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 are located in Langley and as of 2023 in Southern Ontario (2.5 hours south of Toronto).
Willowcreek Border Collies is committed to ethical, responsible breeding and to our dogs and their off spring.
Our program focuses on breeding medium drive, sports/companion lines with our first priority being temperament. We strive to produce balanced Border Collies that can thrive in active family and sport homes.
Colour and ‘looks’ are well behind temperament and health however we are blessed with some of the most beautiful Border Collies in the world, and yes, we are very very bias.
Our program thrives for one reason, our parents. Through the years we have built a family of Border Collie lovers who understand and cherish the gifts they are. Together, we continue to welcome new families, new owners and remain committed to ensure our dogs are never in shelters or unsafe environments.
As breeders, we are here for the journey and do our very best to provide you with resources, tools and support to make your life long experience a memorable one.
Together, we champion health tested, properly raised puppies and hope that regardless of which breeder you choose, you will focus on health and temperament and breeders who are there for the lifetime of the offspring they are creating.
Our puppies are vet checked, dewormed, micro-chipped, have first shots, go home with a free month of puppy insurance and lifetime support.
All puppies are socialized in a family setting and we use ENS/Puppy Culture protocol throughout the whelping process. Our parents are fully health tested for known BC genetic disease as well as have OFA’s (hips/elbows) done at the appropriate time.
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.
As our program has grown, we are now in “2nd” Generation Willowcreek lines. Our three primary breeding girls, Ivy, Tessa and Lizzie as well as our two current sires, Jax and Boston are all registered with the CBCA and can be registered with the ABCA.
Lily is the only girl left who is not registered however her father is Jax and Riley, our Queen has a known pedigree that spans nearly 15 years. Lucy, Lily sister is in her final year and it is undecided if she will have one more litter prior to the end of 2023.Read More

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.
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.
Refunds are not given for ” sorry, bought another pup” situations and are only honored in very rare 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.Read More
