We are dedicated to:
Abingdon Border Collies has a tradition of breeding top ABCA working border collie bloodlines, proven by producing decades of quality working ranch dogs, some who are also successful at competitive USBCHA, ASCA and other trial venues.
Abingdon Border Collies’ objectives in breeding are to produce:
Basic obedience training of our border collie puppies begins at 8-10 weeks. Puppies are exposed to stock at about three-six months of age and will be introduced to working stock as they show interest and the mental maturity to handle stock handling pressure.
All stock dogs at Abingdon Border Collies are trained with international herding commands, using both voice and whistle. In addition a number of Abingdon Border Collies dogs have gone on to train for trials in agility, obedience, working stock, frisbees and fly ball, as well as therapy dogs, ranch dogs and family companions.
