Champion Foxearth Flock Master's recent critique's:

Smooth Collie Club of GB Championship show

Open Dog, 6 entries, 1 absentee.

1. Ms A French’s CH. Foxearth Flock Master for Breckamore. My heart jumped when I saw this dog. For me there was no doubt about this being the best dog in the entry. What a smooth collie. Everything fits like hand in a glove. Splendid silhouette with the typical slight rise over the loin. It was no dip behind the shoulder which we see so often. He had good bone and was perfectly balanced. He moved freely and it was a pleasure to see him both standing and moving. You can fault them all and to be critical I would like this stunning smooth’s back skull slightly less deep. But let me say this clearly: I loved him. He was an impressive representative for his breed. CC, BOS, RBOB. Judge Charlotte Hoier.

Dogs bred here doing well for their owners  






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 previosuly 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 and are tightly based on this and the Sandcastle's Kennel of Finland, 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. 

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!
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.

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.

                                                                                                                        Ann French.

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