Stunning, Loving, Bold & Happy.
"ASTRA" border collie sheepdogs.
For well over 25 years, we have been specializing in the breeding of Quality ISDS reg. Border Collies with wonderful temperaments, producing highly trainable dogs with Brains, Herding instinct and Agility.
Above all we breed for HEALTHY LONG LIVED dogs and have health records for our dogs going back 20 years with 100's of happy owners returning for second. third even their 10 dog over these years.
Our puppies have excelled to championship level in the hobby sports of Sheepdog Trials, Dog Agility, Fly-ball, Heelwork to Music (Freestyle), Obedience and Working Trials in more than 30 countries worldwide.
We breed for sheepdogs for herding ability, temperament, character, train-ability, agility and an "off switch".
This is what we like ourselves in the pups that we hold back for training to become qualified sheepdogs, which, once trained, are then sold to farmers and sheepdog trials competitors throughout the world.
To ensure that we have the absolute best selection of puppies to train as sheepdogs, all our puppies are reared in and alongside our busy home, well socialized with children, they are handled regularly since birth and are taken to various environments for early learning and socialization opportunities.
Unfortunately, we can't keep all the pups we breed for training, so we often have puppies for sale to suitable homes for Performance Dog Sports (Agility, Obedience, HWTM, Working Trials, Search and Rescue etc) or as active companions/pet for the selected families.
