Welcome

Colorado Kennels is a Hall of Fame ASCA and AKC kennel for Australian Shepherds.

Our kennel is one of the first registered kennel names in Colorado. Aussies have been in our Sorensen family since 1929. Sorensen’s Gunsmoke (photo above) was born in 1964 and then registered with ASCA in the Inaugural Stud Book.

Our child, Rebecca, at the time, was the youngest ever to win (age of 12) the ASCA ALL Around Jr. Handler award in 1984 with her dog “Sunny” Ch. Colorado’s Sunbonnet Sioux CD., STDs.  Our current Stud dog: Colorado’s A Boy Named Sioux aka “Jonny CASH” is part of this Sioux bloodline that we happily carried forth.

We continue to produce Aussies that do it all, as loving companions and as competition specialists.  Our clients decide what their needs are and we provide them the ideal puppy.

All puppies come with a packet that has a written guarantee, health record including (microchip, eye exam, vaccination records, fecal results, health exam, temperament test). Also included are feeding instructions, travel tips, articles on training, copies of their Pedigree, copies of all health clearances for their parents including OFA, eye clearances, paw print genetics and color pictures of themselves AND their parents.
