rough collie puppies by shed

Litter to be born winter 2022 of Bluebell x Dusty.  Parents DNA Panel tested.  Pups will be rough collies of all standard colors and can be colorheaded whites or white factors. ColleyCollies is adding a smooth collie girl to our females that we will be breeding to a rough in 2023 to get a 50/50 litter of smooths and roughs. Let me know if you would like to get on our list for a smooth or just drop me a email to let me know how you feel about them. :-).  Scroll to see our current matings. 

 

 

 Our belief is that good health and temperament is essential, cuteness is guaranteed and lots of love is always included.

Feeding: For those of you that know me you know that I used to feed raw food and though raw food is excellent the pricing has gone incredibly high. When I first started I was spending $575 a month, my last shipment was right at $1400! I simply could not do it anymore and still feed my own family. 

However I did not give up on quality food for my dogs or their puppies. We are proud of the fact that we have never put profit before our pets at their expense. When you buy a puppy from us you will get a healthy puppy from healthy parents.  

Thankfully there have been enough people that have woken up the dog food industry and advances made. Now I feed a high quality dog food that has an 89-92% digestibility rating which means 89-92% of the food eaten is utilized nutritionally in the body and only about 10% comes out as waste.  This is a leader in the market as it is nutrient dense and you feed up to 40% less than other foods!

Once you see the results for yourself you will want all of your dogs on it, as I have done with my dogs. 

Please refer to our Puppy Pricing Policy page.

To get on our list for this year or next or to inquire about one of our precious babies please use our contact us form. If you prefer you may call us at 501-658-5204 and leave a message.

Getting Your Collie Puppy

United Airlines has a pet safe program. They ship pets in temperature controlled compartments specifically for pets. The price is roughly $500 which includes the live animal certificate and the crate that you keep. They will also allow your collie puppies to be brought back as carry-on if under 20 lbs. At 8 weeks they typically are around 8 to 12 lbs.

We will also hand deliver up to 5 1/2 hours 1 direction for $400, or beyond that up to 8 hours in one direction to meet you or deliver to your home if within the 8 hour window for $500.00. For us this  is 11 to 16 hours round trip of (google estimated) straight drive time, now add in the time it takes to stop for potty breaks and personal attention for your baby and we are in the car from 13 to 18 hours round trip. Your puppy gets personal attention and potty breaks but you will have your puppy the same day of travel. If you would like personal delivery that takes longer than 8 hours one way contact me and we can arrange it for an additional fee.

Additionally, we or a member of our family will travel to any state line border and back that surrounds Arkansas for $175.00 for gas and our time. This averages to about a 5 hour drive for us, regionally we are in close proximity to the center of the state.  This would be less than paying taxes when picking up from my home and save you time as well if you are driving in but you are certainly welcome to come to our home for pickup if you prefer. 

Other options are ground transport services or a pet nanny service.  A pet nanny flies in the cabin with your puppy and hand delivers your puppy to you in the air port. Or, you could fly in and pick up your puppy.

There are many puppy ground transport services. We are happy to look into any of them if you have one in mind to discuss.

As with all states, we are required to collect taxes if you live in state or come to Arkansas to pick up a puppy from us. 

Pre-Paid Microchips

We provide “Microchips” for your pups for their protection. We pay for the microchip because we are listed as 2nd contact so we will be available if you are not able to be contacted. No renewal fees are neccessary. You can take the microchip with you to your first vet visit to have them put it in or you can let me know ahead of time and I will microchip your puppy for you. 

Please keep a metal tag on them with the registration number and your phone number so you will be contacted should anything happen.  If no tag is present and the puppy is scanned they will be identified and the “Lot” number will trace back to me as secondary contact to you. This provides a safety net for our puppies. 

Paper Training Puppies

We start paper training at 2 1/2 weeks with a friendly system for our collie puppies. A removable opening at the back of the large whelping box allows the puppies easy access to a tray covered with paper after we remove part of the rails on the end.

The rails keeps mom from squishing small puppies when she lays back if they are behind her. The puppies naturally gravitate to the paper to eliminate away from their feeding and sleeping area.

Outside Potty Training Your Rough Collie Puppy And Exercise

After the puppies are about 5 weeks of age they start going outside to play in a puppy pen during the day. We put them out first thing in the morning so your puppy gets outside potty training all day. By the time they are 8 weeks old some of them have learned to hold it during the night until they get out in the morning.  At that young age it usually takes another week or two to several weeks to train their bladder. We have heard however that sometimes they are house broken by the time they get to their new homes. 

While in the puppy pen we provide stimulation in the form of toys. I think the favorite is the puppy tunnel which they love and since we bought their new one, don’t tear up anymore, lol. They now also have small agility devices to step on and jump over, a small slide and a toy house with several doors.  And they are so stinking cute while playing! I watched several of them jumping up on the slide and off, running through the tunnel and then jumping into the play house and tusseling around, just adorable. 

Besides stimulation I felt our puppies needed a nice place to relax when they get tired from all of that playing. I was always worried about the temperature being to hot or to cold! I’ve found what I think is the perfect solution,  “Colley Collies Cozy Cottage”.  It’s set up with heat and air. During the winter months they have warmth, during the summer months they have indoor air. Don’t judge me 🙂

Hubby put it together but lets give credit where credit is due. The units are custom built and shipped by Ricky, owner of Blythe Wood Works 

*Note since having the cozy cottage built we have also built a real kennel with heat and air! And doggy doors so all of our puppies will be trained to “house” doggy doors.

Yard Chemicals, Heartworm Prevention and Immunizations

We quit using yard chemicals many years ago in any area around our pets and puppies. 

As far as heartworm preventative, we’ve used Interceptor, Interceptor plus, revolution, advantage multi, anything that collies can take. Then I started finding the generics that have the same ingredient with the same amount; selarid, MilbeGuard. You can save money with the generics and they work as good. I would prefer to use an all natural product but the area of the state we live in just does not allow for it.  Let me know if you have a better alternative but for us here in the south, especially around minnow farms, Mosquito infestation is just terrible and the risks are to high.

As far as ticks and fleas, you can take care of it with some of the heartworm medicines. And you can also find generic for advantix. There are also natural ways to deal with it. At any rate I still like to try the all natural products available as well.  I like Wondercide. They use Essential oils that not only provide a natural remedy for fleas, ticks but it’s also a mosquito deterrent. You can also pick up Natural Care at your local Wal-Mart if you are interested in that one. Wondercide is sold on their website as well as Amazon and can be found in some pet care companies. I have also found that using plain coconut oil is GREAT for killing fleas. Get 100% virgin coconut oil in solid form, get a good glop in your hand and rub it together to warm it and then rub it in to your dogs skin and hair, it will KILL fleas and is a natural deterrent. It may not be something you want to leave on your dogs skin or put on all the time however because I’ve read it can clog pores. However you can use it to kill fleas and for hot spots and you can also administer 1 tsp to every 20lbs of body weight in their food. Coconut oil has natural antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties.  

I do believe in initial immunization for our pets. Mom’s colostrum provides a lot if not all of this. I must say however that I do not believe in over vaccination. Once our pets have had the initial vaccines through 16 weeks we do not vaccinate again unless neccessary.

On the subject of immunizations, I follow Dr. Karen Becker, a holistic vet that I admire. According to her, if your pet has any titer at all in his or her system they are still immunized. Titers are disease specific and a test can be performed to check for them to see if they are present. 

It’s too much to get into but here are some titer resource video’s by Dr. Becker here and here. You should watch both as each contain specific information. 

Here are some resource links as well: https://thebark.com/content/titer-testing and https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/titer-testing-dog/

 

Forever Homes

When we place our rough collie puppies in homes they are expected to be “forever” homes. Of course sometimes there are unexpected circumstances. If you are no longer able to keep your pet and are not able to find them a loving home please return them to us so we can find them a new home. If not, they will stay with us.

If you would like to have more information about one of our available puppies or would like to be added to our waiting list you can go to our Contact Us page and send us your information.

We will make every effort to respond within 24 hours. You may also call us if you prefer at 501-658-5204.

In closing and in short to anyone other then loving families and consciencious breeders:   Please note, we absolutely do not sell to pet shops or puppy mills. I reserve the right not to sell my rough collie puppies to anyone when I question their intentions for my puppies.

Our puppies are in many US States and we have 2 in Canada.

Thanks so much to all of the wonderful families who have adopted our babies!! I feel really good knowing they have gone to wonderful homes in all walks of life. Please, please keep in touch, and send me lots of letters and pictures!

Sincerely,

Linda and Lance Sorrows
