Border Collie

My baby girl! I decided to keep her years before she arrived! As a responsible breeder I have been working towards my ‘mating pair’. This is where the breeder has bred both parents of a litter. Lots of people achieve this quite casually, as they have lots of litters and have several different lines in their kennel. For me it has been a real journey! Quin finally joined our family in 2021 and then just 10 months later, Murmur arrived.

Border Collie - Murmur

Appearance and Temperament

Murmur is lilac and white, like her mum, Ounce. But unlike her mum, she has grey eyes and a longer, silkier coat (Ounce is more fluffy).

Murmur is the sweetest, kindest, most gentle dog I have ever owned and probably one of the nicest I’ve ever met. She is so calm and chilled, a bit like Busy (her grandmother), only more so. Of course she loves to run and around with the other and play with toys. She is keen to do what you want, but will quietly get on with it, rather than rushing. We feel that Murmur is a thoughtful dog, who takes herself quite seriously.

Top training

I have been working with Murmur from the day I kept her and she is generally well behaved. She took a while to master ‘down’ but once she has it, it’s just there. She has no vices to speak of, (well the usual BC trait of not welcoming a dog in her face!) I started taking her to scentwork last Autumn and she is doing really well.

I had her assessed to go into school aged 9 months and she does this so well, being gentle and calm with all the children. I took her to Crufts with Busy, to the Bark and Read stand, representing Canine Concern, who support us volunteering in school.

Future litters

I am hoping to have three litters from Murmur and Quin in the future, with the first litter planned for late 2024. I have several enquiries for puppies every week, so don’t hold your breath if you want one.

A Year With Your Puppy

Puppies are hard work! There is a lot to learn and it can be daunting and difficult. This workbook, with its weekly lessons will take you through the first year of owning your puppy. You will probably attend puppy classes and read books, but this is a different resource to help you manage this new relationship. A Year With Your Puppy (AYWYP) will take you through this first year, step by step.
