Successful collie breeders in Florida… raising, training and showing top quality, healthy, intelligent normal-eyed collies since 1962.
HOLMHAVEN COLLIES are intelligent. They have earned over 175 obedience and rally titles, including eighteen Utility Degrees. Two of our collies received Dog World Awards for their accomplishments in recognition of outstanding achievement. Elected Duke of Holmhaven, UD earned membership in Morris Animal Foundation’s Mark 500. As Collie breeders, we’ve been blessed with the ability to provide Collie lovers in Florida with loving additions to their families.
HOLMHAVEN COLLIES are beautiful, but we prefer to show in obedience rather than conformation events. As collie breeders, we have bred Champions. This is in spite of the fact that we don’t sell to “show kennels”. Our collies for sale, first and foremost, must live in a home and be part of a family where they are loved for themselves. Their show accomplishments should only be in addition to their primary function—family member. As a collie breeder in Florida, we maintain a small number of collies that all live in our home as our companions.
HOLMHAVEN COLLIES have ability. As a collie puppy breeder, we want them to have the natural herding ability for which they were bred. This is one reason our collies for sale are such excellent family dogs. They care about home and want to protect their “flock.” Their herding instinct makes them especially good with children.
HOLMHAVEN COLLIES are healthy. We know that you want a healthy, sound collie. All our collie puppies are guaranteed to be healthy and free from congenital defects. All our breeding collies are normal-eyed (75 percent to 85 percent of the collies in the US are affected) and many are non-carriers of the collie eye anomaly. Our collie puppies for sale in Florida have eye certificates or are confirmed to be normal-eyed or non-carriers through DNA testing of themselves or their parents. By years of selective breeding for function as well as beauty, HOLMHAVEN collie breeders can assure you of receiving a dog that will make you proud and happy.
HOLMHAVEN COLLIES love to play. Here they are having a good time: Check out Holmhaven Collies at Play.
From The Atlantic Monthly, on “Finding a Dog”: Select your dog from among those being bred for ability and temperament–whether you want the dog to perform a function or merely to serve as a pet.
