In 2006, we got our first Border Collie. We’ve set to breed quality, sound, and versatile performance AKC/ABCA dual registered Border Collies. We highly focus on health, drive, work ethic, trainability, temperament, and structure so our dogs will excel in canine performance sports. Although our dogs are incredible athletes, they'll always be wonderful family companions first and foremost. Our dogs have been trained in obedience, disc dog, agility, flyball, dock diving, and as trick dogs. We do stunt dog shows, performance demonstrations, and half-time shows for sport teams. We've been on FOX Carolina and NBC... read more.
The Border Collie was bred on the borders of England and Scotland as a herding dog used to move different types of livestock safely across the region. On average, Border Collies are medium sized dogs with a double coat that come in smooth, medium, and rough and in a variety of colors. They generally live in between 10 to 17 years of age. Being very athletic, Border Collies need physical exercise on a daily basis. Considered to be the world's smartest breed of dog, they are highly intelligent and trainable. Border Collies do best when they have exercise and mental stimulation (sports, working, service)... read more.
Many dogs sports on recreational on a dog's original job for what it was bred for. However, there are other sports that have been invented just for fun but still have the competitive edge and human plus canine teamwork needed. Canine sports are great for Border Collies because it gives them a job and the physical exercise and mental stimulation that they need. Aside from herding trials, Border Collies excel in agility, obedience, disc dog, flyball, dock diving, and canine musical freestyle (just to name a few). With a variety of sports and the Border Collies being so smart and athletic, many sports are available to play... read more.
Since 2006, we've done nothing but dedicate ourselves to the wonderful Border Collie breed. We've spent countless days and nights studying the Border Collie and bloodlines worldwide. Upon selective breeding, we strive to produce puppies that we believe will improve the breed as a whole. We've used imported bloodlines from the United Kingdom to help widen the gene pool here in the United States. Our goal is to produce intelligent and eager to please healthy puppies with stable temperaments, working ability, athletic structure, and high drive (but with a off switch) that can excel in all performance venues... read more.
We believe that a dog's diet is their first foundation to a healthy lifestyle. Our dogs are currently fed 4Health, an all-natural and holistic food made in the United States - no corn, wheat, or soy. Unlike some other pet owners, we believe in rotating protein sources. Our dogs have less of a risk of developing allergies and are able to absorb more nutrients from their food. Since dry food alone can't give a dog everything it needs, we also add a variety of supplements to our dogs' food to support athletic builds, healthy coats, and joint protection and recovery. Sometimes, we like to feed a raw diet to help give an extra boost... read more.
The Border Collie breed has some congenital diseases that have developed over the years before testing became available to help prevent these diseases. We're very strict about not breeding our dogs unless they have had minimal health testing for Collie Eye Anomaly/ Choroidal Hypoplasia (CEA/CH) and hip dysplasia (OFA radiographs). Health testing is imported to make sure that none of these diseases are passed down to two carriers are crossed to produce effected puppies. We have a two year health guarantee on all of our puppies from their birthdate. We want you to feel confident that you're getting a healthy pup... read more.
All of our puppies are sold on contracts no matter where they go. We have two types of contracts: non-breeding and breeding rights. Puppies on non-breeding contracts are still registered and not required to be spayed or neutered. However, they puppies are ineligible for registration. If a owner wants breeding rights, they may be granted but a new contract must be signed. For breeding rights, all puppies are sold on co-ownership contracts. Breeding dogs must be a minimum of two years of age, OFA tested Normal (Fair, Good, and Excellent), and CEA/CH Normal or Carrier. We must approve any breedings... read more.
