Kellie G.: I bought a Blue Merle male from Johanna @ High Desert Aussies last October. I absolutely LOVE him! His name is "Duke". Johanna made sure that I knew how she feeds her mother dogs so they have healthy babies. And then how she feeds her puppies so they have a healthy start at life! I have seen her facilities and I was very impressed! It is kept very clean & the dogs are very happy! They are her furry kids! The momma dogs even go to the groomer for spa day before they have their puppies! I am very happy to say that I am waiting on my second puppy now, a little girl. I highly recommend High Desert Aussies!
Melissa Olson: I met Johanna in August of 2014 and put a deposit down for my puppy who was born in April of 2015. Through that process, Johanna allowed me to come out and visit her and the dogs as often as I wanted. Johanna has a passion as a breeder and her Aussies are happy and live in a super clean environment. When the puppies were born, I came out every week to see the growth and interaction of the puppies with their mom. During this time Johanna talked about training, health, food and the care she takes with the puppies. It was great to come see my puppy each week and be able to hold her and feel the connection with her. As you can see, I have a Red Tri. She is the sweetest dog. We love her. I highly recommend that if you are thinking of getting an Aussie, call Johanna and go visit her facility.
Joan & Don K.: Thank you for doing this for us.Mandy was born 4/13/2013 and is from Woody and Jesse. We drove from Portland to Bend the end of May 2013 to meet Mandy. It was a very busy day at High Desert Aussie with something going on with the horses but Johanna took all the time we needed to talk about Mandy before we started home. She was very helpful and let us look around at the other dogs. It was a wonderful day and one we will always remember as the day we got our Mandy. Mandy is an awesome dog and extremely smart. We have to spell out some things if we don’t want her to know what we are talking about. I have since called Johanna a couple of times with questions and I always get a helpful answer. I would recommend anyone wanting an Aussie to go to High Desert Aussie. It is the best experience we have ever had when picking out a new puppy. Mandy was very well adjusted for only being 6 weeks old. She just slept on my lap all the way home and didn’t even cry at night.
