Who we are:
Sabella Farms is owned by Bryce McKinley and Erin Miller.
Based in King Country on a 120 acres farm, we breed and work Clydesdale's in harness and under saddle and do some occasional Clydesdale breeding.
We also breed German Shepherds. Erin and Bryce have been farming for most of their lives and breeding dogs for almost 25 years with Erin's family breeding quality German Shepherds for over 40 years.
Our passion is to breed Clydesdale's that conform to breed standards, with good feather, bone and size and German Shepherds that are healthy, happy family dogs that come from well tested parents.
We believe very strongly in breeding dogs that are from parents that are very well tested and cleared to be bred from. This is not done by all breeders and is something that is extremely important to ensure people are getting a healthy happy pup.
You don't need to buy a dog from us but you do need to make sure you get a pup that has parents that have been well tested.
We focus on breeding really kind, sweet dogs that are suitable for family and farm homes. We know that your dog is a huge part of your family and our goal is to breed dogs that are happy to thrive in any home. A lot of our dogs go to homes with kids or on a farm or doing agility work, being a support dog in hospitals and more.
Our dogs are smart and easily trained and are just really nice all around dogs. That is our main focus with what we do and we take a lot of pride in that. We do not focus on breeding pure shepherds, our main focus is breeding flat backed, well tested, kind natured dogs that go to good families.
All of our breeding German Shepherds are hip and elbow scored and comprehensibly DNA tested.
Erin has actively shown Clydesdales in hand, in harness and under saddle. We generally break in all our horses ourselves to saddle and harness which includes chain work, ploughing, log skidding, hay making, harrowing, working in pairs and more.
Working heavy horses and farming has been in Erin's family for over 100 years.
