Our Breeding Practices

Behaviour and socialisation

All pups will have commenced very basic training, leaning their name, sit and drop, along with toilet training prior to leaving our care. We subject our pups, in small doses, to as many sights and sounds as possible in the 8 weeks they are in our care. We use a combination of noise soundtracks and real life noise's…

All of our Breeding dogs (4) have had Orivet Full Breed DNA Profiles completed and are available upon request when purchasing a border collie pup. This ensures your pup can not develop any hereditary diseases as it grows. We feed a combination of Dry Advance Food and Raw Food to our dogs including but not limited to…

All of our dogs and puppies live in and around our house (if not in Lottie's bed). They are free to run, play, swim in a kiddy pool, play in thier cubby house with sand pit and laze in the sun on the verandah as they please. Being on acres we often take them for a run and a sniff in the paddock to stimulate their…

Additional Tests

Lotties Run Border Collies conducts 11 additional tests available for the Border Collie.

dna iconGenetic Test

This a genetic cause of cobalamin malabsorption found in Border Collies. Affected dogs cannot absorb Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) from the gut and therefore experience a range of gastrointestinal disease. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

This condition mainly affects Newfoundlands although other breeds can be affected. It is a genetic condition which results in the production of kidney and bladder stones. There is a DNA test available to confirm that breeding dogs are not carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

This is a disease affecting the spinal cord of older dogs, initially causing wobbliness and eventually hindlimb paralysis. It can affect a wide range of breeds. There is now a DNA test that can indicated if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.

dna iconGenetic Test

Goniodysgenesis is a genetic cause of ‘glaucoma’, or increased pressure in the eye. Untreated glaucoma can result in eye pain and blindness. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this genetic cause of glaucoma.

dna iconGenetic Test

The MDR-1 gene (Multi-drug Resistance Gene 1) is responsible for producing proteins that protect the brain from harmful chemicals. Some breeds have a mutation in this gene resulting in them being dangerously sensitive to certain chemicals and drugs. It is recommended to test these breeding dogs for the MDR-1 mutation, so they do not pass on the sensitivity to their puppies.

dna iconGenetic Test

Myotonia Hereditaria/Congenita is a genetic disease that causes muscle problems resulting in a stiff gait and difficulty swallowing. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog might be carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (NCL) is a neurodegenerative disorder found in many breeds of dog. 7 varieties have been identified so far, affecting different breeds. There are DNA tests for each type, to identify whether a breeding dog might be carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Raine Syndrome, or Canine Dental Hypomineralisation, is a genetic disorder found in Border Collies, that causes their teeth to wear down abnormally fast. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Sensory Neuropathy is a serious genetic disease causing progressive neurological degeneration. Affected dogs develop difficulty with basic activities such as walking and swallowing and will eventually require euthanasia. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.

dna iconGenetic Test

Trapped Neutrophil Syndrome (TNS) is a genetic disease affecting Border Collies. It results in the dog’s white blood cells not being released from the bone marrow properly, meaning they cannot fight off infections. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Von Willebrand’s Disease (VWD/vWD) is a genetic bleeding disorder caused by a lack of a specific clotting factor. There are three forms of the disease, types 1, 2 & 3. A DNA test is available for each type of VWD to identify whether a breeding dog is a carrier or might be affected. The severity of VWD varies widely between breeds and individuals, ranging from life threatening, through to having no impact on clotting ability.

Why we got involved in breeding

The joy of watching a mumma dog give birth and the connection between us and our dogs in that moment I wish I could share with the world. They look at you for comfort and affection. It is always an honour to help a mumma whelp and to watch these tiny creatures develop into 8 week old pups with personalities all of…
