Welcome to Abingdon Ranch,
Home of Abingdon Border Collies.


A WORKING RANCH BORDER COLLIE TRADITION

Abingdon Border Collies has been well known for decades in stock dog circles for our ABCA working border collies, reds such as Lonerider Nan, Rojo, Thong, Tip and black & whites like Lex. While color can be an important deciding factor to many individuals looking for a border collie, Abingdon Border Collies' most important objective is in breeding working border collies that are gentle on sheep but tough enough to work rank cattle. Our working ranch border collies are used daily for herding sheep or gathering cattle. Additionally, our non-working border collies have been placed with people interested in flyball, agility or a great companion in active family homes, with good results.

BRIAN ABINGDON

Brian Abingdon, a successful clinician, trial competitor and stock dog trainer, founded Abingdon Border Collies, a full service breeding, training and lesson facility, in 1985.

He has competed and placed in the Lone Star Futurity and the USBCHA Cattle Dog Finals in Open and Nursery classes.

ABINGDON BORDER COLLIE RETIREMENT, WORKING STYLE!

We breed, train, trial and most importantly, are working the ranch with our ABCA dogs. When retired from competition, it's our belief placing these border collies in a working home situation is best for their health and happiness. Many of our dogs go to working homes, excelling at tasks they love while also having a family to love them. Breeding rights to these dogs are retained so future generations of Abingdon Border Collies’ puppies can continue their excellent working bloodlines and abilities. Information regarding our other border collies is available by selecting a dog from our stud or female menus at the top of each page.
