Above...2 very happy boys with their welcome home sign that they made for their new little friend.

This is what my couch looks like when I try to update the website.  Lots of helpers.  That are really not that helpful.  It makes it a much longer but far more enjoyable task.  Everyone tries to help, they get offended if I decline their offer to help.

November 26th, 2021...our AVAILABLE page has new updates...feel free to click on the boys to the left to take you there...

We have available puppies...ready to find their families now!  Please check out the 'available' section and feel free to contact me about these 2 handsome, wonderful little chaps.  


For any Red Deer or Calgary, AB families, we are offering delivery on November 28th, please ask for details...

Our dogs are first and foremost our family pets.  They are not kennel dogs, they have a good life of running, playing, quadding with us, horseback riding with us and swimming at the lake.  When we go camping, we usually have 2 or 3 (and puppies if at that time we do have puppies).  They come into the house for playtime and take turns indoors regularly on cold days (well, pretty much every day over the winter...my kitchen looks like a massive dog rug as they all loiter on the floor).  They are kenneled in our heated shop nightly.  In nice weather, they get to enjoy their choice of XL dog runs that are decorated with agility structures, dog houses, chew bones and balls (they actually get to choose their spot, it is funny to watch them select a location for the day).  They are normally out in the yard with us when we are outdoors.  Being that we are in the country, we have a very active, outdoor family life.  


Our dogs are chosen for their laid back personality, willingness to learn and loving personality.  Most all of our mini or toy australian shepherds will have the same interest and ability in physical activity, however they don't 'need'  to work such as many mini or standard australian shepherds tend to.  They are a herding dog, we however like to produce puppies with reduced herding instinct as most of our families don't have cattle in their back yard.  If you are looking for an active and able working dog, we do have a couple of females that will produce what you are looking for, just ask.  We do have a couple hundred cows here on the farm, the dogs have the instinct to work and willingness to try, just don't 'need'  to.


We are happy to offer unbiassed testimonial, we have many very happy adoptive families that offer feedback, do feel free to ask to join our facebook page to review any feedback.


We work with the 'puppy puzzle'  stimulation techniques that help your puppy adjust to new stimuli with confidence and an open mind.  Puppies that are handled with this type of stimulation are reported to be 35% smarter and more trainable than puppies that have not received this type of stimulation from a very young age.  As well, we introduce cats, other dogs, livestock, chickens, pigs, multiple ages/sizes of people and children to our puppies.  Visits to the elementary school, seniors home, soccer field are all very normal for our puppies, it is important to help build a well rounded, confident individual.  


Our dogs have went on to be show dogs (top MASCA Canadian/USA dual champion female 2011), service dogs (autism, hearing impaired), frisbee (disc) champions, agility, flyball and working stock dogs.  Our adult dogs are registered with MASCA or ASDR, some dual registered.


We offer a health guarantee and lifetime support of your doggy family member.  And always welcome your dog back to our farm if in the future a situation may arise that makes it difficult for you to keep/care for your dog.  We will often times do an evaluation, socialization and training, screen and fit the dog with a new suitable placement.  

Pictured above...Cherese and Tsu competing at the Hyperflite Skyhoundz World Championship Qualifier summer 2015, it was a very windy day, some of the throws got a little displaced.  She earned a place in the Worlds Championship competition in Tennessee, USA. 

Ravine Acres was established in 2007, our dogs are now 5 or 6th generation Ravine Acres dogs.  We offer a lifetime guarantee of guidance and aim to fit each one of our puppies into the right family situation in regards to mental and physical needs, not just any family. 


If you are interested in more information, please do tell us a little bit about you.  Location, lifestyle and personality preference of the puppy that you are hoping to adopt.  We aim to find each of our puppies the perfect spot and will not be adopting to those that do not have the lifestyle that will be required by this breed.  We are very good at matching your personality to the pup that you will be adopting.
