About us…
June 2014
Summer 2013

We are located in the Finger Lakes region of New York.   I have owned golden retrievers since  May, 1989.  The first dog bearing the name Rustic in 1996.  The kennel name I chose was “Rustic”.  I chose this kennel name with the beautiful color of the Golden Retriever.

We are members in good standing with the Golden Retriever Club of America,  United States Australian Shepherd Assoc.,  Dog Obedience Training Club of Rochester, NY, Inc. and Western New York Golden Retriever Club.

In the Fall of 2006, I entered into the world of the Australian  Shepherd (better known as the Aussie).  I have always admired the Aussie and I decided that I wanted to training and show a different breed.    The Aussie is a little different than the Goldens, but are very devoted to their owners. I look forward to many years of enjoying the Aussie as I have the Goldens.

We actively compete in obedience, rally, agility, field and the breed ring.  While, I also do enjoy competing in the other venues, my first love will always be obedience.

Thank you for visiting our website.
