Owning a new puppy is a life-changing experience - Not unlike bringing home a newborn child. Who would think of spending happy hours with their newborn during the holidays, then leaving it alone for 10 hours a day when they return to work?
We love our puppies and want to see them join families who will respect and care for them - as long as they live.
There are no planned litters for Dreamwood Border Collies.
Please note that we have only seen Black & White, or Red & White, from our Litters.
If you are looking for Chocolate, Merle, Sable, Tri or any other colour, please look for Border Collie Breeders on the Dogs NSW or DogzOnline websites.
A word of WARNING when you are looking for a puppy!
Puppies have Mothers, and reputable Breeders care for their Mothers, as much as they care for their Puppies.
The Government cares too - the Animal Welfare Code of Practice - Breeding dogs and cats (Para 10.1.1.9) states that:
"Bitches must not have more than two litters in any two year period, unless with the written approval of a veterinary practitioner"
This does NOT mean three (3) litters in less than 12 months. Don't think that happens? Just check out Facebook.
So when you contact a Breeder, who assures you their puppies are well cared for, socialised, blah, blah - ask them...
"How many litters has the Mother had - and when?"
See the Litter List for past Dreamwood litters.
