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.

Our first litter in 2015 is on behalve of our Belgium friends Cindy and Peter who really would like me to breed a litter with their special lilac white girl Maysie : Nice of you to Come Bye That'll Dough, combined with their also stunning male Jay : Jayjunior uit Huize Eigendroom. Of course this is an offer we could not refuse because both dogs are not only very healthy, having perfect characters but also a great working ability and lots of successes and speed in agility competitions, so everything I am looking for in the Border Collie.
Out of this combination we hope to welcome amazing agile and highly workable puppies in the colours black/white, brown/white, blue merle and chocolate merle who all are carriers of brown, blue and tricolor (tan markings). These puppies will of course be very suitable for agility but also for flyball, obedience, frisbee, doggydance etc but most of all, they want to be partners for life!
On January 11, 2015 Maysie has given birth to 6 gorgeous puppies: 3 brown white (2 males and 1 girl) and 3 blue merle (2 males and 1 girl)!
For more information about the mating, pregnancy, birth and the first 8 weeks of our little ones, you can take a look here.
We might have 1 puppy available for the perfect working/sporting home, so do not hesitate to contact us if you are looking for something unique!!
