Three generations of experience producing Border Collies with exceptional talent for a wide range of situations. A strong working pedigree is behind our breeding stock. Border Collie puppies produced today at the Kuykendall farm are from strong well established ninth and tenth generation individuals resulting in a more uniform, predictable litter. Sound bodies and stable temperaments to withstand the rigorous daily work that they might encounter are among the traits we look for in our dogs and bitches. Although you will find some beautiful looking Border Collies on the farm, our selection process concentrates on Border Collies for their working ability. Years ago when we needed a dog with stamina to work hard all day that is what we bred for and still do today so you will see a variety in coat color, size, ear set, eye color, hair length. We are one of the oldest and most prominent Border Collie Breeders in this country
The successful combination of these traits doesn't happen by accident - it requires planning and years of experience working with the Border Collie breed. This combination, though, produces Border Collies that are consistently successful as sheep dogs, cattle dogs, goat dogs, agility dogs and goose dogs in a wide variety of working situations, and that routinely withstand the rigorous physical and mental demands encountered by working dogs.
Plus, all of our puppies are eye tested, vet checked, raised in the house, and used to living in today's modern world -- complete with kids.

"I have always been impressed with Cait's natural ability and general good sense...she's really strong and never quits." (Chase Hubbard)
