Our dogs are involved in conformation showing, obedience, agility, school visits, endurance tests, herding, and flyball, and make wonderful companions.
Stud DogsAt Bluegrace, we have more champions than any other breeder in Australia, and more than most pwd breeders around the world. However, from our champions there are really on a few that we consider good enough to breed from. If you are interested in using one of our males, please send us through a picture of her, her pedigree, her health stats, and we will endeavour to match you with the most suitable of our champions only.
In all honesty, it's important to tell you this: All of our males have faults. Remember, when you select a stud dog, you must understand what are their strengths and weaknesses. There is no such thing as a perfect stud dog. We have extensive experience in the breed, and often help people locate the right stud dog or puppy for them. Recently I had a visitor from the US discussing pwds, and together we were able to carefully analyse each and every one of our dogs, being fully frank about our dogs. Now that's the sort of breeder you want to find, regardless of the breed. For the most part, you'll need to build up trust with a breeder. I've met people in this breed (and other breeds) that will swear black and blue they have the best of the breed type of that dog in the world. I even met someone who told me that his pwd was the best in the world, and had he attended the US specialty he would have won it. I saved my hilarious laughter until I got in the car, and had nothing to do with them from that point on. Seriously folks, choose a breeder who has had a reality check at least at some point in their life. One thing I like to find is someone who is humble about their knowledge and their dogs. They are the people who will go on to further improve the breed. Those breeders who think they are at the pinnancle (mind you, it was this guy's first pwd that he was talking about, which was, by the way, never used at stud) have only one direction to go from there. Find a breeder who is seriously interested in helping you improve the breed. For a list of breeders I recommend in my country, please click here
For practicality, remember we are based in Australia, and whilst we can organise frozen semen, we are more likely to help you find a suitable stud dog closer to you if you are overseas.
As a starting point, it's important to recognise that the PWD is a very rare breed in Australia. In addition, our stud dogs are only available to pedgree PWD bitches, and of course, are not permitted to be cross bred with any other breed (please labradoodle people - stop emailing me!).
Any of our dogs whether directly owned, bred, or co-owned have the following rules. It's important that these rules are adhered to prior to thinking about using any of our dogs at stud:

Humans need to learn how to treat dogs they way they need to be treated, and stop treating them like furry humans.
