About Us

Green Valley Australian Shepherds is owned and operated by Jeff and Emily Mabey. Our dogs enjoy a pleasant, fun-filled life near Salt Lake City by the 4 – Generation Mabey Farm in South Jordan. Between our home, Jeff’s Family Farm and Emily’s Family Ranch our dogs have ample room to run for lots of fun and adventures!

Emily was an avid horsewomen and has spent a lifetime in equestrian pursuits. At age 9 she began traveling the world for horse competitions and was intrigued by the number of Australian Shepherds at horse shows. Her inquiries guided her to the truth about this wonderful breed – they are loyal, gentle, smart, and beautiful. They make an excellent pet and friend.

For 9 years Emily bred Aussies at her family’s ranch in Texas.  When Emily married Jeff, she moved to Utah and put her horse pursuits on the back burner, to be a wife and mother to a young family. This is when we re branded our Aussie program to what is now “GREEN VALLEY AUSSIES”.  Jeff married Emily… and the dogs came with her.

Jeff and Emily love their Australian Shepherds and want to find others who enjoy and respect this remarkable breed. We have decided to keep our program small with intent to maintain the standard of the breed and only produce the best puppies possible. We place some dogs in Local Guardian homes to insure all the dogs in our program get lots of time, love at attention. We strive to find the perfect home for every puppy we produce here at GVAussies.

Jeff and Emily breed with the ambition to produce versatile dogs that excel in conformation and disposition. The health of the dog is a paramount concern and each dog in our program goes through extensive genetic testing prior to any breeding. All the dogs in our program has a minimum of OFA Hips/Pennhip, OFA Elbows and Patellas, OFA Eye certification, and the entire Aussie genetic panel for hereditary diseases. In addition, all our dogs are up-to-date on all vaccinations and deworming.

We enjoy training and socializing the dogs in our program. Our dogs compete in a variety of sports and competitions. Including, showing in conformation, agility, obedience, rally, dock diving and trick dog titles. We also strive to get the Canine Good Citizen title on all of our dogs.

The puppies we produce here at Green Valley Aussies are a huge part of our life. When purchasing a dog from us, you become part of our “family”. We are here 100% of the way and willing to answer any questions you may have about your puppy/dog for its entire lifetime. We strive to socialize our puppies to the max while they are in our home. Including with children, adults, dogs, other animals, loud noises, common daily occurrences.

We love our dogs and our biggest priority is providing them with a fun, happy, amazing life. They have blessed our family and families around the world tremendously!
