All our breeding dogs are eye and hearing tested, hip scored and DNA tested Normal (or Normal by parentage) for CEA, CL and TNS. We will only use stud dogs that have been hip scored, eye tested and DNA tested Normal for CEA.
Our puppies are reared in the home and well socialised to give them the best possible start in life.
All our puppies are Kennel Club Registered, eye and hearing tested and insured. They will also be microchipped before leaving for their new homes. Pedigrees will be endorsed "Progeny not eligible for Registration" and "Not eligible for export pedigree". These are to protect the puppies and the future of the breed. The breeding restriction will be lifted on production of an adult eye certificate and below average hip score.
If you are interested in having a puppy from us, please send an email in the first instance telling us a bit about yourselves, if you have kids please tell us about them, your home and garden, work commitments and what sort of home you can offer, whether you're looking for a family companion or interested in one of the many dog sports Border Collies excel at. There's no right or wrong answers, so please be honest as it will help me guide you towards the right puppy for you.
A lot of time and commitment has been put into rearing and socialising our puppies and we only want the best for them so please do not be offended if we ask you lots of questions.
We provide a life long commitment to all the puppies we breed, and ask if you are no longer able to keep the dog for whatever reason that you contact us first.
We only breed occasionally, usually only when we want a puppy for ourselves, so you may have to wait over a year for your Elthea puppy.
