About Vicky


Vicky was the result of over a year of searching for my next breeding/show prospect. So far she is proving to be a well rounded dog. and has passed all health clearances. We are very much looking forward to seeing what she produces. 


She's not sound sensitive in the slightest but she can be sensitive to physical pressure when working in obedience and rally but still gives great effort with a gentle hand and does not walk away from the lesson. She routinely works as my demo dog for training classes both for obedience and agility. She has been primarily taught by my assistant trainer in agility and works well under multiple handlers. A very easy dog to love. Super sweet and a fearless happy girl wherever we go.

Vicky is a very stunning bitch. She rarely puts a foot out of place, very balanced and moves with ease. Her head is very feminine and expressive. So far she's done amazing things already in the conformation ring just from the 6-9mon puppy class - winning 3 majors. 2 of which were won under breeder judges at the Border Collie Specialty in California. She obtained her IntCH title through IABCA with all V-1 ratings and earned a group 1 placement. She is actively showing in Barn Hunt, Conformation, Agility, Cat, FastCat, Rally and obedience.
