Our dogs

Most importantly, our dogs are pets — they all live in the house, go for walks, play with children and enjoy their cuddles! In addition, they get to do as much or as little 'work' as they enjoy: Eowyn is a very natural herding girl, but has enjoyed her time in obedience and conformation rings too — while we're aware that she's getting older, she still loves herding, so the compromise is that she gets to bring the sheep in from the small field every day. Eo's children, Buffy and Dream help out on a local sheep farm (along with Eo), while Raven and Fëa, occassionally joined by Dream, compete in agility at the highest level. Raven's daughter, Pip is showing a lot of talent in herding, has done incredibly well in conformation, and is also enjoying her agility training and, having not been able to attend any shows in 2020, that in she'll be joining her mum at some agility competitions in 2021! Pip's baby girl Tara is enjoying being a puppy, but we plan on adding more activities to her repertoire as she gets older.

We aim to breed dogs with a solid temperament, which are suitable for any discipline, be it breed showing, agility, obedience, or herding. Healthy dogs are very important to us — this is the reason we started the Anadune Border Collie Database which allows breeders to check that planned matings are free of hereditary diseases.

We take a long time over deciding on possible stud dogs, making sure they complement the girls in every way. The dogs in the Anadune kennel are a mixture of New Zealand, Australian and English lines, and we research the dog's background thoroughly before signing them up for the job! Please take a look at the puppies page if you are interested in owning an Anadune puppy.
