out with our Border Collies. We selected them for their intelligence
and abilities, in addition to their beauty. We have chosen to only have
working Border Collie lines. When looking for the lines we would use, we found that
we wanted to strive for the true working dog with the ability
to be a family dog also. It is with this mind set, we have
worked towards a dog that will work or trail when we ask,
but who will also quit and chill when we stop that
will go out and bring in the stock, then come in and be
a couch potato for the evening
looking for a breed to work with us with the goats, we
came back time and again to the Border Collie. The name of
the Border Collie comes from the time when the breed was
developed along the Scottish/English "border";
adding the word "collie" means herder in
Gaelic.; hence, border herder or "border
border collie is well known for their natural herding
abilities, biddable nature and outstanding intelligence.
These 3 key points in the border collie makes it a truly
wonderful dog to work with.
|During the time that
these dogs were used along the border lands, they were bred for
"Function, not form" And " Brains not beauty". Though
they are a truly beautiful dog, this breeding for intelligence and ability
makes the appearance of the border collie wide ranging. From slick and short
to rough and long coats, to colors of every range. From the standard black
and whites, to blues, reds, lilacs, to merels of the blue or
red. Contrary to what people have seen, they also come with blue eyes
or flecks of blue in their beautiful eyes; or odd eyed. You will see some of
our Border Collies is odd eyed.
As different as they
are in appearance, so to, they all have different personalities, and different
"drives". There are low, medium and high drive dogs. The high
drive dogs would be considered your serious herding dogs. These dogs are ones that require allot more attention
than your low to medium dogs. Though the low to medium drive dogs are still
great dogs and can still herd sheep, ducks or geese and play ball; they tend
to not be as intense as high drive dogs.
dogs we have seen are starting to show the ability to go
out and catch a Frisbee, to agility, to bringing in the
stock, then come in and enjoy their family. We have found
as long as you incorporate them into your life and spend
time with them, they make excellent family companions.
We are pleased to see
the development of the abilities to work and chill in our
dogs. Let us know your situation, so we can try to help you
pick the puppy that is right for your needs.
We currently have registered working males and females in our program and
have pups available. We appreciate you visiting our Registered Working Border Collies and if you would like more information
