Winpara Border Collies was established in 1997 and is located in sunny Perth, Western Australia.
Whilst the prefix is relatively new I have been involved in breeding and showing dogs since the age of 8 with my parents "Siancof" Pembroke Welsh Corgis. I fell in love with Border Collies sometime around 1988 and spent many years learning about the breed and showing dogs for other people.
In 1996 I was finally in a position to own my first show girl. Aust Ch Rhonabwy Secret Whispers ADX JD "Pia" came from Chris at Rhonabwy Kennels and became the foundation of Winpara with much of my current stock tracing back to her.
I own and run my own Boarding Kennel
(Greenacre Kennels) and participate in conformation showing, agility and occasionally herding with my dogs. I only keep a few dogs of my own at home as I like to give them as much individual attention as possible. I breed on average 1-3 times a year and occasionally have puppies or older dogs available to suitable homes. All of my breeding stock is hip/elbow scored and periodically eye tested. My breeding dogs are DNA tested for CEA, CL and TNS and many are also DNA profiled and pedigree assured.
I am a licensed Championship Show judge for group 5 (Working) and Group 6 (Utility) and hope to enter Group 4 (Hounds) as a trainee in 2012.
I hope you enjoy browsing my website, I am very proud of my dogs achievements thus far and look to the future with much enthusiasm.
