Hi there, my name is Pat. I have been breeding and showing my Rough Collies for 14 years now. I have had some success in the show ring, but I show my dogs for fun as they enjoy it.

I only breed occasionally, and so I sometimes have a waiting list for those that wish to have one my puppies.

Some have had success in the show ring, but most are sold as pets and enjoy a variet of fun pursuits, like flyball and agility. Puppies are sold to approved homes, as the home for my puppies is of the most importance.

I also have stud dogs, that you may be interested in using, if so, please contact me and pedigrees can be sent on request.

So please take a look at the following dogs on these pages. I will update and add more pictures and details of any puppies that I have. If you have any questions or enquiries, please contact me.

The following dogs make up the Caprioara kennel. All my dogs are kept indoors with me, and enjoy camping around the various shows. They are fit for function, and fit for life, and they are the typical classic collie type that were around many years ago.

So please meet my classic collies.......
