Promoting sound breeding practices and disease research.
Triple Crown winners don't just happen. It takes a well-bred, pure stock thoroughbred horse to rise to the challenge. That's where we come in.
Coming from only the purest and finest of bloodlines, we breed and train our Collies to be structurally and mentally sound. Our dogs are house dogs first, and working dogs second. They need to energy to run an agility course in hot weather, and the sense to come in and lie down and watch TV with the family. Achieving both these ends is our breeding challenge.
Breeding & Training purebred Collies.
Fireside Collies begin in purebred dogs in 1981. We are members of the Collie Club of America (CCA), the Collie Health Foundation (CHF), Southern California Collie Club (SCCC), The American Working Collie Club (AWCA), Valley Hills Obedience Club (VHOC), and Therapy Dogs International (ret.) (TDI) Our dogs are all genetically and medically tested for soundness. Where possible, they are registered with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) We are proud of our beautiful rough and smooth collies and all they have accomplished in many sports. We compete exclusively in American Kennel Club (AKC) shows; not because they are better but because there are only so many hours in a day. At this time all our dogs happen to be tri-color, but that is just a coincidence. We love Collies of all colors and varieties! Please look around our site and see our beautiful fur-babies.
