About

Our Foundation Dogs: Hobie and Maverick

Marmonte Australian Shepherds is a small hobby kennel located in Carmel California.  We have owned Australian Shepherds since 2003, when we fell in love at first sight with a beautiful black tri puppy from Old West Australian Shepherds. Little did we know what adventures lay ahead of us as we grew to love this wonderful breed more each day!

Our dogs are first and foremost our pets and companions, and they share every aspect of our lives.  Whether it’s an outing to Carmel Beach (probably the friendliest dog beach on the West Coast, in one of the dog-friendliest towns in the country!) a hike up into the nearby woods, or a weekend in the snow at Lake Tahoe, we can usually be found traveling with our “pack.”

Our dogs are AKC and ASCA registered.  We currently train and compete in Obedience, Rally, Agility, and Conformation.

Please come meet the gang!
