Our Story

It began with a dog...

My name is Taylor Gassert, and I am the owner of Timber Run Australian Shepherds. I have been showing and training dogs for over 14 years, and I have been training and showing Australian Shepherds for over 5 years. I grew up with a passion for dogs, and at a very young age my parents bought my very first dog, Timber (Shetland Sheepdog) . I wanted to show him at our county fair and did quite well. I was only able to show him for 4 years, because he was plagued with severe health problems that prevented him from showing. My family was like most people, we didn't do much research on the breeder we got our dogs from; we just went out and bought one. All of our beloved pet's suffering could have been prevented if his breeder had been responsible with their breeding practices. Our next dog had the same sad fate. When I grew older I decided I was going to research my next puppy's breeder. Willow our first Aussie, came from Ryan Creek Aussies an AKC Breeder of Merit. She has been one of the best quality dogs I have ever owned. To prove her quality I showed her in AKC confirmation gaining the acknowledgment of some of the top Aussie Breeders in the Country. Breeding top quality show dogs as well as loyal happy healthy quality pets is very important to me.
