP (Dottie)

Dottie is a wonderful girl and the foundation dam of our kennel. She has great presence, a sweet and affectionate personality, balanced structure, and beautiful side gait. On her way to earning her title, Dottie won a 5-point major and Best of Breed over 6 specials.

Dottie spent most of 2010 competing in Junior Handling and Breed competition with her Junior Handler Genny Glick.

Dottie is retired and enjoying her job of managing our house and kennel.

Thank you, Juli Wiseman of Skyecove Aussies, for allowing this girl to be a part of our lives.

Ch. Skyecoves Arcturus of Sandstone (Tury)

Tury - WOW! Thank you Juli Wiseman (Skyecove Aussies) or this magnificent boy.

This special dog gets his name, Arcturus, from the brightest star in the "Constellation of the Herdsman" (Bootes), a very appropriate name, indeed.

His show career started, just like his dad's career started years before, by winning Reserve Winners Dog at the Alamance Kennel Club, Tar Heel Cluster Show, in Raleigh. His career as a special began with back to back group placements. Lately, Tury has competed on a limited basis, having wonderful Aussie days in the play yard as he matures into a handsome man. He is working on his Grand Championship, competing in the Mid-Atlantic states.

Tury has been featured in the artwork of Tracey Jones and Sarah England.

Tury has loads of attitude, a face to die for, beautiful movement, and loves to show. He's convinced that "it's all about Tury". We think you'll be convinced that he's right.

AKC/UKC -CH DreamCatcher's Thief of Hearts (Bliss)

Bliss from our Dottie x Blue litter. True to her name (Thief of Hearts), she immediately stole ours. Bliss has excellent structure and fluid movement as well as an exuberant personality. Bliss is a combination of the best attributes her mom and dad could give.

Bliss represents the next generation of the DreamCatcher breeding program. She will be bred to GCH TK Rock's Running Like the Wind in the Spring of 2013.

Bliss will resume competing in the Mid-Atlantic States, handled by breeder-owner-handler Don, once she has her pups.

BIS-BBE DreamCatcher's Believe in Magic (Magic)

Magic is a joy to have. He is joyful, playful, enthusiastic, energetic, loving, and drop dead handsome. What a combination in this young man. He is growing up to look a lot like his dad, BIS AKC, ASCA, CKC CH Horizon's Deja Blue. Magic was the only boy in our litter of eight pups (Dottie x Blue).

Magic was selected to represent the Australian Shepherd breed in the "Pets 101" section of Animal Planet's web site. What an honor to have our boy on the website. Of the 200 breeds featured in Pets 101, Discovery Communications chose 6 portrait sized pictures to decorate their 2nd floor lobby. Magic's is one of those chosen! Magic is, also, featured as the blue merle in the artwork of Sara England. True to his nature, Sara has a lampshade on his head in several pictures.

Currently, Magic is competing in the Mid-Atlantic States on a very limited. Still he is close to his AKC and ASCA championships
