The first is to provide you with the quality pup that fits your personal needs as a loving companion and playmate.
The second was that we were disillusioned with the Border Collie breeding agenda upheld by many people in Canada. This being one that is expressing the breeding of dogs for color patterns instead of paying attention to the genetics behind why the Border Collies were culled to remove the very color patterns that are being flaunted and expressly publicized for fashion. This attraction for certain colors and patterns are bringing into the breed a wealth of health issues and behaviour issues. This being said, those attributes that I have carefully worked to prevent in the breed are now causing the general public to believe that those are the natural traits of the breed, not those brought in by breeding problem genetics of a known nature through a known avenue.
Our lines were developed to have the dogs be of a nature that they will not only have their natural instincts for breeding but they will be smart, as in super intelligent. You know how the commercials say that dogs do not see color? My dogs, not only see color, but they can pick out the color of ball I ask for on-demand. If I say find the red ball or the blue ball they will walk past the wrong color of ball and continue to look for the correct one until they find it. That is smart to the point of intelligence above the young child. How old is your child before they consistently know their colors? And also obey until they get the correct toy? And can put away their toys when asked? The nest thing is their ability to learn to live in a household and exhibit manners. By this I mean that they do not rip every toy they own to pieces, they do not destroy your furniture, they treat both their own and your belongings with respect. They do not jump all over the visitors or Grandma. They do not have to be all over your living furniture and you do not have to move a dog to allow a guest to sit down. When I have company, I can set the tea & cookies out on a low table and leave them out overnight and BeeJay who was raised indoors from 6 weeks of age, will not touch them.... ever! She also will not take her own cookie from over-top of her bed off the kennel top. She does not jump on people and will not bother visitors non-stop for attention until they are frustrated enough not to visit anymore. There are people who do not necessarily enjoy your dog as much as you do. It is important that your dog have manners that encompass being a good citizen of the world. By this I mean, that they should be respectful of other being's space, and be calm and controlled in their manners. This does not mean you will not have an energetic dog who loves to play or work, but it does mean that you and your dog will be welcome in so many places that you will enjoy your relationship so much more than you could ever imagine!
Now that you see what I expect to have for a dog in my home, you will begin to see what I want out of my lines. A top herding dog, that could also be a top agiaity dog, or a top service dog or the best friend a little girl or boy ever had, the one that listens to all their secrets, listens to them read, and guards them with their life amd loves them to the bottom of their heart!
The second issue is that the direction of the breeding of Border Collies in Canada for designer colors is bringing into the breed all kinds of health issues that we have not had in the past. Why? Because the old breeders culled those dogs! It is a hard issue for the general public to understand, but in farming, it is understood that the problem genetics have to be eliminated. If you breed dairy cows, you are not going to keep the lines of a cow that has low milk volume. This is counterproductive. You will not have the milk production required to stay in business. So... the same is with me! I can not breed dogs with genetic issues that are going to cause my owner to have to deal with expensive veterinary treatments. So ... I have made the hard choice to take my younger bitch out of circulation in the Border Collie, purebred lines and move to a different venue where I am not dealing with purchasers who want colors of dogs with know genetic issues. So we have moved to the F1 Toy Poodle x Border Collie cross to minimize health issues with the vitality of the crossbreeding of two genetically sound purebred bloodlines. To facilitate providing the dog that I felt would be of the highest possible calibre to provide the pup that will fill the need of your family for that well behaved and intelligent addition to your life with the healthy background in its family genetics to ensure that you have the best possible outcomes available with your new addition.
Now, I have done all the work possible to present you with a quality pup, the outcome after this is up to you. This means that you have to be dedicated to this little bundle of love to ensure that she or he has the degree of quality training and attention to ensure that it's agile mind and body have the stimulation and exercise required to keep it healthy and simulated to be able to be a well behaved and calm companion. This has to start right now, as you make your decision to make one of my pups a part of your family, you must also decide to dedicate yourself to this pup to be the best owner you can and educate yourself on all aspects of training your dog to love and obey you at all times. Please remember that this may one day save its' life! If it is in danger and dos not respond to your command, it could be seriously harmed or killed.
Now that you are probably well overwhelmed with all this, what do you get along with this cuddly little bundle of fur? Well to start with you get lifetime support from your breeder~ Me~! You also get a two-year health guarantee that your pup will be free of all testable health issues for the two breeds, or I will replace your pup with a pup of my choosing with the return of your pup. Also, the pup will have had its' first vaccinations and appropriate worm treatments, with a full veterinary puppy checkup. Your pup is being raised in my home and I will have been working or it's house training and basics. It will have been exposed to cats, children, doorbells, and as much of the world as is advisable for a pup of this age. You will guarantee that until it has reached the point of finishing up with the second set of vaccinations, that the pup will not be exposed to outside dogs (not normally living with you) or other animals. This includes no trips to the pet store or local dog park or your friend's house to visit their dogs and especially not housed in a community kennel where it could catch kennel cough. If it should be necessary for you in that time period to be away from your pup with out it being kept in its normal home, please discuss this before shipping or pick-up for possible layover kenneling here. Your pup will also be supplied with all appropriate paperwork such as Veterinary records.
Another perk from Wall 2 Wall is that we provide each of our pups with their Birth Certificate. This document helps to prove ownership, provides all pertinent information that you would need for your vet or other caregiver and also if your dog were to be stolen it provides you with proof of ownership having all the necessary records attached to the pup such as it's microchip number. Each pup leaving my kennel is implanted with an individual identification chip that allows you to ensure that you can identify your pup with a marker that is only able to be surgically removed and that would only be with great difficulty. This tracking chip is registered with AVID Corporation, a major microchip manufacturer and registry who all Vets, Rescues, and other similar groups contact in the event of a found or apprehended dog to trace the ownership of the dog. The dog would be traced back to me as the breeder. I have a network of people across Canada that can be accessed to go and rescue your dog in the event of it being found and turned in in a location away from your home. Such as if you had a car accident and were unconscious when taken to the hospital and the people who attended you did not realize your dog was travelling with you. They would have notified me of the dog being found, and I would locate you, and be able to find a way to reunite you with your dog or find someone appropriate to care for the dog until you were released from the hospital. Alternately, the base registration can be transferred to you for a fee. If you would like to have the form for the transfer, please remember to ask for one to be signed and forwarded to you.
