About Us

Lilyoaks is a small program located in central Kentucky.

Our dogs and puppies are closely woven into our family.


Fueled by a desire for healthy, family-friendly, active dogs for sports and companionship, we have owned and loved Aussies since 2014.


Kayla personally trains and competes with our dogs in conformation, obedience, rally, agility, scent work, herding, tracking, lure coursing, and therapy work.


​We focus on contributing to the breed by selecting for versatility, excellent temperaments, breed type, and health.


Lilyoaks is honored to be recognized by the AKC as a Breeder of Merit

for Australian Shepherds.


Kayla is a proud member of the Mid-Kentucky Kennel Club, the United States Australian Shepherd Association (USASA), and the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA).

She also serves as President of the Old Fashioned KY ASC Affiliate Club,

and is an Agility Course Test evaluator for the AKC.
