Prefix : COLLIEVALE (Collie (Rough))
We have been very lucky to import some lovely dogs from Cathkin kennels in Australia starting with our tri boy NZ Ch Cathkin Lastinimpression (Imp Aus) who made a very lasting impression on us and he sired our first home bred champion Ch Lastin-Blaize of Collievale. The last couple of years has seen us consolidate on our other imports - NZ Ch Strathaven Maker of Dreams (Imp Aus) (Atlas), NZ Ch Cathkin Pretty Spectacular (Imp Aus) (Xena) and NZ Ch Cathkin Lordy Miss Maudie (Imp Aus) (Maudie) The future looks bright for us at Collievale and we have a lot to be thankful for with the help people have given us. Visit our website to see what we are up to. Covid has been a bugbear and we have not been to a show since July 2021. We hope 2022 will see us able to be out and about again. Stay safe everyone.
We are primarily a rough collie kennel but a smooth collie was added to our kennel in 2003 when Ch Golden Ambition of Glenrere (Amber) came to us. Now we delight in having both varieties. A lovely sable girl who was a delight to have. Maybe in the future we will once again have a smooth in our kennel.
We will not be breeding any more of the Smooth variety at this stage but any queries about the Smooth Collie please feel free to email us.
