breeding quality Rough-coat Collies
                 in Adelaide, South Australia

'Tess' enthroned, watching her daughter 'Magic' do all the work.
           Collieston was established in 1997 and is situated in Myrtle Bank,  an inner suburb of Adelaide,
on a little over a quarter of an acre, where the dogs live as house-pets with free outside access,
and are exercised at least daily in the parks and gardens that characterise the city's south-eastern suburbs.
Our breeding stock, primarily our girls, have been bred, selected, and socialised with an emphasis on temperament,
as well as physical balance and beauty to create a line of good-looking, good-natured and intelligent pets
of' 'show quality', but more importantly, sound healthy quality companions. 
    Collieston's aim is that these working dogs should indeed be able to work, not necessarily in the traditional skills
of sheep-herding, given Australia's climate, but in some field of activity that allows them to develop their potential
for teamwork with their handler, while maintaining their breed standard criteria for beauty and dignity.    
We concentrate on producing well-coloured and marked Sables, and shaded Sables, with some Tri-colour input
for depth of shading when appropriate.  
      We have a very personal breeding 'program', producing puppies only every two or three years,
when we know each puppy is already wanted and appreciated, and when we're
looking to add to and strengthen our own family lines.

'Magic' (above) was my greatest joy to work with in Obedience and Agility, and after retiring from these sports,. discovered Rally at the age of 13, and showed the youngsters how to do it.

Her daughters 'Ginnie' & 'Sage' (below) and grand-daughter 'Rowan' have all taken Rally  further, and compete in Obedience, Rally, Agility, and Dances Wih Dogs
