    Puppies ready to go on the: ---------- NOW-

    Upland Roy (RED), Red and white rough curly coated dog
    Upland Roy (RED) I.S.D.S. No: 335105

    Red and white Rough Curly coated Dog.

    Litter brother to trials winner Upland Cap who has just placed in the English Nationals 2018

    Red is in full training with our student and going very well.

    First litter born 25th September 2017.

    Fantastic nature, with an off switch.

    But beware, if he thinks there is work to be done, you have to be awake,

    as this man is also a workaholic especially with sheep.

    I purchased RED (Upland Roy) in the summer of 2017

    but I have two Roy's a very common name, so he is called RED, very inventive.

     

    He was part trained.

    I am finishing his training and he will join our team to hold up for young dogs, and

    mayby do some trials if I ever get the time.

    As a work dog he is strong, pushy and powerful full of confidence.

    He is good to command, stylish, with good pace and flanks.

    As a pet/companion dog he is excellent, having a great "off switch" when there are no sheep around,

    he gets on well with other dogs and takes everything in his stride, he is calm and bomb proof.

     

    We love to show him off to visitors

    We admire this dog so much that when we heard his mother was for sale,

    we purchased her to add to our team.

    His mother Gem has produced several pups making well over £2500

    at Skipton and other Auctions.

    Fluffy teh bearded border collie
    Fluffy - Bearded border Collie not registered

    Fluffy had a litter of Bearded Collie pups in 2017,

    we were not going to mate her again

    until we had undergone

    the ISDS working test to register her on merit (ROM)

    Fluffy is used to teach our students

    how to handle a young sheepdog on sheep

    She is very natural and easy to handle.

    Fluffs has a super nice friendly nature

     

    This litter by Red was accidental and caused by one of our students

    leaving the gate open.

    I will be retaining one female pup for ongoing training.

    If you are interested in breeding with your puppy,

    you must advise us if you intend to breed

    because any breeding must be seriously considered

    for many different reasons, it is not just a case of putting two handsome well natured dogs together and hoping for the best.
    Advising us of your intentions will allow us to update you on any health issues encountered

    since you collected your puppy.

    Additionally, we may like to help select the mate for your dog and purchase a puppy from that mating

    in order to maintain our bloodlines.

     

    Please read our artilcle

    To Breed or not to Breed


    Please read "Our Puppy Guarantee" before you enquire about our puppies.

     

     

    Make Your Enquiry NOW !

    to purchase a puppy from this litter or to ask about any other puppies.

     

    Preference will ALWAYS be given (where choice is available) to potential WORKING homes (herding or competition performance sports).

    It is human nature to select on looks alone.

    BUT it is through our considerable experience that we advise you to take into account the puppies character in the selection process;

    because selecting the wrong character is much harder to live with than the wrong white markings,coat colour or coat length.

    Just because a puppy is not marked as Sold does not mean that it is still available. Puppies are marked SOLD on the website once the choice has been agreed with the new owners according to the character of the puppies (and not by their Colour or Coat) and a deposit has been received. This is usually done at 7 to 8 weeks of age.

     

    BECAUSE

     

    Firstly, I as breeder may want to keep one of the puppies and as I want to work them on sheep, I will select my puppy not on the looks but on its character and how it learns and

     

    reacts to certain situations and tests I may carry out.

     

    Through vast experience I have found great success in choosing pups through this procedure so

     

    we now like to place pups to the right home by Character we ask you give us your choice of three puppies in order of preference. 

     

    This is essential as we may well have several requests for the same puppy and we, of course, cannot dissect the puppy.

     

    Your choices will always be considered and mutually agreed upon before the final choice is made.

     

    Character develops from five weeks of age and I will be looking closely at the pups to establish which in my opinion will make the best possible dog for your requirements, and by 7 weeks of age I will have a fair idea of each pup' s character.

     

    Therefore we make final selection between 7 to 8 weeks of age.

     

    Regular photo updates (we try to do this once every week to ten days) and also try to include some regular video. Video's are ALWAYS placed onto my YOUTUBE page before being placed onto the website, please subscribe to YOUTUBE and make sure your settings allow for all video updated to be emailed to you. (check your spam email folder too)

     

    Look forward to receiving your choices in order of preference.

     

    If you want a choice of puppies at 7 - 8 weeks od age you will need to place a deposit as soon as possible once I have agreed that you may purchase one of my special puppies.

     

    I reserve the right to refuse to sell you a puppy if, I do not think you will give them a suibable home.

     

    I may also want you to supply references from your vet, dog training clubs etc. to help me decide on your suitability

     

    Please read our page Book A Puppy NOW ! to see how our application process is done.
