AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOGS
"WE ARE DEDICATED TO PRESERVING THE INTEGRITY OF THE PUREBRED AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOG. THE DOGS ARE OUR PASSION NOT JUST A BUSINESS"
Lorraine Norris & Charlie Gerster
2728 Elm Tree Road, Lindsay, ON Canada K9V 4R1
Home of the incredible, fun loving, hard working Australian Cattle Dogs for over 20 years! The breed is our passion and we are dedicated to preserving the integrity of the purebred Australian Cattle Dog. Our small kennel is located not far outside the town of Lindsay, Ontario just north of the small hamlet of Cambray. Our property is special, very natural with trails through the bush to explore, a beautiful big pond to swim and a variety of wildlife.
Affectionately known as the "Doggy Hilton", our kennel is nestled amongst the trees beside our pond. Our dogs and pups are an integral part of our house where they relax by the fire on a cold winter night or cool down after a swim in the pond by laying around on the deck on a warm summer day.
Our dogs have been placed all over the world where they work livestock, perform in obedience and rally trials, compete in conformation, have fun in agility, search and rescue, are registered therapy dogs and also enjoy being just plain "couch potato" companion dogs. We stand by our dogs and offer lots of support to those who have dogs from our kennel or others that are in need of advise and understanding of the breed. We also try to help other ACDs not from our kennel, in need of new homes.
Dogs have always been a part of our lives when we were growing up and will always continue to be. We have owned purebred dogs for over 25 years, first the Alaskan Malamute then fascination for the ACD. Thatís when it all started and still continues.
We have been actively showing in conformation for approximately 25 years and have taken a keen interest in obedience, agility and herding as well over the years. Dogs from our kennel carry various tittles with their names, but it is not a title that makes a dog. What you put into your dog is what you are going get from him or her.
All our dogs are also herding instinct tested. All parents of our pups have specific health certifications. Our puppies are raised with the utmost care and consideration. Prospective puppy clients must answer lots of questions! Enjoy our website, there is lots of information and pictures for your viewing pleasure!
Occasionally we may have an older dog from our kennel available to place in a forever home. Please click on the Puppies icon below.
Click on the Rescue icon to view other dogs not from our kennel but are also in need of a new home.
With 20 years and beyond of first raising purebred Alaskan Malamutes and then in 1992 with the Australian Cattle Dog coming into my life, the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) has now recognized myself, Lorraine Norris as a Master Breeder. This prestigious honor involves over 20 years of membership in good standing with the CKC and other accredited dog fancier clubs; having bred Best in Show, Best in Show Specialty or high in event performance dogs; having bred and titled at least 20 conformation or performance dogs and most importantly health tested our breeding stock. We follow the Breeder Code of Ethics as a member of the Australian Cattle Dog Club of Canada. Regardless of a title achieved or the biggest ribbon, the most important thing is bonding and working with your dog as a team. Nothing makes me happier than seeing pups I have brought into this world in the most loving and caring homes.....thanks to all!
