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.

Due to burs being a problem on our farm we decided to have a Smooth Collie as our next Collie. Though they are busier they are easier to maintain if you go into wooded areas or are on a Country property. They have the same intelligence and good nature as the Rough Collies.

We have a new Smooth Collie Sable tri-factored female rough factored out of Dancer’s litter sister. Her name is Lady. She has done very well at the limited shows she has entered. Lady is the Granddaughter of our first Smooth bitch which we got from South Carolina. She is now a Canadian Champion. Receiving Select Bitch at the Specialty Show in Georgina last year first time back in the show ring after receiving her Championship.

We have also been blessed with Cooper a sable merle Collie, from Erin at Tir Nan’ og Collies. He is a super tempered dog and a good mover. He has done us well at shows. He puts his movement and temperament into his pups. Thanks Erin for trusting us to give him a good home. He has his CKC Grand Champion and also went Select at the same Specialty Show and US Champion who won over many specials.

Both of super out going temperaments and movement. Cooper is very laid back where Lady is more high energy.
