 PLEASE Read before deciding on if a Border Collie is right for you.
  There are  important things to consider before you get a border collie puppy, rather than perhaps any other breed.
First, (and perhaps most importantly), they are very bright and  sensitive to human reactions- especially voice levels of calm vs agitated, kindness vs anger,  stress  they will always  pick up on. If  you have  ‘family issues’ a border collie will not help-  the exact opposite will occur- any stress inside the family will be picked up by the pup/dog and leave it in a world of uncertainty about what behaviour is appropriate. They love being part of the whole family so a broken unit means a border collie ‘will’ take sides.
 It is important my pups are homed well. They will require time & energy put into them for the relationship to work. They really can not be left at home all day on their own. If they are, they can become naughty. It is not their fault – they need stimulation and company & get bored if they don’t receive that. They do need off the lead exercise. A run at the end of the day is not enough for the bright active Border. You have to be a confident and active person to own a Border Collie. I am happy to talk and discuss with you if a Border collie is the right choice for your lifestyle. I do need your honest input for me to help and I will give you my honest opinion. They are not the match for everyone..
If you are after a calm relaxed dog DO Not look at getting a Border Collie. Most of my Guys are more laid back than the working lines but they are still border collies at heart..
My dogs have had DNA tests done in Australia for a healthy  genetic breeding practice.
Pups will all be clear of CEA, CL  & TNS through parents (or grandparents) & will have had their health check &  first vaccination at 6wks old.
All pups come with NZKC papers & an endorsement (NOT to be bred from) unless discussed. 
  Ohh & if you own a digital camera & enjoy using it, that is a thumbs up from me!! Just don’t forget to use it & send the results to me!!  please email with  a detailed story of yourself.

    Hi Catherine.
    I have just read your update & see Bruce & Shiraz are expecting pups soon. I will DEFINITLY be interested in a dark red wee girl from them. i just love Bruce & he shares my desktop with Shiraz so I can’t believe you have mated them. Its meant to be as like I said to you I am 66 so this is my last forever friend & 3rd border collie. My cat has just gone to sleep on Friday at 20 years old & my foxie is 18 this year & my little pom is 10 so they are all getting on. My house is owned by my pets. I live on my own now & this will be the first pup I won’t have to leave to go to work so its very exciting. As this is Shiraz’s first litter I hope all goes well & will be thinking of you all when they are due. Please keep me updated. Many thanks.
    Janet Young New Plymouth
