It has often been said that the Border Collie is the breed that has it all – brains and beauty. Initially bred to herd sheep, over time the Border Collie has developed into one of the most varied and versatile of all breeds, proving to be an expert in a huge number of fields including agility, obedience and working trials.


If you are fortunate enough to own a good working bitch and wish to breed from her, experienced working dog breeder Michael Brander has written this book for you. He guides the novice step-by-step through the basic procedures for rearing a litter of sound working pups. He gives first-hand advice on assessing your bitch's suitability, choosing the potential sire, arranging the mating and, if all goes according to plan, care of the pregnant bitch
