Watch for Bourdain's daughter "Tess" in the special's rings in 2017!

AKC/ASCA CH Gaitway's Little Black Dress CA CGC "Tess"



Nestled within the picturesque Monterey Peninsula on the Central Coast of California, we are producing top quality Australian Shepherds with excellent temperament for those that appreciate high caliber Australian Shepherds. Although a small hobby kennel, Chances'R turns out ASCA and AKC champions, many titling in conformation, herding, obedience, agility and rally. We continually strive to breed the most versatile Aussie that can do it all!

Australian Shepherds have been recognized in the group at the Westminster Kennel Club a total of six times. We are very proud at Chances' R Aussies to own the dogs winning three of those six placements.
