Popular Border Collie Breeders
There are so many things to consider when searching for a good breeder of Border Collies!
First and foremost, the basics are most important, and before you respond to any advertisements from Border
collie Breeders, you should ask yourself and the breeder the following questions. A good breeder will be able to
answer these questions, and if not, perhaps they aren’t who you should be getting your puppy from!
The questions you need to ask, are:
What size (height and weight) is the most ideal for this dog breed?
Does this dog breed need to be brushed or combed for more than once a week?
Should I give this dog breed some professional help in clipping or grooming?
How much grounds needs to be covered in daily exercise?
Would a one-mile walk be a lot or not enough for this dog breed?
Is the dog breed you have selected one of those breeds that are subject to any genetic diseases?
Have the appropriate tests been conducted to avoid those diseases?
Secondly you need to make investigations, you should know that reputable breeders of Border Collies
are more than happy to tell you about their dogs, environment and breeding conditions while others who are not as
reputable will just want to sell, hence they will mislead and give you false information. You need to consider the
Puppies for sale are born on the premises - not shipped in.

Dog set up is clean and well kept. Breeder insists that the puppies for sale will be at least seven weeks old
before being placed.Parents of the litter are at least two years old and were even tested for genetic health before
A good breeder should willingly volunteered information on the health testing of most of the
immediate relatives of the litter, show proof and offer a guarantee against genetic health problems of at least two
years. Even though it isn't possible to produce dogs entirely free of genetic problems!
Thirdly, you should know what you will get along with the puppies you want to buy; a properly
executed Registration Certificate. Registration materials may be withheld if a written statement is provided of
when, and under what conditions, they will be provided (e.g. until the time of spay or neuter by the new owner as
verified by a veterinarian, or if a written certification identifying the exact date of birth, and the AKC, UKC or
CKC (in Canada) registration numbers of the parents are provided instead).
They should also offer a full health record including a diet, inoculation and parasite control
record, and health guarantee. Not only that, but they will provide basic diet and care information and a time frame
during which the puppy or dog may be examined by a licensed veterinarian, at the buyer's expense, and, upon written
recommendation of the veterinarian for specific reasons, the puppy or dog may be returned to the seller for a full
refund of all money paid.
All these should be considered while considering a good breeder.
