Planned Litters

When choosing my Foundation dogs, I considered carefully:
Health, temperament, drive, structure, workability and conformation.
My dogs share my home, and they are loved dearly. I train them myself, and spend most of my time with my dogs.

Because I expect them to do well in performance rings and not only in conformation, it is very important to me that they have the
structure that allows them to be successful, the talent to perform, and health that will keep them with me for as long as possible.

Mackland dogs are only bred after confirmed hips scores of A or B, clear elbows, DNA eye results that are guaranteed clear of CEA (Collie Eye), and DNA tested clear of MDR1.
Shetland Sheepdogs are also cleared of Degenerative Myleopathy, Von Willebrands Type III, and Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to fully test for PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy) in both breeds, but the Shelties are tested for the one strain where we have a test available.

believe that you can "have it all" with careful planning.

They are not cheap, so only serious enquiries, please!

"Lets not measure a breeder's success by the amount of winnings their dog does in the show ring, but by the number of dogs that stay with the family that purchased them as a puppy and that die in the arms of the same family many years later. In that case, we have three winners, the breeder, the family and most importantly, the dog." - unknown
