It all began back in 1970 when we were breeding
Quarter Horses and exhibiting in Halter, Western Pleasure and
In our travels with the horses we had admired the
flashy, talented herding dogs that hung out at all the horse
shows ~ the Australian Shepherds.
When we got "out of horses" in the
late 80's we started going to the dog shows, and after much
"looking and learning" purchased our first Aussie.
Ch. Leawen's Kit 'N' Kaboodle, who finished
her championship in '98, came to live with us in 1996.
Of course one Aussie is never enough, so she was
followed by the rest of the gang that are now the Copperkit
Our goal is to breed responsibly and produce versatile dogs of correct
type, with substance and sound minds in sound bodies.
