Welcome to Heartland Australian Terriers
My son and I enjoy our Australian Terriers, as our companions and show dogs. Once you have discovered this wonderful breed, the Australian Terrier, and have decided it is the right fit for your family, it is not always easy to find. We are very excited about our Oklahoma breeding program!

A Statement about Tails:
The first Aussie that I owned came to me with a tail that was already docked and it is possible that future pups that come into my program will also come to me with already docked tails as many breeders do this because they are following the AKC Breed Standard set by the National Club. That said I do not believe that docking is needed or desirable. I believe that it can be painful and is most certainly painful if done after the first few days following birth. I also believe that it detracts from the balance of the dog and presents them with additional challenges as they grow older. These challenges include balance, and communication with humans and other dogs. Because of this I choose not to dock the tails of any of my litters and include a clause in my contracts that precludes the families that get puppies from me from ever docking the tail in the future. Any puppy that you get from me will not have a docked tail and will get to keep what they were born with :).
