High Altitude Kennels is a family business, focusing primarily on mini and toy Australian Shepherds. All of our Aussies are registered with the ASDR. We are located in Alturas California, with a few acres to call our home.

A number of years ago, we adopted our first Aussie, Taylor, and he became our 4 year old son's best bud. When Taylor died a few years later, we thought it would be neat to sometime raise and sell this wonderful breed. Here we are!

All of the Aussie parents in our breeding program have been genetically tested, to ensure healthy pups and minimize genetic disabilities. Feel free to ask for details about the testing process and the test results.

Aside from the dog aspect, our main priority with these kennels is to teach our children godly values, responsibility, and have fun in the process. As a family, we strive for the health and well-being of all our animals from birth until they leave with their forever family - and beyond.
