Welcome to My web site. 

We recently relocated to a beautiful property between Selby & Doncaster, very close to M18 / M62. The Yorkshire vet Julian was one of our vets prior to our move. Our kennel is completely dog friendly with lots of room, dog kitchen, whelping area, covered outdoor area and paddocks.  Prior arranged visits are encouraged should you be seeking to purchase a show or family pet.         Rough Collies are very much to the fore having started with them 39 years ago.                     

 I am a Championship show judge in Smooth Collies, I have judged in Helsinki a few years ago and was asked to judge at The World show in Cezq Republic but cancelled due to covid last year, I also judge Rough Collies and presently serve on The prestigious Collie Association committee.

I have bred five UK champions and exported dogs to the USA, Ireland, Belgium and Switzerland.   I breed to find my next Champion however not all will be champion potential so many puppies are aimed as  family pets as they possess gentle temperaments

Top Puppy in Breed

Smooth Collie Puppy of The Year

Junior Warrant

Top Smooth Collie

Sept 2015 SCCGB Championship show under well known Charlotte Høier Open Dog, 6 entries, 1 absentee.
1. Ms A French’s CH. Foxearth Flock Master for Breckamore. My heart jumped when I saw this dog. For me
there was no doubt about this being the best dog in the entry. What a smooth collie. Everything fits like
hand in a glove. Splendid silhouette with the typical slight rise over the loin. It was no dip behind the
shoulder which we see so often. He had good bone and was perfectly balanced. He moved freely and it was
a pleasure to see him both standing and moving. You can fault them all and to be critical I would like this
stunning smooth’s back skull slightly less deep. But let me say this clearly: I loved him. He was an
impressive representative for his breed. CC, BOS, RBOB

Numerous Best In Show Awards including at the SCCGB Championship show 2019

DCC, BOB, BIS, BVIS Under respected well known all rounder Mr Frank Kane who’s critique is below: 

OD (6, 1)

1 French Ch Foxearth Flock Master for Breckamore JW 8 years tri colour stood out for confirmation and movement.  Very good head planes and clean through the skull.  Eye is a good colour but a little round.  In superb condition.  His angulation and muscle tone ensure his excellent stride and topline.  DCC & BIS & BVIS
