While health within the Border Collie is one of our main breed issues, we have been testing all our (breeding) dogs (besides ofcourse on Hip Dysplasia (HD) and annual normal eyetests (CEA, PRA, Cataract, Distiachis etc. inclusive glaucoma)) also for Trapped Neutrophil Syndrome (TNS) and Collie Eye Anomaly (CEA) through DNA in Australia and USA. The puppies we breed will be tested on TNS and CEA through DNA in case one of the parents has been tested as being carrier. We try to check the bloodlines of the dogs for genetic problems and our puppy buyers will get a lifetime guarantee on any heriditary disease. All the healthresults of our dogs can be found on the individual pedigree pages.
Also based on those results, we hope with any planned combination to reach our goal we are aiming for when trying to breed the most perfect Border Collie (at least in our eyes): a healthy dog with great working ability and will to please (for any kind of dogsport/work) with a suberb temperament and character and as bonus nice to look at. We are not selling our puppies just only as being a pet or showdog, we expect the new owners to know that the Border Collie is a true working dog and therefor we want them to get a job or compete in a dogsport like agility, flyball, obedience, tracking or SAR.

For a long time it was decided we were going to breed a litter with the look-a-like daughter of our Wicked: NOYTCB Jump Around aka Tic-Tac of owner Ron van de Hoorn. By the end of this year Tic-Tac will turn 5 years old, so this will be the final opportunity for her first litter while we dont like breeding the first litter of our girls too late. Tic-Tac is not only by looks an exact copy of her mother, also in working ability and character it is almost scary to see the huge resemblance. Little but with a huge character and attitude and a great will to please, she is the perfect agility dog for her very young handler who are together competing in grade 2. And also at sheep she shows her wonderful working ability!
The perfect partner for this very special litter we have found far away in Sweden, with our own bred Stisse (NOYTCB I want to be Red). Stisse is a stunning red/white male with an impressive coat, but his sort of showy look reveals a highly driven and powerfull working male who excells in every possible dog sport. Especially in herding sheep and ducks, he is showing a great passion and natural style and balance, but also in agility, obedience, doggy dance, freestyle training etc he proves the world he for sure can work! Through this link you can see him work in some of his activities!
Tic-Tac has given birth to 5 beautiful puppies: 3 girls who are all black/white and 2 boys (1 black/white and 1 red/white)!!!
For more information about the mating, pregnancy, birth and the first 8 weeks of our little ones, you can take a look here.
These stunning, very sportive and unique puppies are already spoken for by wonderful and active new owners!!
