Welcome to Dunwurkn Border Collies...
Dunwurkn we will always strive to produce quality dogs for quality
homes, specializing in breeding performance dogs for performance
owned and trained many different types of dogs for over 17years and
first fell in love with Border Collies in 2001 when my first BC a
Black/White male - Buddy, came to me as a rescue
dog and hence started my love of the breed, when Buddy was 3 yrs old i
decided that another of this fabulous breed could fit into my
household, this time i decided that a pedigree
BC was what i wanted as i had become involved with competition Agility
and was training in Flyball and Obedience and had learnt enough to realise
the benefits of owning dogs with a known pedigree, so i embarked on a
two year journey of searching for another Border Collie...
Finally in January 2005 Coco
(Wottapud Roki Road) came into my life bred from Wottapud Kennels in
Gympie QLD, Coco is a highly driven Choc/White Female who currently
enjoys training and competing in various dog sports such as, Agility,
Flyball, Frisbee, and Herding. Coco is my foundation bitch and the
reason i have decided to embark on breeding these beautiful canines.
Her motivation to work and her extreme ability for dog sports makes me
just love the breed all the more.
In July 2006 GT (Borderiver Gin and Tonic) came into our lives, bred at Borderiver Kennels in Morayfield
QLD. GT a Black/White Female although not as highly driven to work as
Coco will also be training and competing in the various Dog Sports just
like Coco and Buddy and is growing up to be a very impressionable girl
and is showing a lot of potential...
November 2007 seen yet another addition to my ever growing family with the introduction of Focus
(Faithet Woody Willow) a Chocolate Merle Tri Colour Boy, he has a very
sweet nature and is showing to have a good amount of the drive needed
for Dog Sports, he has sired a few litter for both myself and Wottapud
Kennels, with a nice variety of colours, all pups have grown with great
June 2009 and we have made the decision that there will be another addition with the arrival of Rumour (Dunwurkn Spring Fling) this girl is a Dunwurkn puppy who was originally sold as an Agility dog, but has now returned home... Rumour a Choc/White female from Coco's first litter, has the most gorgeous temperament is very much like her dam Coco in soo many ways, we look forward to many great times with this girl...
March 2012 and we welcome the addition of Logic (Dunwurkn
Logical Intent), he is bred here at Dunwurkn out of Coco by a UK
Sire(Xpreshun of Mr Chips) by surgical Frozen Semen implant, by Phil
Thomas from QLD Vet Specialists, he was the only puppy conceived and at
just 8 weeks is showing great promise with great desire to play and
train.. I am looking forward to the next couple years of our adventures
together... He will be a potential future stud dog for us here...
August 2012 and we have made the decision that there will be yet another addition to the Dunwurkn clan with the arrival of Decoy
- (Dunwurkn Without A Doubt) a gorgeous Choc Merle girl from GT's last
litter, sired by Focus i am certainly looking towards many fun times
ahead with this girl...
August 2015 and we finally welcome Lark (Shepherds Own Lark), Lark is a Black Tri female born in Germany her Sire is a UK dog i have admired for many years. Lark arrived in Australia in April and after a short stay in quarantine, spent a few months in training on sheep before coming to live with us.
Owning and breeding Border Collies is not something that i take for granted, each new addition to the family is done so with lots of thought and will only be done so when i feel we are ready to give the time to raise a puppy it deserves, each litter born is done so with the utmost care, planning and attention and i put everything possible into raising a sound healthy litter, so as its new family can enjoy the love it has to give for many years to come, for this reason i am very select to which homes my puppies will go, I believe that owning a Border Collie is for life and for this reason will not sell to other breeders who's only aim is to use them for breeding and then rehoming them. That is not a life that any Border Collie should have to live, my Border Collies are my family, all of my dogs/puppies are bought up in a family environment living inside or outside the house, all puppies will be whelped inside not in kennels, and socialized with children and other dogs before going into their new homes. I do understand that sometimes circumstances change and that a puppy/dog may need to find a new home and for this reason it is my policy that every puppy/dog is to be either returned to me, or can remain in its home until i find a suitable home for them...
