Hello and welcome to Pernema Kennels, Where we breed Quality Australian Shepherds. Pernema Kennel was founded in 1999 it started with a co-ownership with the late Sandra McGommery of Epoch Aussies in Columbiaville, MI, she sadly passed away unexpected in 2005. So we carry on with her memory in each pedigree, and dog.
We are commitment to Heath, temperament, and breed type through our discriminated breeding, careful planning each breeding for the best of the breed, and health testing of all breeding dogs.
My goal is to produce animals that are a proud example of the breed standard, loving family members, but yet able to go and do as the breed was invented for. I hope to ensure that each puppy produced by Pernema lives a healthy and loving life with their new family.
Pernema Kennels foundation comes from Landmark Aussies. I would like to say Thank you and express my deepest appreciation and gratitude to Ann McCoy (Landmark), , for the great start in my chosen breed.
A Little About Me..
I grew up with dogs all my life - most were mixed breeds. I was not grew up in a dog show family but when I turned 13 I got my first registered dog - A Britney, he was from a breeder that was gonna put him down, because he was scared of gun fire, well we took him, and it all started from there and from there I was bitten by the "Show Bug". While I did not show him much in conformation, as he was scared of everything, other dogs,& people - besides family He was my start I had to drag my family to shows, it started with 4-H shows where I did good till I aged out then I started to go to AKC shows by myself
I am now owned by 12 dogs, 5 Australian Shepherds, and 6 Mixed Breeds, 1 Pug. All of my dogs that are not being shown or bred are spayed or neutered, as are all retired dogs. All of my dogs do some kind of dog sports, ranging from Obedience, Agility, Weight Pull, Rally, Lure Coursing, Barn Hunt or Conformation; some do more then one sport. While there are 2 other dogs at my house that belong to family members.
On 9-16-08, I was in a pedestrian-vehicle accident, that left me in the hospital for three weeks, and rehab for some time. I can not feel below my waist, at the present time. but have yet to let that bother me. I have found a chair, and am back showing my dogs. In Conformation along with the performance sports
I hope you enjoy my site, and any questions please feel free to contact me.
