Border Collies

Border Collies are my breed of choice, having had at 5 in my life over the past 16 years.  I was blessed to share half my life with my first Border Collie, Shine, who I got when I was 16 years old.  I then had her daughter Asta join us.  Shine and Asta have since passed over the rainbow bridge, and I now have Ember (tri coloured), Blaze (black/white) and their daughter, Azmin (choc/white).

While we had a litter of Border Collie puppies in February 2020, we no longer have any entire bitches here for breeding.  

We do however have our boy Blaze who is available for stud to approved bitches only, see below for more information.

Border Collies are an amazing breed, very intelligent and highly trainable however they are traditionally bred to work, so anyone signing up for a Border Collie needs to do their research in to the breed to see if they can offer a home that a Border Collie needs.  In the wrong hands, or with insufficient training these amazing dogs can become difficult and have behavioural issues, and can often end up being rehomed once owners realise they have bitten off more than they can chew!

~~~ Brains & Beauty ~~~

Blaze is a Dogs NZ registered 2 year old Border Collie, proven stud dog, available for stud to approved bitches.

🧬 He is DNA clear by parentage however I have also sent off to get his own DNA tested and will have the results in a few weeks

👌 He recently had Pennhipp for hips and elbows done

🐶 Has sired 2 litters (8 pups in each) and produced black and white and chocolate and white puppies in both litters (first litter was to my tri bitch, pictured, second was to a chocolate bitch)

🏃‍♀️ We compete in agility together, he has excellent food and toy drive and is very keen to learn and work

👧 👦 Blaze lives with kids and loves kids and also loves all people - he is a very lovable soul ❤️

🐓 🦆 He is keen to eye the chickens and ducks that we have at home but hasn’t been used for stock work (but our neighbour said his daughter had a great work ethic when she went over and helped round up the cows 🙊😅)

🏝 Loves the beach, swimming, running and playing fetch

🚙 Located in Whitianga, Coromandel region at Shine Canine
