|Welcome to Valaurora Kennels!|
Home of Valaurora Rat Terriers and Collies!
We have several planned litters of rat terriers for this year. Take a look at the Upcoming Litters folder!
We may also have a litter of collie puppies this year! Tentative plans in the works! Contact me for more info!
Also, the home of Dixieland Walking Horses!
I am located in rural central Georgia.
All of my Collies have eyes checked by a certified veterinary ophthalmologist. They are all registered with AKC.
All of my Rat Terriers are AKC-FSS and UKC registered.
My dogs are beloved pets, and they are treated as such. I spare no expense in providing them with the best of accommodations, nutrition, and veterinary care.
I go the "extra mile" to make sure my dogs are safe, healthy, comfortable and happy. They are my beloved pets FIRST and they are all spoiled rotten.
All of my Collies and Rat Terriers are kept up-to-date on their vaccinations and heartworm and parasitic preventive.
I hope you enjoy looking at my Collies and Rat Terriers. Both breeds are GREAT with people of all ages, including children! They are SUPER SMART for those who may be interested in a herding/working/agility dog. If you are just interested in having a perfect companion for your family pet, they are thrilled to be that, too! If you are interested in showing, I can help you there too!
My dogs are an important part of my life. I'm still not sure who enjoys our time together more--us or them. I've owned several other breeds through the years, but this breed outshines them all for being a PERFECT FAMILY PET!
Dogs are not my whole life but they make my life whole!
I have several young adult terriers available!

I also have several collies available! Check out the Collies folder!

Often called "a big dog in a small package", the sturdy Rat Terrier is renowned as one of the world's most wonderfully versatile breeds of dog. Not only is it an exceptionally loving, even-tempered and eager-to-please little family companion that enjoys other pets and children of all ages, and it is small enough to be a perfect lap dog, but also it has an incredibly alert, highly trainable mind, and it has retained its rugged heritage with the ability to live every bit as athletic a lifestyle as that of its owners.
All of my Rat Terriers have standing ears. Rat Terrier puppies that are born with full tails or with natural bobtails of an undesirable length are docked (according to standard) immediately after birth, and their dewclaws are removed at this time as well. All colors in the Rat Terrier spectrum are represented including tricolors and bicolor in black, blue, chocolate, and isabella (a.k.a. "pearl") as well as sables in tan, blue (a.k.a. "blue fawn"), chocolate (a.k.a. "high red chocolate"), isabella (a.k.a. "red fawn") and the yellows, which are apricot, lemon, blue apricot and blue lemon.
All of my Rat Terriers are AKC-FSS and UKC registered. Since most of my Rat Terriers have some amount of the Decker bloodline in their pedigrees, I do keep a record of those individual percentages as well.
I will be showing my Ratties in AKC events as soon as the breed gains full registration status with AKC.
Occasionally I have Rat Terrier puppies and retired young adult Rat Terrier dogs available to approved homes.
My Rat Terriers are beloved pets, and they are treated as such. I spare no expense in providing them with the best of accommodations, nutrition, and veterinary care.

Dixieland Walking Horses (June 23, 2009)|
|Welcome to Dixieland Walking Horses! |
Along with my collies & rat terriers, I also breed, ride and love naturally gaited Tennessee Walking Horses, Spotted Saddle Horses and Racking Horses.
I don't show my horses. Just trail ride occassionally and love them! They are as spoiled as my dogs!
They are all naturally gaited and are not stacked! They have no artificial gaiting devices used or applied to them. Their smooth gaits are bred in, not nailed on!
I use Natural Horsemanship training methods with them to produce sound and sane horses.
They are never ridden before they are 3 or 4 years old. I believe in giving them time to mature, physically and emotionally/mentally.
I hope you enjoy the pictures! I'll be adding more later!
