            Winning 6 CC'S & BOB'S this year

                                                  

         



Welcome to my web site. 

My name is Ann French. I have spent the past 33 years with Collies, starting with Roughs (see "The Past" page) a few of which I still own, however, the Smooth Collies have now become my passion and taken over.
This breed has completly captivated me and my life is spent amongst these beautiful dogs, I do not dabble in other breeds.

 I have previously served on The Smooth Collie Club of GB Committee, remaining a member of the club and judge the Breed as well as being a Donkey Breed Society Championship show judge.
 
My background is very equine / canine orientated including several dog behaviour courses completed including with Jan Fennel, The Dog Listener! 

My original Smooth Collies all come from the Famous Foxearth Kennels to whom I owe so much, all my dogs are happy collies with no health issues.  

It is my intention to breed quality, healthy dogs, many of which will make fabulous family members and a few going on to make an impact in the breed through the show ring and breeding. Indeed three of our homebred bitches are knocking in the door for their UK Titles, our young dog has 2RCC's and another bitch in Norway has a RCC.

I require my Collies to move soundly, being fit for function, and have wonderful head and eye appeal, take a look at my web site, I think you will agree the head & eye appeal is obvious!

Smooth Collies are officially a Kennel Club British Vulnerable Breed, although numbers are steadily increasing due to more people coming into the breed over the past few years.  Smooth collies are complete all rounders making wonderful companions and /or enjoy a more active life in Agility or even obedience.

I live just outside of Ripon in North Yorkshire, less than 11 miles from where the Famous Peterblue Kennels to which the Breed owes much were sited years ago.

 We are close to A1M & Leeds Bradford Airport and welcome visitors by appointment.

  
After many years of owning Rough Collies and an assortment of other breeds purely as pets,



                                                                                                                                                                              

                                                Tina my once in a liftime companion, originally rescued by The Dogs Trust, still much missed!



                     
       
I finally sucumbed to my wish for a smooth with the purchase of Lucy,
now a Champion!

Best Smooth Collie Veteran, Reserve CC and Best Veteran in Show at The Smooth Collie Club of Great Britain Championship Show under Breed Specialist Mr T Hayward (Foxearth)




Having always had a passion for Horses, Ponies and Foxhounds, then latterly my  American Miniature Donkeys, owning the most sucessful Championship winning Herd in the Country (www.minidonks.co.uk)  I have always been a fanatic about breed type and movement.  The Donkeys are still winning top awards including Top Miniature Donkey 2014, proof that I know how to breed quality stock!
I firmly believe one cannot really just learn correct conformation, you either understand it or you don't. 
I have applied the same principles to all the animals I have bred from, good heads and eye appeal, strong conformation coupled with the movement that this should give.

 

My Smooth Collie family has steadily grown over the past 10 years though quality rather than quantity is paramount, we occasionally have healthy quality litters always on the lookout for a future Champion to retain for ourselves,  see puppy page, as breeding is a science, well breed puppies are available occasionally for show and/ or pet homes providing they meet our strict criterior.
 All puppies are reared indoors.

My kennel is tightly based on the Foxearth /Sandcastle's lines, it is my intention to breed quality, healthy collies which will take Top honours in the showring and make their mark in the breed as well as great pets.
 I hope you enjoy looking through this web site and please do not hesitate to contact me.
