CURRENT LITTER   |   PLANNED LITTER

I highly recommend scrolling down this page to review our puppy information and how we raise our puppies!


 

The Border Collie is an active, intelligent breed who needs excessive training, attention, and stimulation. My dogs do not come from high drive, off-the-wall type of lines and I do allow my puppies to go into pet homes, with the understanding that he still needs plenty of mental and physical exercise. While I expect my puppies to have good off switches, some will be more lower or higher drive than others. Any Border Collie is a fun, active companion who can also do well as performance or working dogs.

I breed a couple of well thought out litters each year and I look to place puppies in the best possible homes with the understanding that a puppy is a LIFETIME commitment. I reserve the right to refuse any sale. When contacting me, please provide me with information about yourself and what you're looking for! Breeding my dogs is a fun hobby and I do it solely for the enjoyment of my dogs and the breed. I need information from you to be sure the breed is right for you, and to help find the right litter or puppy to place with you.

Puppy prices:
If you are interested in a puppy please email us with a detailed message about yourself and what you're looking for, we will not respond to one-liner emails if you don't let us know you are a good candidate for one of our puppies.

Pet price with limited registration: $900-$1200
 
Our prices reflect on the quality of our dogs and the money, time, blood, sweat, and tears that we put into training, raising, showing, and health testing them, along with many other things including puppy vet check-ups, registration, etc.
 
 
We are happy when we have families come back for a second dog from us but we are usually very adamant on selecting the opposite gender for a second dog. While we never anticipate any issues, any dominance issues generally tend to be male/male or female/female and this way it just avoids any potential future issue with this.

We love to help and mentor new comers to the show ring. We do not sell our puppies with breeding rights unless you are an established breeder!

We offer visit days several times throughout the year so people can meet the dogs and get to know the breed. Please contact me for this information as these are scheduled days that I invite people to my home.

All of our puppies are raised in my home and are well socialized and well adjusted to typical going-ons of a house hold. We use Early Neuroligical Stimulation from 3-16 days old, along with the "rule of 7s" from 4-7 weeks old. The "rule of 7s" include introduction to at least 7 new people, walk on 7 different surfaces, been to 7 (safe) locations, stayed in a crate at least 7 times, etc). This helps give a puppy a good jump start to many basics of training and transition into a new home.

 

All puppies receive their first vaccines, dewormings, and a vet check before going to new homes. Each puppy will go home with a vaccine record and either a puppy report card of health certificate from the vet. Puppies are AKC registered with limited registration along with being microchipped before heading to their new homes. The price of puppy includes all of the fees for registration, microchip, and chip enrollment. Everything is sent in by me to ensure this is all sent in and taken care of and the new owners don't have anything to pay for or worry about doing. All of our breeding dogs are health tested, results are available here on my own website & the OFA database. Copies of the original testing information is also sent home with the puppies in their puppy packets.

After puppies are born, we do not pick puppies until they are 6-8 weeks old so we can evaluate drive and temperament. We try to match puppies based on what is best for each individual family. I try to have more than one for you to chose from, but I will always do what is best for the puppy and each family.
