Client Testimonials - Australian Cattle Dogs

It is sad for us to see our puppies go but we don't feel like we are loosing a puppy, we are gaining a family! We love updates on our puppies and look forward to photos and keeping in touch. Part of bringing a Lakylu Cattle Dog into your home is reassurance that we are hear to help along the way. We enjoy brags, photos and we want to know when you might have a concern or hiccup in your training too. Keeping in touch is important to us as breeders!

Paige: Girl (Dam: Reign, Sire: Tiger)

Paige is the best puppy! LaKyLu Kennels knew what I was looking for in an ACD and since they are raised within their family, handled every day they get to know the personalities of the puppies. They picked the sweetest little pup for us.

~Melinda W. from Texas

Lexi: Girl (Dam: Reign, Sire: Bruno)

She (Lexi) was bought for my wife and grand daughter, but ACD’s have a way of picking there owners, she chose me. My constant shadow, wants to do every thing I do and go everyplace go, even rides on the lawn when I mow. She is asleep in my lap as I write this. The only dog we have ever owned that has complete run of our home, we have 2 other ACDs. Not enough room her to tell all about the joys this little dog has brought to our family in such a short time. Now, about the breeder. LaRena is a wonder person, she goes above and beyond when it comes to her dogs and working with kids. Just look at her website and you will see. LaRena, keep up the good work, God Bless.

~Kimberly C. from Texas

Cinch (Dam: Reign, Sire: Tiger)
Cinch is doing marvelous, he is an amazing pup. Great temperament, very good protective instincts. He is everything we were looking for. He's is a great fit for the family. And ornery as all get out. We love him very much and couldn't be happier!!! Thanks so much!

~Bill J. from Nebraska

Rip (Dam: Kacey, Sire: Tiger)

He's fun for sure... he sits stays and lays down. Good on a leash walk s on the left stops and sits next to you when you stop. He doesn't drag you. Stays at the door till you enter and invite him in. We both love him!

~Tony and Kristie L. from Utah

Katie (Dam: Kacey, Sire: Tiger)

Our Katie is doing great. She is such a sweet baby and her and the big fur babies all live each other so much already. Bella treats her like her own puppy. It is stinking adorable.

~ Sherrie F. from Texas

Shnurok (Dam: Reign, Sire: Tiger)
His name means lace in russian. He is a great dog! He is growing like a mushroom.

~Maks M. from Texas

Boomer (Dam: Kacie, Sire: Tiger)

We feel so lucky that we discovered LaKyLu Kennels. After searching for ACD breeders all over the USA and trying to find a responsible dog breeder with merit; we knew LaRena was the breeder for us after our first conversation. She continues to exceed our expectations and has been more than helpful with questions along the way.

That brings us to Boomerang aka Boomer The Zoomer! He has been the most wonderful addition to our family. When they call ACDs Velcro Dogs, this is no joke- Boomer is always right behind one of us and is the cutest little shadow I could have asked for. He the textbook definition of an ACD: smart, alert, very eager to learn, and a bundle of energy. He has great confidence and has greeted every new person with tail wags and requests for tummy rubs. He is a master at puzzles and we already know he will love hiking, running, and playing frisbee.

We cannot thank you enough for helping choose the most perfect dog for our family.

Hugs and woofs from California!
~Phoebe Sewell

Freyja (Dam: Roxy, Sire: Tiger)

We started looking for a red heeler puppy in Texas through an AKC referral from a friend and were fortunate enough to find LaKyLu & LaRena. She is a very friendly and professional breeder. We have had nothing but positive experiences with her! She was willing and able to answer all of our questions and had no problem with setting up several calls with us and even helping out via text. We had consistent communication with her both before and after getting our gorgeous puppy girl. It is very clear how much she cares about her animals and the homes they go to. She gave us great recommendations for care for the puppy with tons of pointers to puppy training programs and resources which have been invaluable! Freyja is the best dog I have ever met. It was obvious from the beginning that LaRena had been training and working with her since she was born, and we were able to keep up with that training by learning from the training program LaRena uses. Freyja is almost 5 months old now, and we are so impressed by how she is growing both physically and personality wise. She is so sweet, loving, happy, and very intelligent! We live on a ranch and have her outside with us all the time. She absolutely loves it and seems to be happy to handle anything! She loved the snow during the storm and plays in the creek and river when she gets hot. We have horses and alpacas that she is doing really well around. She is even friends with one of the alpacas and they will give each other "kisses" when they first see each other each day.
I can't imagine having picked a different puppy or a different breeder. I highly recommend LaKyLu and am sure we will be looking for another one of her pups at some point!
