My puppies are born in our home and are socialize before they go to their new families, and not just by having people visit them here at home where they are comfortable.  We bring the pups outside of their comfort zone to socialize and experience the world as soon as they can see, hear and walk, as at this age they are able to be imprinted in all situation positively. We also start to allow people whom we know who are experienced with puppies, visit the litter to help socialize and train them. By the time you get your puppy they normally already have an idea of basic commands, 'sit', 'down', 'stand', target training etc. I try to start on some agility training for puppies; mini dog walk, tunnel, wobble board (teeter), and lay down on a raised platform, are all the common things I start with. In addition to loving pet homes, many of my pups go to show and performance homes where they travel and go to new places including hotels every weekend.  I want my pups to have the best chance of success with their new owners and a stable temperament is extremely important! Below you can see one of my 2020 litters on a trip to the beach at 6 weeks old.

Please review the Puppy Information page BEFORE filling out an application or making contact about a puppy.
If you do not have the time to carefully review the Puppy Information page in full, then you definitely do not have the time for a Bellaclan Border Collie! Our ideal home for a puppy is one who plans well in advanced of the pups arrival giving themselves ample time to properly prepare versus homes who don't care about where a pup is from and just want a puppy immediately, but don't really give themselves ample time to truly learn the most current training, rearing, and vaccination methods. Please contact me well in advanced of when you want a ready to patiently wait! In the mean time, we are happy to direct you to plenty of information in the form of videos and reading material, just ask! We want our pups to be in forever homes with individuals who have taken the time to educate themselves properly.  Over these past 20 years we have found that the homes willing to be patient and learn in advanced, end up being the better homes for our dogs!
We do not overbreed our girls and want to give each litter enough training, attention, and socialization; we do NOT have pups on the ground all year long. We always have a long list of about 15+ approved homes for our puppies before they are even born.The wait time really varies between 0 to 6 months and it is very hard to predict. The rare time that we happen to have a dog or pup available "right now", it will be posted below, publicly. If you are on our waiting list you are more than welcome to call or text me for an update in regards to who is in whelp. We will share xray and ultrasound images as they become available. PLEASE realize that bitches (female dogs) only come into season/heat once every 6-9 months and we do not breed them every single time. Often when they live together they cycle together so we often have most litters born around the same time, in January and July, and ready to go home two months later.
