"Certik" 2003 - 2016

(Petersranch Black Bear X Four Bar X Sidney)


We bought Certik ("Little Devil" in Slovak language) in January 2004.
Certik was one strong, healthy and very intelligent male who loved people and small children. He greeted visitors with a Frisbie in his mouth. Certik was almost 21" tall and weighed close to 50 pounds. He had a very nice head with beautiful brown eyes, scissor bite and higher ears that would fall forward. His black coat was of medium lenth without any copper. Certik had just a little white on his toes and white strip from his chin to his belly.
Certik was very fast, focused and agile canine, jumping 26" in USDAA agility. He was AKC, ASCA and CKC registered. He was healthy throughout his entire life and died at the age of 13 due to enlarged prostate complications (he was intact male). Certik was a thinking dog, always ready to do anything he was asked. He was also a powerful working dog with tons of natural ability and presence. But he also had a very good OFF switch. He would never bother livestock unless he was told. His herding ability were amazing, he was as strong fetching dog as he was driving dog. Certik always worked quietly and low with a lot of eye. He would bite heads and heels if needed. He was also outstanding in Agility, Obedience, Rally, Tracking and Frisbie. This unique dog will be always remembered for winning the coveted 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 Most Versatile Australian Shepherd award (and front cover of Aussie Times), the achievement that no other dog in ASCA history was able to accomplish. Certik is now HOF sire thanks to his pups all over the world. We still have some frozen semen from Certik.

Misko (Mike in Slovak language) is line-bred Hangin Tree dog
that showed interest in working cattle when he was barely 4 months old. His sire is our Certik and dam is Hangin' Tree Trouble. Two blue merle females "Trouble" and "Dolly" were shipped to me from Rising Sun Farm, MN to breed to Certik in early 2007, but only Trouble ended up with puppies at that time. I was not quiet sure if I was ready for another working dog, but when Misko was the only puppy left from this amazing cross, I decided that he should come and live with us. Misko was such a lovable, happy-go-lucky and animated puppy. He always made me smile watching him play and bounce around. Misko loves everybody, he is such a sweet boy!
But he is a very tough working male with a lot of natural talent, eye and grip to work any type of stock. He is around 19" tall and weighs maybe 45 pounds, smaller but powerful package and very enjoyable working team player. He has nice rich merle coat of medium lenth, one blue and one mostly brown eye, beautiful ears and scissor bite. He has only a hint of copper on his rear legs. Misko, just like his dad Certik, would bite heads and heels of cattle. He doesn't bark when he works, instead, he is fast and focused using fair amount of eye. Misko is outstanding in anything and everything he does. He is Herding, Agility, Obedience and Supreme Performance Champion, just like his dad Certik. We also used to compete in Tracking and Rally in both ASCA and AKC trials.
I took both, Misko and Certik, to the 2011 ASCA Nationals in Wisconsin. We had such a good week filled with many trials. We competed in everything in advanced levels, qualifying in every single competition. The more we competed the more I noticed that Misko was unbeatable and by the end of the Nationals, Misko was awarded the 2011 Most Versatile Australian Shepherd award and appeared on the cover of Aussie Times. Certik was 8 years old at that time and placed 3rd in the Most Versatile Aussie competition. I was so proud of both of them. These two are simply the best of the best!
Misko is retired and neutered now, but we have some frozen semen stored from him. He is still strong, healthy and ready to play Frisbie day or night. Misko is AKC and ASCA registered, his Hips are OFA Good and Elbows Normal, Eyes clear.

Dory came to us from Aerie kennel near Durango, CO.
Her sire is well-known Magnum, smart and handsome male that I had honor to meet and even compete against with my male Certik. Certik and Magnum look almost like twins when it comes to looks and intelligence.

Dory's exceptional qualities include her head, front and rear, neck, shoulder and level top line. She has excellent structure, good moderate bone and outgoing attitude.

Bambi came to us from Arizona, Sand Ridge Kennel.
She is a wonderful and beautiful addition to our Aussie family. Bambi is a stricking light red merle female with perfect white trim and brilliant copper.

I train and compete with Bambi in Herding and Agility. I used to show her in Comformation also. Bambi finished her Herding Open Trials in Ducks, Sheep and Cattle before she turned 2 years old with HIT Aussie. She naturally rates her stock and is very biddable with a strong will to work and please.
When it comes to Agility, Bambi is fast, focused and precise. She has no problem to run right next to me or 20 feet away. Her favorite is Gamblers Agility. Bambi finished all her Open Agility titles in ASCA.
Bambi has loving, confident and outgoing attitude. She loves people and children. Bambi loves playing with toys and her favorite is fetching Frisbie for me or my children. She runs fast, jumps high and is accurate.

Turkey Run Singing Rosita OTDd STDsc CD REX RS-O RJ-O RG-O (AKC RN)
"Bella" DOB 2/22/2022

(AKC CH Serendipity Sticker Shock X Sand Ridge Bambina @ Turkey Run OTDscd RJ-O RG-E RS-O)


Bella is a gorgeous and very correct red tri female that I picked from Bambi and Bling breeding. I own and trialed her mom "Bambi" in Herding, Agility and some Conformation. Bella's dad "Bling" is a very handsome male, an AKC Conformation Champion. He is owned by my friend.
Bella has a beautiful rich and healthy coat that I find easy to maintain. She is 20 - 21" tall and weights around 50 pounds, nice medium bone, beautiful movement and very athletic body. I started working with Bella and training her daily as soon as all her littermates left for their new homes.
We worked mostly on basic obedience, focus, patience, and positive experience. I have been taking her to local parks and various places and noticed that she enjoyed being in different environments.
Bella is attracted to people and other dogs, she is very friendly and playful with children and any dogs, big or small. She does not have a mean bone in her body.
At 6 months I took her to her first ASCA Rally trial and she qualified in both runs with high scores.
By 10 months Bella learned most of her Obedience excercises all the way through Utility. I think her favorite is Scent discrimination (Utility). We started with basic Agility at 6 months and by 10 months she was running Agility course in my back yard (low jumps) and doing all 12 weave poles no matter where I was standing.
Having ducks at home, I was able to see that Bella has natural herding insticts and we started working with ducks and learn about teamwork, flanks and driving. Her excellent obedience has been very helpful here. I also took Bella to see sheep when she was 10 months old and her instincts kicked right in and she started working them without any hesitation.
I introduces Bella to tracking in my back field before she turned 1. We will continue with tracking at our local park as soon as she is ready for vast open field. If we don't train or learn something new, we play a lot of Frisbee. Bella, just like her mom, is becoming an excellent Frisbee catcher.
I am struggling to find something that I do not like about Bella. Bella loves to train with me, she is a very driven, confident, outgoing, smart, biddable and pure pleasure to work with it. So far she exceeded all of my expectations. Bella is a true and outstanding representation of a Versatile Australian shepherd. Most of our training is done by me in our back yard. I am hoping to compete with Bella in Obedience, Rally, Herding, Agility and Tracking. She is an Aussie who wants and can do it all and reminds me of my first working Aussie Certik or his son Misko, who wanted and did it all, from my back yard all the way to many ASCA Nationals wins.
