A Little More About Us
Bantam's Miniature Bull Terrier puppies have the advantage of being raised by and live in the same home as the incredibly dog-savvy Australian Shepherds of Avid Australian Shepherds. Maddie of Bantam and Dani of Avid share the same passion for breeding, raising, and training sound minds as well as sound bodies. We are fortunate to have the resources to raise our puppies in a positive, fulfilling, enriching environment alongside appropriate adult dogs who can teach the young ones how to speak each others' language, interact fairly and appropriately with each other, and learn to resolve dog-dog conflict as well as form relationships and learn how to incorporate different play styles and improve their own individual communication skills. We feel extremely grateful to live with these two surprisingly compatible breeds and share our lives with some of the best examples of our own respective breeds. To add some icing on the cake, Dani of Avid Aussies is also a certified trainer! A graduate of the Karen Pryor Academy and carrying the KPA-CTP credentials, she specializes in puppy training and basic manners/behaviors classes, and happily dabbles in training for other sports/events such as rally, agility, nosework, herding/stock dog etc. Maddie is the assistant for Dani's formal training classes and they share the same methodology and are always learning from one another and staying active in the continued learning of the science of canine behavior and training. The Bantam gang is fortunate to have the consistency and support of the Avid crew. To have a whole house full of the same outlook on dog breeding, raising, and training is something that we are extremely proud of.
The Avidly Bantam household is more than happy to answer any questions about training, puppy raising, competing, showing, etc. that you may have. Follow links to our Contact page to submit a contact form.
