Welcome to Allstar Collies!
John and I live in Elroy WI and have five adult children. I'm a groomer/trainer. I've been grooming for about 8 years and training dogs for about 30 years. John is a Network Engineer.
We enjoy training and showing our Collies but breed sparingly. Our goal is to create mentally and physically sound, healthy, versatile collies. We have owned dogs with serious health issues in the past and would never wish that heartbreak on anyone ever.
We strive for Collies who can perform in any venue and yet maintain the ability to be the perfect family companion. That requires not only structural correctness but a sound, stable temperament. And we firmly believe a dog should be able to do the job they were created to do.
A pivotal moment for me came with other people's amazement and admiration for how well and happily my dogs worked. It shouldn't be a surprise that a Collie eagerly works. It should just be. It shouldn't be amazing that even our intact males are social and friendly. It should be expected.
There are two aspects of our breeding program that are non-negotiable. First, our puppies never leave the house before they are 10 weeks old. Second, our puppies/dogs are never re-homed. If for any reason you can't keep one of our dogs, no matter their age, they must come back to us.
We look forward to sharing one of our beloved Collies with you and your family. We look forward to answering any questions you may have about our dogs and/or Collies in general.
