In addition to breeding quality dogs, Cailleach offers several other services, including training, handling, and on occasion, boarding.

For a list of our standard services, please check our fee schedule and contact Susan ( or Sarah ( for more information.

Here at Cailleach Aussies, we know that training and handling packages aren't a one-size-fits-all solution, so if you don't see what you need on our list, feel free to contact us anyway and we'll see if we can put together a custom program that will make you (and your dog) happy.


When it comes to training, our beliefs here at Cailleach are “use what works.” What we’ve found, most recently, that works the best is a blend of methods, mostly using positive reinforcement. A godsend for us has been the discovery of SATS, a method of communicating with any animal, not just dogs, and a training method that can be used compatibly with other training techniques, games and exercises you may already use.

Though an accomplished handler, Sarah is still working her way through college and tends to stick close to home. She doesn’t go to too many shows throughout the year, keeping it easier to concentrate on her studies.

Here at Cailleach we accept a small number of boarders when space and our schedules permit. (Some of our intensive training "boot camp" packages also include boarding.)
