Welcome to Uherdit Border Collies! My name is Debbie Willoughby and border
collies are my passion. Our farm is located in a small town in southern
Indiana on 16 acres of border collie paradise. I have been training and
showing dogs for the past 16 years. While I started with Great Pyrenees
I always had in interest in border collies, but knew that as a
professional horse trainer I did not have the time to commit to them.
After showing dogs for a few years I realized I wanted to commit my life
to my dogs and so Uherdit began.
My first border collie, Scotty was ready to do it all, and he loved it to
work. Unfortunately, at just one year of age, we discovered that he had
sever hip displaysia and several other health issues. Because of my
experience with Scotty, I am dedicated to doing everything I can to
ensure any puppy I breed will stand the test of time. All of my dogs
have to pass all of their health testing, as well as have the instinct
to herd. Their instinct to herd is what gives them the drive and work
ethic to do every thing else that border collies are so well known for.
About our breeding program
I would like to take a minute to discuss the importance of a sound
breeding program. Here at Uherdit Border Collies each of our dogs must
meet our high standards of sound structure, herding instinct, and sound
temperaments. Each of our dogs and bitches have had their hip x-rays
submitted to OFA and or PennHip for evaluation. Their eyes are cleared
via either CERF or CEA/DNA through Optigen. Most importantly each of
them is thoroughly evaluated on their conformation. We believe that it
is important to know each dogs strengths and faults so that breedings
can be planned to produce puppies of exceptional quality.
Color is always a secondary factor in planning our litters.

About our border collies
What’s the fun in having all these border collies if you don't do anything
with them? Here on the farm we herd on a regular basis and have a
monthly herding clinic. We travel quite a bit to show including herding
trials, conformation and obedience shows, and the occasional disc dog
event. While we do not compete in agility ourselves, several of our
offspring are doing quite well in agility.
Border Collie Obedience --- shows how well the Border Collie can learn
to work with us and our cues and take direction.
Border Collie Herding --- shows the natural instinct and ability of the
Border Collie. This is what they were bred to do!
Border Collie Conformation --- shows their structure, movement and
A good Border Collie should be of sound temperament, body and be able to
do it all. That is what we strive for when we breed or buy a Border
