Welcome to Gawain Border Collies.
We are a small, but select kennel, where our dogs lives indoors, as a part of the family. The reason for the quite low number of dogs, is that we don't want to have more dogs, than we can give them all what they need. At home we have 3 bitches and we own 1 males that is living with good friends in a family home. All our breeding stock are Show Champion and/or Obedience Champions.
Further more Dina is not working, so she is at home activating both adult dogs and puppies.
We don't compromise on temperament and health in our dogs. Which means that all breeding stock are hip- and elbowscored and are found clear, prior to being breed form. All breeding dogs are being eyetested and Glaucoma checked prior to the first mating. In addition all breeding stock are DNA tested for TNS, CEA, MDR1 and CL/Storage Disease or are already geneticly clear of these diseases.
And all puppies are eyetested and given a health certificate done by an Official Vetenarian before leaving us at 8 weeks.
Dina has both The Danish Kennel Club course of Breeder education and the extented Breeders education, and we of course follow the breeder recommendations from both the Danish Kennel Club and the Border Collie Club of Denmark - and more.
