DJS Aussies (Dianna Jaynes) &
Hybris Kennels (Desera Jaynes)
A little info about us. My husband and I have been raising Australian Shepherds since 1999. This also led us to Miniature American Shepherds. Having raised them for years prior to being recognized by AKC and Listed with CKC. Our love for the breed has led us to them all. Our first female was a Blue Merle Australian Shepherd. She was and still is my personal learning experience. As a joke I always say that your first Aussie is your worst Aussie. They are an excellent breed. The reason for me saying this is because they are so smart and highly intelligent. If you don’t train them guaranteed they will train you. Even if you think you are not being trained.
Desera is our daughter. She has been raised with all of our dogs since birth. Always loving and playing with them and showing lots of interest. Desera started showing our dogs in conformation when she was just 5 years of age. How time has gone by from that little girl with pig tails to the well rounded young handler that she has now become. Sporting and Conformation she excels in both worlds with these dogs. Now that she is all grown up she has ventured to strive for excellence in everything that we have done in the past. She knows the breeds, understands the breeds and is the future of where these breeds will move to long after we are gone. She has stepped up and became Hybris Kennels. You will see both of these kennels listed on this site. We help one another out with everything when it comes to the dogs. Here future is very big and bright as I take a step back in many ways and help her move ahead and take over everything one day. I couldn’t be more proud or ask for anything better.
All of our puppies are raised completely in the house. We pride ourselves in happy confident playful puppies. My help is always available in raising and training your new puppy. They are highly trainable and very diverse in what they can do. They are used in pretty much anything you can imagine. The intention they were originally bred for is herding. They have since been used as companions, seeing eye dogs, drug sniffing canine’s , rescue dogs, alert dogs for epileptic patients, therapy as well as pretty much any sporting event.
Most of our puppies are for non breeding pet homes. There are a select few that we keep ourselves and some are also in there forever homes on a co-own/foster home bases. Only the best of the best are placed on Breeding contracts. We breed first and for most for health and temperament. The dog can be absolutely correct in every way but if you can’t get near it what good is it!
Next in line is sporting, and then conformation. If they possess all of the above then we have the best. This is ultimately what we are striving for. Highly trainable, intelligent, companion that can be used in Conformation, herding and sporting events, as well as anything else that may be thrown their way.
We welcome all questions. The more that you know the better it makes you as the handler/owner and the better it makes us as a breeder. I like to work with new handler/owners to ensure that the puppy is doing everything that I expect it to and is being everything that you expect it to be. If you would like to know more about us please browse our site for a listing of individual dogs and expected litters and dates of events that we will be attending. We would personally like to thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit more about us and taking interest to learn more about the breed that we know and love.
