Lake Michigan Aussies

Rick & Marcie Boomsliter formed Lake Michigan Aussies several years ago when we fell in love with this highly intelligent, versatile breed. We wanted to see other people be blessed by healthy, happy Aussies as they have been. We did tons of research and discovered a number of attributes that we wanted to promote the breed.

About the Breed

We learned a tremendous amount about how to handle, show, train and breed these precious dogs.

Our Aussie Family

After all is said and done, we are proud to share with you our Ausssie family.

Our Place

We live in Michigan, near the Great Lake of Michigan. We recently relocated a little over an hour inland in a lovely farming community called Mendon, Michigan.
