Our love for our Border Collies starts here.RESPONSIBLE BREEDING IS OUR NUMBER 1 PRIORITY

Willow Creek Border Collies is an established border collie breeder with exceptional family & sports dogs.  With the newest addition of 3 ABCA girls from California ( with championship lines) we look forward to continuing to better our program and produce the best Border Collies in Canada.

 

We have focused on temperament and quality health since deciding to breed. All our crew are health tested and we are committed to breeding and paring only the best temperaments and the healthiest Border Collies.

How We Started

We never ‘planned’ to become breeder’s, that is the truth.  It all started with such a strong love for Riley.  She is incredibly smart, has a great sniff ability and is truly a magnificent dog.

When we set out to mate Riley, it was simple – we wanted her line to stay alive and we wanted to ensure we had one of her offspring.  We didn’t know she would produce the amazing temperaments she did.  We did not test to ensure color and we truly didn’t care.  We wanted healthy, well tempered dogs and that is exactly what we achieved.

Our PuppiesThe Basics

Our puppies are vet checked, dewormed, micro-chipped, have first shots, and are well socialized in a family setting and we use ENS/Puppy Culture protocol for all puppies.

 

We are also transparent and easily accessible to answer any questions. Where we place our pups is extremely important to us.  When inquiring about our pups, we would like you to share a bit of you including if you understand the needs of the breed and what their home environment will be like.

Our Sire, Jax is a registered purebred with the CBCA .  Piper, Lucy & Lily are not registered as Riley was a working border collie and there was no need to register them, we also know her line going back 4 generations.  We will provide a full DNA panel on our females to ensure no cross breeding has occurred as well as lineage/heritage information.

Ivy, Abby and our newest girl are ABCA registered.  We are thrilled to be able to carry on this line from California.  They are exceptional dogs with solid pedigrees and championship lines and we are thrilled to add them to our program.

Yes we do.  We use the Embark Breeders Program to ensure our dogs are clear of all Border Collie inherited diseases as well as ensure that are inbreeding is inline with correct standards.  This allows us to ensure you will have the healthiest border collie’s possible and can pair our dogs properly.  Hips/Elbows are done at 2 years of age and Jax’s were delayed due to covid, he is now scheduled in September for his.  All parents of our breeding group have good to excellent OFA ratings and all our dogs will have grading done at the appropriate time.

Yes. We will only accept deposits that we feel we will be able to fill on the upcoming litter.  If there are several people looking for the same dog ( e.g. A female ee Red, we will only take a maximum of 3 deposits on the litter).  If you are more flexible and have several choices, if we are able, we will take a deposit.  Deposits are accepted when we feel we can accommodate the selection in the upcoming litter and.

We can never guarantee a certain gender or colour will be born but we do our best to accommodate and deposits ensure you have your pre-selection prior to those on our regular wait list.

Please note we always retain first pick of any given litter.  Currently, we are not planning on holding any puppies back however we do retain that option.

If we have two litters and cannot meet your requirements, a refund of your deposit is offered.

WAIT LISTS are not guaranteed.  Once pre-selection has occurred (around 4 weeks), we then move to our wait list in the order/preference available.

Refunds are not given for ” sorry, bought another pup” situations.  We spend significant money and time developing our program and planning our litters.  Screening and applications take time and if you have held a spot on a litter, it is because you are wanting to become a part of the Willow Creek family, which by the way is incredibly special and truly a family with lifetime support and friendships.
