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

Willow Creek Border Collies is now an established breeder, with 4 strong lines and six exceptionally beautiful, healthy litters.

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.

Meet Our Family

Carol Price is a canine behaviorist, author and writer who has owned, trained, bred and worked with Border Collies for nearly 20 years. A former feature writer and commissioning editor on The Sunday Times (in London, UK), she has written for a wealth of national newspapers and magazines and is also author of the two best-selling books, Understanding the Border Collie and Understanding the rescue dog.

Today Carol’s knowledge about dogs – particularly their psychology and behaviour – is much in demand around the world.

We are thrilled to be the only Canadian distributor of her highly reviewed training and phycology books.

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 the most amazing girl you could want.  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, nor did we know she would carry the recessive genes.  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.

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 .  Our females are not registered as Riley was a working border collie and there was no need to register them.  We will provide a full DNA panel on our females to ensure no cross breeding has occurred as well as lineage/heritage information.

The only real need for registration is show, sports and agility do not require registration and it is primarily used to ensure no inbreeding has occurred.  With DNA now readily available, producing those results (in our opinion) are more important than papers that cannot prove anything (other than the litter was registered with certain dog ‘numbers’ as the sire/dam.

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.

Our dogs are fully screened prior to mating and are health tested.   Puppies come with a clean bill of health certificate from the Vet and we do guarantee against all border collie genetic diseases which include:

Collie Eye Anomaly, Choroidal Hypoplasia, CEA

Degenerative Myelopathy, DM

Imerslund-Grasbeck Syndrome, Selective Cobalamin Malabsorption

MDR1 Drug Sensitivity

Myotonia Congenita

Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis 1, NCL 5

Primary Lens Luxation

Trapped Neutrophil Syndrome

Goniodysgenesis and Glaucoma

Raine Syndrome, Canine Dental Hypomineralization Syndrome

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 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.

Should we not have the puppy you wanted at pre-selection, your deposit then moves to the top of the next litter based on the position it was initially in (i.e. spots 2 and 3 successfully have a puppy, you move to #1 on the next litter).

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.
