General Information

SIRE:  Bolt is owned by us here at Top Notch Border Collies. He is the son of our boy Angus and out of Stephanie Bales bitch Splash from Rockcreek Border Collies. He's a clone of his father in personality. He has some herding lines not far back in his pedigree and it shines through. He's a very intense dog with a lot of drive to work but has that off switch we love so much. There's nothing this boy doesn't like to do. He enjoys it all. He and Roza are expected to produce some really nice temperaments and structurally sound dogs. Cant' say enough great things about this boy. He's almost finished with his AKC Championship with limited showing. His first week out was at BCSA Nationals where he earned Reserve best puppy in sweepstakes. Already has Majors and at title in Rally. 2019 We expect to be in full swing with showing this beautiful boy to his greatest potential. 

DAM: Roza is our most lovable border collie. She has a very sweet disposition and hates to disappoint you. She has a great on/off switch which we love. She's very balanced and moves with effortless drive. She finished her AKC Championship at the BCSA National Specialty by taking Reserve WInners Bitch, followed by winning Best Bred-By Exhibitor in show and took Select Bitch her first time in the ring at the BCSA Parent Club Specialty. What a way to start her career. Agility and flyball are by far her favorite performance activities. Her speed and enthusiasm makes her a fun dog to work with. Once I finish up a few of my title goals with a few other dogs is when I will finally be making her performance debuts. For now though she's just enjoying the training time.
