About Us

Lilyoaks is a very small hobby kennel in central Kentucky.
Our dogs and puppies are closely woven into our family.

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

I personally train and compete 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.

​I am a member of the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA)
and President of the Old Fashioned KY ASC Affiliate Club.
I am a member of the United States Australian Shepherd

Association (USASA), and I serve as Secretary for our local

AKC club, Mid-Kentucky Kennel Club.
