*~* KC Assured Breeder (Inspected) *~*
First & foremost my puppies are bred for health, temperament & to be "Fit for Function"
Mac & Grace have produced the most gorgeous litter of puppies; 1 boy & 3 girl's, all black & white, classically marked & absolutely gorgeous!!
Please read the following carefully before contacting me (single line enquiries are automatically deleted);
The puppies are;
- Kennel Club registered
- Genetically Normal/Clear for CEA/CL/TNS
- Litter Eye Screened & Health Checked at 6-7 weeks
- BAER Hearing Tested
- Wormed counted (& wormed to date if needed)
- Microchipped & registered with PetLog
- Provided with 4 week's free Petplan Insurance
- Sent to their new homes with a very full & comprehensive puppy pack which includes a Contract of Sale plus a minimum of 2 weeks worth of food
Both parent's are fully health screened, both are genetically DNA Clear/Normal for CEA/CL/TNS, have below breed average hip score's. In addition the Dam is also DNA tested Clear/Normal for the MDR1 gene
These puppies will be suitable for the show ring, obedience, agility, flyball, Cani-X, HTM, herding or search & rescue as well as very active pets. These puppies are not suitable for first time dog owners & will only be placed in experienced homes. These puppies will be very high drive & are sure to excel in everything they do. Although they'll make super companions, they're not suited to a life on the sofa!!
My puppies are born in my bedroom & lovingly reared in my home where they get used to all of the familiar sights & sounds of every day life with daily handling from birth with of course lots of love & cuddles. Once the puppies open their ear's I begin to play the Scary Sounds CD every day which has an assortment of sounds from fireworks & thunder storms to various traffic sounds. The puppies are socialised with my other dog's & my Siamese cat (who loves to play with puppies!!). The puppies are socialised with children. Due to where I live the puppies also often get to meet cows, sheep, goats & chickens. The puppies also have regular trips out in the car to get them used to travelling.
My puppies are weaned & reared onto a natural / the BARF (Bones And Raw Food) diet. I encourage prospective new owners to research the diet in advance with preference given to those who will continue with the diet ~ it's really very very easy & the healthiest, most natural diet you can feed!! (95% of Borderpride owner's have continued this way of feeding & will testify at how easy it is!! (I recommend reading "Honey's Natural Feeding Handbook" - available from Honey's Real Dog Food - a copy is given to new owners - there are also lots of natural/raw feeding groups on Facebook) Remember, dog's are carnivores & in the wild most certainly wouldn't graze the grain fields!! (Although dog's have evolved over time to give us all the various breed's, their digestive system certainly hasn't changed!!)
If you're interested in one of my very precious puppies then please email me in the first instance telling me about yourself, your family including any children (or plans for any), any working commitments, your home life, garden, your understanding & experience of the Border Collie as a breed, whether you have any other pets & the sort of life you can offer one of my very precious puppies. Please be aware that I have very strict criteria when it comes to placing my puppies & prefer that they go into experienced, active/dog sports homes. If you've never owned a dog before, have young children (under 10) or work normal full-time then it's very unlikely that I will allow you to have one of my puppies.
**I offer lifetime back up & support for my puppy owner's**
I recommend that you fully read the "Puppies" page on my website which is a little more extensive than here; www.borderpride.com
Please note that single line enquiries will be deleted!! If you don't have the time to send me all of the information I ask for then you can't possibly have time for a puppy!!
**Please note that having a litter of puppies is time consuming which means I don't always get online everyday. If you don't receive a reply to your email within 3-4 day's then please call me.**
