The Puppy

The Puppy


Very few things in life are more appealing than a border collie puppy. Starting with a puppy might not be the right decision for everyone, but there's no doubt that training your own puppy from scratch can be one of the most rewarding of experiences when things go well--and it's almost enough to make you forget how frustrating it can be when things go badly!

A few major caveats: I don't know many of the people whose names and services I'm listing on this site, so I can't vouch for much of anything at all. I'm relying on the general intelligence of those using this web site to do the research and make their own judgments when speaking to breeders and agents--read all the relevant articles below before starting to contact those with dogs for sale. Please keep in mind at all times that the fact that someone appears on this page is no guarantee in and of itself of quality. (Similarly, I may well have left out some excellent breeders through some oversight.) I will continue to list all breeders who answer the questions I wish to post about their animals and their breeding programs, unless I have first-hand information about something nefarious about them. (Anyone who wishes to be listed should
email me.) Please ask lots of questions of your breeder or your dog's previous owner before you bring your new border collie home, and be aware that any reputable breeder is going to be asking lots of questions of you
