History of the Border Collie
The Border Collie originates from the hilly farming areas that form the border regions between England, Scotland, and Wales; such rugged landscapes saw the necessity for an all purpose stock and herding dog. Thus the Border Collie came to be. Intelligence and perseverance, speed and agility, and the ability to work tirelessly from the start to end of a job were the most valued assets of these dogs and form the basic characteristics of the breed.
It is our passion to promote quality sheepdogs that are healthy and fit for purpose! We breed working and performance Border Collies with great care and attention given to genetic and hereditary traits. This includes great working ability, structural stability, and temperament. You can read more about our Health Testing Here. Our dogs are bred for their brains and good nature!
We do not breed pups very often. We breed for our own needs on the ranch and/or for our next generation of trial dogs. All our dogs live in our home with us and all puppies are raised in the house.
We work our dogs on sheep and are trialing in USBCHA Sheepdog trials. We do also participate in some other canine sports as well including urban mushing, nosework, dock diving, and agility.

We put a great amount of care into raising our puppies so they will be ready for anything their new home can throw at them.
All puppies from a litter will be aptitude and temperament tested to see what fits them the best.
