AKC Champion Border Collie Breeder
About Our Kennel
We are a small breeder dedicated to the select breeding of AKC champion Border Collies for showing, agility, working and other performance venues. We strive to improve the Border Collie through meticulous breeding for excellent health, conformation, working/herding ability, athleticism and temperament. Our Border Collies come from the best New Zealand, Australian and British show and working champion bloodlines.
Our Breeder Philosophy
We are a hobbyist breeder and believe in quality over quantity. Therefore, our intent is not to make a profit, but to produce the ultimate Border Collie line and better the breed. Our puppies are raised with love and care in our home where they are socialized to children and animals. For every litter, the sire and dam are carefully matched with respect to genetics, pedigree and type. Furthermore, we believe in preserving the traditional Border Collie by only breeding dogs that exhibit the ability to herd and work.
We practice responsible breeding by testing all of our Border Collies for eye, hip and other genetic diseases such as CEA/CH and CL (by OptiGen), Hip and Elbow Dysplasia (by OFA), TNS (by Dr. Alan Wilton), Thyroid and CERF. Therefore, we can guarantee our Border Collie puppies are in excellent health and will never contract any of these diseases. We remove dewclaws and properly vaccinate all of our puppies before placing them in homes.
Placing Our Puppies
Being a small breeder we only breed once or twice a year and occasionally have puppies available for sale to approved homes. Border Collies are a herding breed and have a compelling need to work. Therefore, we selectively place our puppies into homes for showing, agility, herding and other working and performance environments. We will not sell/export our dogs to countries where there are no canine welfare laws (e.g. China). Please see our Litters and Planned Breeding page for more information on available Border Collie puppies and upcoming litters.
Centaurea Kennel is located near Edmond, Oklahoma in the Oklahoma City area.
