I can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Select Kennels. We brought our Mini Aussie puppy home after spending a welcoming and wonderful couple of hours at this beautiful property. Our healthy, happy puppy is trusting, gentle, curious, and confident ... it’s obvious that she’s been raised in a loving, caring, family environment. They are extremely knowledgeable breeders. The passion for their dogs is obvious, and the level of customer service is bar none. Our entire experience with Select Kennels was five star all the way. Thank you!

As a first time Dog owner, Dana guided me through every step of the process to make sure that I received a Miniature Australian Shepherd puppy that was the perfect temperament for my lifestyle. The care and love that they puts into raising their pups is obvious - visit Select Kennel and you will see for yourself.
I have the pleasure of recommending Select Kennels as a dog breeder. Dana is everything a reputable and professional breeder should be. Upon my first visit to their property I knew immediately that I would bring home that puppy! The environment is open, clean and family oriented. They sent us home with a wonderful care package and starter kit with all vet documentation and contact information. Once we brought our Aussiedoodle puppy home they were always available for our many questions. They are simply the best.
The Tober family
We visited a few breeders before we got our puppy from Select Kennels. They are exceptional dog breeders and you can see the love and care they give to all the puppies & dogs. They are very trustworthy with great service and everything went smoothly for us. They answered all our questions. We are so happy with our first puppy that we decided to get a second one. So now we have a wonderful Aussiedoodle Cocoa and our lovely poodle Owen.
Our experience choosing our new dog was fantastic thanks to Select Kennels. They made sure we had lots of information before bringing our boy home, and had continued to take great care of us by answering questions and providing information once he was in our home. I would highly recommend working with Dana if you are looking for a caring breeder who produces adorable, healthy and well socialized puppies.
The Mann Family
We adopted Macy from Select Kennels in 2017. Their property was immaculate, very welcoming and all the animals that were there were so happy and relaxed and had great demeanour's. They answered all of our questions and have continued to keep the lines of communication open with us for follow-ups or questions. I send them updates and pictures of how our beautiful pup has been growing.
Kim and Family
Select Kennels property is a beautiful peaceful space, where the dogs live a great life and are well taken care of. They have been available to answer any of my questions. We remain friends 2 years after I took home my kind, gentle hearted, loving Mini Australian Shepherd puppy home.
Dana was a pleasure to work with. My husband and I are both first time dog parents, but we felt very supported. They provided us with a list of articles to read and made us feel comfortable with asking questions. It’s clear that our pup was raised in a loving environment. I would recommend Select Kennels as a breeder to any of my friends and family.
Select Kennels matched our puppy perfectly to our family. We had never had a puppy before, and they have been a tremendous support since we got her. Feel confident in choosing a puppy from one of their litters because not only are they extremely knowledgeable but they also really cares about the well being of their puppies.
Select Kennels deeply cares about the well-being of their dogs and the owners who adopt them. They go above and beyond to ensure that any questions you have prior and post adoption are quickly answered which is so helpful as a new owner. Thank you!
We can’t say enough about how happy we are with our handsome little Aussiedoodle named Stanley. He is a healthy, happy, well balanced puppy and is so friendly with everyone he meets. Stanley just finished puppy training and he was the star of the class – he’s a very smart dog eager to learn and please. We knew as soon as we arrived at Select Kennel, we knew that they are a very caring, knowledgeable and reputable breeders. We were able to meet the parents and interact with the puppies – total transparency and that was very important to us. They have responded quickly to all our questions as well. We will be considering a second puppy from SK in the next year or so! We would wholeheartedly recommend Select Kennels.
Joanne, Andy and of course Stanley
Thank you so much for the care you put into your breeding program. We are so happy with our puppy and her temperament is wonderful. She has been very easy to house train and she gets along with our 2 cats and everyone that she meets. Thanks again for helping us pick such a loving puppy.
Laurie and family
I feel so fortunate to have found Select Kennels online and so should you if you're reading this! They listened to my needs and selected the perfect Aussiedoodle puppy, Gordo, to join me and my senior dog in my condo. He is the sweetest, snuggliest, smartest puppy and sooo chill! I recently took him on a 5.5 hour flight, then a train, and a ferry and he was content to just be with me. Perfect size at 18lbs, very minimal shedding, and very little barking. I highly recommend Select Kennels.
Dana was a pleasure to work with. My boyfriend was interested in getting a puppy and we felt like a Miniature Australian Shepherd would be a great fit for our Downtown Toronto lifestyle. We are very pleased we went to Select Kennels. A very seamless easy experience and they were great with providing adequate information. So happy Benson has integrated so well with our little family.
Alex from TO
We live in another province so were unable to go meet the puppies in person. Dana was able to help us pick the perfect puppy based on what we were looking for in a dog. Our puppy, Ellie (Toy Aussiedoodle) has a great personality. She adores people and loves meeting other dogs. She is a happy, cuddly, bundle of happiness!
Kim & Reid
We discovered Mini Australian Shepherds are very special dogs which require experienced breeders for healthy puppies. We were very fortunate to have found Select Kennels.
They have years of breeding experience and expert knowledge of the breed. Our new puppy has a lovely temperament and a healthy life ahead of him.
Beautiful kennel and wonderful experience! We highly recommend Select Kennels!
Brian, Kathy and our Chester
Our two little poodles came from this awesome breeder. Thanks Select Kennels, for the wonderful care, compassion and kindness in raising such a beautiful breed. I have been highly recommending them to all my friends and family. Thanks for bringing such happiness to our home, we love our little ones and will never forget your compassion!!! Sincerely Laurie, Ginger and Bailey.
Laurie from PEI
We had an opportunity to purchase a toy poodle from Select Kennels. We met Mist's parents and we are so impressed on their good and healthy nature. We have a quality dog from a good breeder. Misty has already brought happiness and love to our home. Misty had a good check up from our vet.
We could not be any happier or love our sweet Aussiedoodle puppy any more. From the moment we brought her home she was content, loving and very smart! She is very easy to train and so cute!! We are thankful for the way they raise and socialise their puppies. As a result, we have a very affectionate, well behaved new member of our family.
Cathie and family
Dana helped pick the perfect Miniature Australian Shepherd puppy for me. Looking back one year later, I couldn't be happier with my decision to go with Select Kennels. The temperament and disposition of my dog is outstanding. They deeply care about the well-being of all their pups and still after a year responds quickly to answer any questions I may have.
Mike & Watson
I can't tell you how appreciative we were with the time that you took with Rachael and I last weekend answering all of our questions and sharing information. We loved learning about your program and meeting the Aussiedoodle puppies, Loki and your moms.
Susan & Family
My Select Kennels Mini Aussie puppy just turned 5 months and has the been the BEST addition to the family. He's cuddly, loyal, playful, and very easy to train! If you're considering a puppy, please choose Select Kennels! Thanks so much!
Your love for dogs, knowledge and expertise lends itself to healthy, well-rounded, socialised pups. As a new ‘mom’, I greatly appreciate the time and communication you took with me both before the litter was born and ever since - meeting Cody’s Mom and Dad, during our pre-adoption visit, answering all my questions, the back and forth texts, etc. THANK YOU! Cody is so smart that we should have named him Einstein. In the first week he adapted right away to his crate, goes potty outside, sits and comes on command. We can't say enough about your amazing dog program.
Dana is a kind hearted individual who took the time to make sure we found a puppy that suited our family needs. My son has extreme allergies and finding a puppy that wouldn't cause a reaction was going to be hard. They truly want to find the right home for each puppy and they continue to offer guidance to help with the transition. Thank you!
Shannon & Family
My family and I visited Select Kennels and brought home the most amazing Aussiedoodle puppy. I named her Poppy and she became my service dog. Poppy is my best friend and lifeline. She alerts me when my heart rate changes, and prevents fainting/medical episodes. She runs to get help for me when I'm down, picks up things and hands them to me and so much more. This was achieved with a lot of training and her natural ability, calm demeanour, and overall balanced disposition. I see now that she inherited a lot of these traits from her parents and I recognise a lot her behaviours, from when I met Lucy (mom) and Loki (dad). Poppy is my life saver!
Michaela & her service dog Poppy
From the moment you walk up to Select Kennels property you can absolutely feel the love for all the dogs/puppies. The care for the dogs goes beyond words. From visiting the dogs to selecting your perfect pup, They are so helpful, knowledgeable and kind.
Thank you so much! Our little 'Friday' is such a great Aussiedoodle pup. We know he came from the best!
The Anders family
Our little poodle Tina is a complete joy, smart as can be and easy to train in all areas including pottie training. Tina has adapted well to our home without any issues. We are so grateful to have Tina part of our family. Breeder Dana is a pleasure to work with and you can see the pride and love she has for her pups and dogs! We would definitely recommend Select Kennels!
Mark & Marlene
I contacted Dana explaining that our youngest was diagnosed as autistic and that we were looking for a puppy that would not only be a family pet but hopefully be a puppy that would be a good emotional support animal for our son who is the youngest of four. Dana was confident that any of her puppies had the temperament and personality to fulfil what we were looking for. We visited Dana to meet her and her dogs and were very impressed with what we seen, the dogs were so sweet and gentle. We ended up getting the perfect Miniature Australian Shepherd puppy from Dana, that we named Meria. Meria is great with the kids and is especially patient with our youngest. I can't say enough good things about Meria and I would recommend Select Kennels to any family.
We have just adopted a 5 Year Old Miniature Aussie named Emma from Dana and what a wonderful experience we are having. She has adapted so amazingly well and is giving us so much love we don't know what to do with it all. Dana felt Emma would be a good fit for us as we have 3 cats and she was absolutely right - everything is going so smoothly. Emma's temperment is perfect and she is an extremely smart dog. We are so glad we adopted an adult rather than a puppy at this stage of our lives. We would highly recommend Select Kennels for anyone wanting a puppy or older dog!
Marlene & Wayne
We are thrilled to have adopted an adult dog from Select Kennel. Annie is a healthy, happy Miniature Aussie Shepherd and a perfect fit for our Toronto lifestyle. She offers us the pleasures of dog ownership without the messiness of the puppy stage. We look forward to many years of companionship.
Thank you Dana, we are so happy with our new addition to the family. Cinnamon has adapted to our routine very well which maybe took a month. She is very smart and was very easy to potty train. Her temperament is wonderful. Love's people and has been a joy to our family. In the morning she grabs me with both paws around my one arm and will not let go, that's her morning hug. She is truly a joy! I would recommend Select Kennel to anyone who is looking for a dog. Dana you were very helpful and answered all my concerns.
Our little Pippin is now 9 & 1/2 weeks old. He has adjusted very well and he is already potty trained, sits, leaves it, crate trained and he loves his bed. He is so smart! Thank you for helping choose Pippin for us. You definitely know your dogs and you have picked the perfect puppy for us. He is everything you said he would be. Dana, we can't thank you enough.
Roxanne & Family
We purchased our Toy Poodle Misty a year ago from Select Kennels, who are wonderful and caring breeders. Misty was only about 3 months old when she kept bumping my breast which I thought was odd. Not knowing at the time I had breast cancer. A few months later I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Misty knew and is always in tune with my well being. Since surgery recently and after healing, Misty has never bumped me again. Misty is our precious gem and is so smart.
Thank you Select Kennels for breeding such a perfect dog for us.
Gary & Brenda
Thank you for your expertise in helping us re-home our beloved Australian Shepherd, Gypsy. Health problems necessitated the decision to have Gypsy re-homed. We worried, if we would ever be able to find a good loving home for her. We trusted your professionalism in this matter, and were truly impressed by the service given to us. Gypsy has always been and is, a happy and loving dog. Dana, you are truly a caring, reliable, trustworthy and dedicated breeder. We will highly recommend you and Select Kennels to anyone looking for an adorable puppy / mature dog, for themselves or their families.
Clem & Janine Bilodeau
Dana was kind enough to board our 5 month old, Miniature Australian Shepherd puppy Chester for us while we were selling our house. During that time Dana took the time to support his development and the results were amazing. We jokingly call her the Chester (puppy) whisperer. We are continuing to use her training methods going forward.
The Durant Family
We purchased a beautiful female mini aussie from Dana three years ago. Moko has brought so much joy in our lives that we decided to get another puppy from them! There are so many scams nowadays but I knew I could trust Dana. Dana is wonderful and extremely patient. I love that I can always contact her whenever I have any concerns or questions (even after three years!) and she is always willing to answer as best she can.
