Flying D Kennels is a small family owned breeder of Australian Cattle Dogs, German Shepherd Dogs & Miniature Australian Shepherds located in NW Oklahoma. We raise beef cattle as well as breed purebred herding breed dogs.
Herding breeds were bred to work with all types of livestock, protect the farm and perform any task a farmer needed done. They have to be tough enough to deal with a difficult cow, gentle with the farm's children and smart enough to carry out tasks independently but willing to listen and obey. They are bred to be biddable with sound conformation. We love them for their energy, focus and intelligence.
Why? My aim in breeding my dogs is to protect and preserve the temperament, appearance, soundness, history and purpose of the breed for current and future generations. We strive to meet breed standards. We are very passionate about health testing and responsible breeding. When breeding, we select our matches, with the goal of weaving those pedigrees together, preserving these dogs in the best possible predictable form that we can bring to families. Because that is our ultimate goal, to produce a happy and healthy family of dogs, with long lives true to breed type to match whatever your goals may be: dog shows, family pet or dog sports.
We do only a few limited breedings per year per breed. We do not sell puppies year round and most often you will have to wait for one of our puppies. They are worth the wait! The American Kennel Club recognizes Flying D Kennels as an AKC Bred with H.E.A.R.T breeder of Australian Cattle Dogs.
