Rising Star Border Collies


At Rising Star Border Collies, our dogs train and compete in agility, conformation, flyball, herding and obedience -- displaying the true versatility of the Border Collie.

All dogs we consider breeding have health clearances which include:

  • The supreme sheep herding dog, the Border Collie lives to work. This is the dog for the athletic person who is ready to engage a dog in directed activities. His intense concentration, deep desire to please, as well as speed and intelligence give the breed the edge in just about any job he undertakes.   AKC

    Hips and Elbows certified with the OFA
    (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals)
  • Eyes Certified with CERF
    (Canine Eye Registration Foundation)
  • BAER Hearing Tested
  • Pedigrees checked for Epilepsy
  • CEA genetic testing done
  • TNS genetic testing done
  • CL genetic testing done
  • Glaucoma genetic testing done

Our aim is to breed a sound and versatile Border Collie. Temperament is the main priority, as is the health of the animal for its entire life. We strive to raise confident, well-adjusted puppies that occasionally will be available to selective homes.

Due to the Border Collie's high energy level, the breed may not be suited for everyone. When choosing a breed make sure the proper research is done to ensure the right fit for your lifestyle.

If you have any questions about any of our dogs or the Border Collie breed in general, please feel free to e-mail us. We would be happy to discuss these topics with you.
