Black and white and red and white Border Collies

About Us

We are a small breeder with only one current breeding girl. We have been providing BCs to top class owners for 10 years. We breed for temperament with an onus on the 'sporting BC' such as agility, obedience, tracking etc. We have had no interest in showing any of our dogs. Ziva, our previous breeding girl, now retired after three litters, is a track and search grand champion and competes at Masters level in agility, jumping and Rally O. She is a very affectionate, pretty BC, slightly smaller than the average BC and is, above all else a family member. Scout is our 'breeding girl, now she has 'grown up' herself. She is already well on the way to tracking and obedience titles and will be starting agility very soon. Small, like her mum, she has a lovely temperament and loves people. We are very stringent in choosing forever homes for our pups and all owners think they've got the 'best of the litter'. Scout has been tested 'clear' of all Border Collie related problems and her hip and shoulder score is excellent.

Our Breeding Environment

All our dogs have been indoor pets, living alongside various cats and rabbits over the years. We started off with the late, and very loved, Sally in 2004. She had our first litter in 2008 and we kept a red and white boy. We kept one girl [Ziva] from her second litter of 9 pups in 2011 [5 of whom are competing at a very high level in different sports], after which Sally retired. We socialise all our pups, using the 'Puppy Culture" way [google it] and bring them into contact with as many people and oddities around the place. They get a start in crate training and car rides before going to the forever homes at 8 weeks old. We have looked after several of our old pups when owners have gone away and they love coming to visit. We keep in contact with their new owners and are always willing to help with advice, or just a chat. After previous experiences with breeders, we have a policy of replying to all enquiry emails and spending the time talking on the phone to interested prospective owners. All of our dogs have been hip and elbow tested, with excellent results [Sally was the perfect score of 0-0. They have been tested for everything and show as 'clear'. Scout's results are also all 'clear'

    At present, all email enquiries will receive the following reply:
    This is a generic reply to all applicants at present. I won’t be getting into further correspondence at this point of time.
    These are the answer to FAQs:
    We won’t be having another litter until early 2022.
    The pups are brought up in the home, along with their dam.
    I will accept email applications from September 2021 onwards – at that time in-depth questions will be asked of anyone applying for a pup.
    Access to the pups and parents will be allowed when the pups are a suitable age.
    The litter may carry Red & White pups, but mainly Black & White. No other colours are in the line
    Ball park pricing for ANKC breeder BCs at present is between $2000 and $3000, so shouldn’t change too much by 2022.
    My breeding girl is CLEAR of all the negative health traits that BCs sometimes carry.
    The pups will be put on an ANKC limited register and owners will need to sign a non-breeding agreement.
    Regards

    These pups have been bred for their temperament and as 'performance' dogs. Applicants who intend to participate in any training of dog sports: obedience, rally, agility, tracking etc will be looked at favourably. Love and exercise is not enough for these dogs, they need to be constantly learning and have mental stimulation. They will reward you with their total devotion.
