Although Border Collies are absolutely wonderful dogs, they are not like other dogs. They are extremely intelligent and are highly energetic which requires someone willing to provide them with stimulus and an outlet for their energy. Border Collies must be exercised daily - mentally and physically. They are happiest when they have a “job” to do, whether that be herding up cattle to playing frisbee. They are not a dog that can be locked up for long periods of time with no attention or they will become a walking disaster to your household. However they are very eager to please. Border Collies learn at a very fast pace and can take in just about anything you’re willing to teach them. Please be sure to research the breed if you are not familiar with them before you invite one into your family.
Our love for Border Collies started 18 years ago with our first Border Collie Freddy. Our dogs have always been a big part of the family. Temperament and disposition are very important to us when breeding and training our dogs. They must co-exist with children, visitors, other dogs, cats and horses. Therefore our goal is to produce a level headed Border Collie that will excel at anything you ask of them, whether that be herding, playing ball and frisbee, obedience, or just being a great family companion, with the ability to have that off-switch when it is time to come inside the house. Our Border Collies are extremely intelligent and loyal with an incredible athletic ability.
"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are."
