    ALIYAH AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS

  • WHO WE ARE

    Aliyah is a small hobby kennel located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I am dedicated to conserving the versatile Australian Shepherd, focusing on maintaining the breed standard, with emphasis on excellence in temperament and structure. Approved in 1998, "Aliyah" is a permanently Registered Kennel Name with the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA). "Aliyah" is also a registered kennel name with the American Kennel Club (AKC), and I am proud to be recognized as an AKC Breeder Of Merit.

  • I Challenge You

    by Lynne C. Skinner

     

                    I challenge you...to find tolerance instead of criticism. Even with a breed standard, we all have our

    own preferences, which are not necessarily better than someone else's just different.

     

                    I challenge you...to find respect instead of contempt when a breeder says that they have hip, eye or other

    problems show up in their line. Unless we can identify problems, we cannot prevent them from destroying our breed.

     

                    I challenge you...to find the courage to protect this wonderful breed by honestly and openly offering information on possible genetic problems that you find in your bloodlines. By getting this information quickly to research, it will be just that much sooner that new tests can be developed to identify these problem areas quickly and effectively.

     

                    I challenge you...to embrace the fellowship of our breed clubs. We are a diverse group with different ideas on many things who have come together for the love of this breed. Listen to one another. Learn from one another. Bond together to educate all who ask about this unique breed...for WE are the guardians of its future.

    "Skyy's" show career has been a little slow to get off the ground, but she is coming along.

Bred at the second pre-show!

Handled by Reggie Moorehead, at the BRASC 2017 March shows, in an entry of 26, "Juli" took WB/BOW for a 5 point major for her first ASCA points. Then in August, Olivia Persinger showed "Juli" to WB/BOW for a 5 point major, and also went Best Junior Handler with "Juli"!
