Our breeding goals are simple, we want to breed healthy dogs with a great character and a big "will to please".
For us the border collie is an allround-talent who is beside the passion for herding as well interested in several dogsports. Even if we are happy to see our dogs working on sheep, it is important to us that they can easily adapt themselves to every other sport. In the litters born here we give our best to let them acquire all the skills to become good sheepdogs.
More important than winning championships and titles is a beloved home where our puppies can grow to amazing happy dogs.
Breeding is not always easy, every breeder has his own standard and goals. Dogs need to be seen objective with all their strengths and weaks. Decisions have to be made with as much (actual) knowledge about lines and health risks as possible.
Therefor all the dogs that we use for breeding are tested in all aspects of health that we consider to be important.They have been DNA tested for TNS, CEA, IGS, MDR1, NCL, MH, HUU, DM ,RS, BCG and SN. We are open minded for new tests in the future. Furthermore our dogs are x-rayed for HD, ED, OCD (SD) and spine, they get their regular ECVO eye test and gonioscopia. Our kennel will never intentionally breed with two carriers of a disease.
For the present we will only breed with dogs who have HD-A or B and are tested for ED/OCD ( outside studdogs not always )
