Our dogs are just part of the family here at our home in Albany, Oregon. We and our seven children enjoy many activities with our precious canines. We have a hard time convincing them that they are not humans! Our dogs join us whenever we are on the property as guardians, vermin hunters, chicken herders, playing with the kids, go into nature for hikes and cross-country runs, accompany us on camping trips, participate in agility activities, and work on occasion in herding situations. They are also wonderful dogs indoor as part of the family and know the house rules.
