    Default Border Collie

    I am looking for a pup - preferably from working parents.

    Anybody know a good breeder?

    Unfortunately I don't have any up-to-date info on breeders. The last 7 Border Collies have come from Border Collie Rescue.

    Twee Borders en altwee tefies,pragtige ras en my gunsteling honde ras.

    Net so terloops altwee myne kom van verskillende telers af en hul geaardhede verskil dag en nag.

    Een die spelerigste besigste teef en vriendelik met almal,my ander een besig en te veel energie maar jy moet haar nie eers bietjie skeef aankyk as jy n vreemde op die werf is nie en jys vol tandgate... maar altwee speel n bal flou en die swembad word nou gebruik reg deur die jaar...

    Ons het twee Collie - Labrador kruisings - nou as jy mooi dink oor dit moet ek teoreties daai honde kan leer lees en skryf. Hoeveel slimmer kan n hond word?

    Maar ek soek n werk hond - een wat op die bakkie kan ry en skape kan keer. So ons is nou in kontak met n klomp telers, maar die honde is omtrend n jaar vooruit geboek.

    Ek sal vir jou uitvind by ons breeders. Ek weet een is einde van die jaar due. Tefie is van n plaas in Ierland en Reun is heel moontlik myne. Pa van Nederland, ma van spanje. Albei werdende honde.

    Ons ander teler Is ook einde van die jaar due maar sy gee net honde vir werkende huise so hullesal moet skaap werk of agility doen.

    Contact the South African Sheepdog Association and ask for a breeder who can show you the parents working! This is only the starting point so much is up to how you train your puppy

    I've had 3 BC's when I was younger and they are absolutely special, we now have a house full for Golden Retrievers (one from a puppy and two rescues), they also great dogs but very very different in personalities, much more relaxed

    Dis nogal moeilik, want jy moet die geaardhede eerstehands sien om te bepaal of dit n natuurlike werkshond is.

    Ek het n reun en n teef, die teef wil net bal speel (sy het selfs die kinders se BB gun pellets vir ons gebring toe sy klein was), sy gee glad nie om oor enegiets anders as haar bal nie.

    Die reun is n tipiese werkershond, hy gaan le plat, konsentreer op die teef as sy hardloop en gryp haar aan haar haaskene en stert as sy hardloop agter die bal aan. Dag en nag verskil.

    Die teef was die rustigie een van haar werpsel, sy was eenkant en baie rustig, sy le nou nog amper heel dag op die bank en slaap, tot jy n bal naby haar bring. Die reun was weer die besige een van sy werpsel, met die ander Collies gespeel en heel tyd saam gehardloop.

    Een ding is verseker, hulle is albei baie sag geaard, een keer se hard praat en hulle luister soos kinders (hulle is 'obedience trained'), dit is wonderlike honde, ek dink nie ek sal ooit weer enige ander hond kan he nie.

    Mag ek dalk hier hi-jack aangesien ek nerens advies kry nie. Wat maak mens met 'n reun wat probeer alpha male op die werf speel en sy been orals teen my huis se mure lig.

    Hy het nou skielik hierdie manier aangeleer na 5 jaar en dit vlek die mure so dat mens nie die kolle kan afkry nie.
    Ons het einde laas jaar die huis ook oorgeverf en dit is alreeds weer op meer as 10 plekke bevlek.

    Ander info, hy is die reun en sy sussie is ook by ons. Daar is ook 'n 14 jaar oue labrador reun wat hierdie naweek uitgesit gaan word. Die labrador pla hom egter nie en is nie meer instaat om sy been teen enigiets te lig nie, so die nie asof hy bo-oor sy merke wil merk nie.

    Wimpy Schoeman farms at Willowmore Excellent Working Stock I used to get my Border Collies from Working Stud Breeder >> the Kingwills from Graaff Reinet but they are Game farmers so stopped breeding their Stud Working Dogs >> My Schoeman Dog is Brilliant but you need to spend a lot of time exercising them otherwise Wimpy who only breeds mainly for his staff wont sell to a Townie at all. I was lucky as I did Shhep Dog Trials and was known to him. Tip from my Sheep Farmer Mates >> NEVER get a Male >> the Females are far better workers due mainly that they only come into season once a year and Males are in season every day of the year . If you dont come right contact SASDA in Volksrus (SA Sheepdog Association) NEVER USE KENNEL UNION KUSA Dogs they dont have working ability and are just bred for show

    So we found one, on paper the perfect dog, most loving breeder in her e-mails.

    One problem: The pup is in Kakamas. But no problem - we can courier her - she uses a courier frequently for R500. We must pay R2000 upfront and R2000 when the dog arrive.

    This is the mail we got:

    Hi There

    thanks very much for getting back to me and your interest in giving
    { Honey } a good home with love and care , We are Located in Kakamas,
    You can Use our Physical address to Locate us- 19 Kokerboom Street,
    Kakamas,8870 Northern Cape,Kakamas, we always love for our Customers
    to come here and Cuddle with the puppies before Purchasing the puppy
    so that we can also get to meet them and know they kind of parent they
    will be to the puppy but judging from your location , the distance
    constrain and the age of the puppy we can arrange for the puppy to be
    courier to you with a professional pet courier service that will do
    same day delivery right at your doorstep , if okay with you then honey
    will cost you R3500 and R 500 for her courier fee , so for the puppy
    and the courier fee the total will be R4000 which you will pay %50

    and Updates..

    -Do you have a Park Near your Home Where You can take her On Short

    Regards...


    Not being born yesterday - we convince the women that we'll pay the courier R500 and do an immediate payment when the courier deliver - before he leave with the pup - she agrees.

    Then arrives a R10 000 bill for a temperature controlled transport hub - fully refundable when we return it

    5 mins later a R25 000 (I am not kidding about these amounts) insurance bill -also refundable.

    We start calling the woman - and she's gone! Nothing! Call FNB, had the R500.00 payment reversed at a minor fee.

    Ans the search continues.
    Everything is a hammer.
    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.

    With respect, this does not sound all right -particularly where she mentions the last bit.

    Any breeder of Border Collies will know that 'short walks' for that breed is nowhere near enough excercise/stimulation for a working dog breed. This should have been a primary point of discussion between you from outset before even considering to sell you a dog.

    Beware of 'puppy-mill' breeders, rather buy from 'hobby' breeders in one specific breed, and ideally members of the specific KUSA clubs.

    If you are to buy a working dog -always highly recommended to first visit the kennels, meet the parents and breeder, meet litter and play/watch for a half-hour -and rather select your own pup.

    The dead give-away for me was the atrocious English/spelling. Too many and too obvious. No breeder would advertise from Kakamas, knowing that this is way out of every purchasers' way.
