Well I am married and we have 9 kids, 5 grandkids, 6 dogs and 3 cats..and counting!! I know I know! before you say... we have 4 home grown kids all grown and married and we adopted 5 more. We have kids 41yrs to 13 yrs old in all colors! Our friends called us the United Nations family! We live just south of Prince George British Columbia on 5 fenced acres. I home school the 5 kids and we get to hang out with fur family and puppies! Blessed or what! My kids all help out around the home and with all the animals and are present at every whelp! Pups are handled from birth and used to kids, dogs and cats and anything else we might have! We are just a hobby breeder.When I say "just" I mean we are serious. We love our dogs and having occasional puppies. We are meticulous on health testing. We breed only from the best, to hopefully produce the best, and only sell to the best. We don't sell any pups for outside dogs. Only pups that are going to be part of a family and/or therapy dogs etc. We only have one pair of Collies . We don't breed for the sake of it, I don't breed unless I have an interest and a wait list OR a purpose, meaning someone wants a pup to train as a therapy dog or search n rescue etc..as well as a best friend. our dogs live in the home we don't have a kennel building. All pups are born and raised in the home and are with us constantly as we homeschool.
