We at Irongate love our dogs and love this breed. The Australian Shepherd is such a well balanced multi-purpose dog. Not only are they fantastic working dogs but they make loving, loyal companions and guardians. Aussies are very intelligent and athletic and are easily trained. With appropriate training the Australian Shepherd will excel in all arenas; obedience, agility, conformation, working trials, or as a great family pet and ranch dog. Because Aussies are working dogs they are high energy and need lots of exercise and "jobs" to perform. Therefore, they are not for everyone. The jobs can be something as simple and fun as playing ball or fetch. The dog will see it as a job instead of a game and will take it very seriously. Irongate is dedicated to the preservation and improvement of this wonderful breed. We strive to produce dogs that conform to the breed standard and are able to perform the tasks for which they were bred. 


Irongate Australian Shepherds' facility is located 6 miles north of Collinsville on Vera Rd. Our address is 400359 W 3900 Rd, Collinsville, OK 74021. We would be pleased to show you our kennel and wonderful dogs.
