At Hi Tide Kennels we are striving for the complete
Shepherd: excellent temperament, sound well-proportioned structure,
and biddable personality. Our dogs are active in Obedience,
Herding, as well as being family pets. We use only positive
and clicker training, and our dogs are fed a natural, raw food diet.
We are located in Victoria, British
Columbia, on the west coast of Canada,
and we are able to ship puppies across Canada and the United States.
Gin (a natural bobtail) had five puppies on March 6, 2013; they all have gone to their new homes. Two were natural bobtails.
Please see our Puppies page
for information on them or future litters.

The Miniature Australian Shepherd is a
scaled down version of the Australian Shepherd.
It was created by breeding together smaller Aussies, not by
cross-breeding with a smaller breed. Today's Australian Shepherds
in size from smaller working lines to the larger, flashier show dogs.
Interestingly, the Miniature Australian Shepherd is in many ways closer
in size to the "little blue dogs" which came with flocks of sheep to the
United States and later became known as the Australian Shepherd.

Our dogs are registered with the North American Miniature Australian

the Miniature Australian
Shepherd Club of America (MASCA).
