Kady and Phantom are pleased to announce the safe arrival of their puppies on 8th May 20013. 5 black and white dogs and 2 black and white bitches. For photos go to litter page'
Kady is a 3 year old agility girl. Last year was our first agility season, she took us from grade 1 to grade 4 in six months she is a great little dog. Phantom is also an agility dog. This year is his first full season. He is just 2 years old and has already been placed in grade 2. It is hoped that their pups will make exciting agility ( or indeed any dog sport ) prospects. Grandmother and Great Granddad are both good competition obedience dogs.
Both dogs are DNA tested clear for CEA,TNS and CL. Kady is clear for glaucoma. Both dogs are also hip scored Kady's score is 9 and Phantom's is 8.
Working homes ( as in agility, obedience etc) or very active pet homes only will be considered for these puppies. They will not make 'stay at home, sit by the fire' dogs, so if you don't want a VERY active dog please don't ask.
Kady goes Grade 4 at Honiton and South Devon show 23/9/12

Shamorel Border Collies are lucky to live in the heart of South Devon, with Dartmoor, and long river walks, on our doorstep, just made for Border Collies!
I had my first border collie in 1990 with the intention of just having just one to show and compete in obedience with. Well that intention lasted about 18 months, and I had to get a 2nd, and a 3rd, and a 4th, 5th and I hope soon a 6th .
My first border collie was Lydeardlea Sultan of Swing (aka Arran), my 2nd was his half brother Lydeardlea The Jazz Singer at Shamorel (aka Jazz). When a friend asked to use Arran at stud, I jumped at the chance, because I could see a 3rd border collie on the way, and lo and behold 4 months later Ringslade Molly Malone at Shamorel (aka Tess) arrived, that was 1996. When Arran was 12 years old another friend used him at stud, and I decided this was probably my last chance to have one of his puppies, so guess what, Aculsia Addicted to Swing at Shamorel (aka Will), arrived in 2002. When Will was used at stud I saw another opportunity for a puppy, so in 2005 Cocobola Singin' the Blues for Shamorel (aka Maddie), arrived. I hope there will be puppies from Maddie in the near future.
Border collies have now taken over my life, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I have many friends that I would never have made without my wonderful dogs. Through owning these versatile, intelligent dogs I started a new career in my late 40s, I went back to university for 3 years, to study companion animal behaviour. I graduated in 2004 and now have my own behaviour consultation practice (Hell2Harmony), and run training classes from puppy to competition level (Harmony).
My main interest now is agility. I compete with 2 of my dogs, most weekends through the summer. I am also a Kennel Club open obedience show judge. I also show the dogs in the breed ring from time to time. I do breed the occasional home reared litter. Puppies are brought up being used to all the everyday hustle and bustle of a household, and all household noises. They are introduced to other dogs, car travel, people (this includes children) and as many other objects and environments as I can find. They leave me with 6 weeks insurance, micro chipped, a comprehensive puppy pack and 15kgs of the puppy food they are weaned on. I offer a life time of help and advice and DO insist that if ever circumstances change, and the dog can no longer be cared for, he/she is returned to me, no matter what the age of the dog. I do not expect to find any of my dogs in a rescue centre.
