Why A Collie?
- Collies are a very versatile breed used as service dogs, obedience, agility, herding and protecting livestock. They can excel at almost any discipline you ask of them.
- Collies are very sensitive to their owners needs
- Collies have saved lives by alerting people of issues with children, livestock and older people. As seen in the old Lassie movies and dog show. They truly showed the true nature of a Collie.
- They will protect you if needed but can sense instinctly when the situation turns safe. So can be well trusted.
- Very gentle with children and other pets.
- Want to please
- Easy to train with soft handling and correction
Our first Collie was a drop off dog. We had him for 13 years. I had always wanted a Collie but growing up with Shelties I did not want difficult coat to keep up. I found with the Rough Collie once you deshed it in the Spring and Fall when the coat is shedding out. A good thorough brushing will get rid of the loose hair and then it is just a good weekly brushing to keep on top of it.
I am so thankful that I actually had this dog come to us. He was such a great gift. He is why we got into Collies. His name was Mogley.
We have one rough tri-colour female collie called Rain. Rain has done only one show so far but is young and her coat is slow growing. She has lovely movement and very sweet tempered. Loves to herd my husband and I. Rain is a lovely soft-tempered and easy going.
Rain is now breed and due on April 4th, 2021. We are expecting all colours. She is bred with Cooper so we will have both coat varieties. We have a waiting list started for some of the pups. This way we know some have secure homes to go to. An adoption form will be needed to to filled in and a deposit to hold a puppy at the time of birth. Until then just names and contact information is needed. Those on our waiting list will be contacted at the time of birth.
We have been fortunate to co-own Rain with Cardross Collies she is Beth’s breeding. Thank you Beth for trusting us to have your lineage. Registered name Cardross When It Rains. Sire Ch. Cardross Chain Reaction and Dam Ch. Uneeda Bare Naked Lady.
