I hope you have time to enjoy visiting my home page and all the previous litters bred under my prefix.
If you are interested in joining
the team, please read the pages breeding
bitches (out of date) and
health statistics (included with each dogs own page) to get the idea of our aims. All those needs lots of updating,
but at least you`ll see what has the situation been in the beginning of my career as a Border Collie breeder.
Now at 2017 we x-ray hips, elbows, shoulders and back from the dogs we plan to use for breeding and have our dogs
eye tested as a puppy, adult eye test and gonioscopy our breeding stock and encourage all the dogs we`ve bred to do
the same too. We also either DNA test for CEA/CH, CL and TNS or use dogs who are clear by parentage/grandparents
and plan to start testing also for MDR1 in the near future too as well as any new diseases that will have test developed
to avoid getting any ill progeny. Unfortunately not all diseases have DNA based background or the DNA test has not been
developed so far. But we follow the science world and try to do our best to breed as healthy dogs as we can.
Zony and Lumi has been mated. We hope to see this interesting litter in the /early May 2017.
More information will at their litter information page or you can ask more by email from Sari Solanti .
We plan a litter for Kuura during spring / summer 2017. Our plans include combination where we
expect both high activity level for dog sports, excellent health and good looks for shows. If you are interested to hear more, contact me at
Collies and Shelties are bred three main aims in mind:
Health, temperament & suitability to different performance activities and correct structure. All of the puppies are looking for suitable
home who is seriously interested in some kind of performance activity/activities with their future puppy. Suitable puppy is chosen by
their temperament as they grow up, and final decission of their future home will be done by the age 6-7 weeks, when we hope to see
well enough the characteristics of the pups to know which of them suits best each of the future owners and their vise versa. Decission
of the of the future owners of each puppy will be based on temperament and suitability of the puppy and future owner, NEVER by the
colour or any other reason like that. None of our puppies are suitable for pets only, as they are far too active for that. Also, there are far
more suitable dogs if you are looking for a company for your daily walks. But if you are interested in active hobby with training a dog,
write me an email to sari (at) pikkupaimenen.com or call one of the owners of or team that lives near you and organize to meet some of
our dogs to hear more. Their phone numbers can be seen below.
All of our puppies
include lifetime 24/7 hour guarantee. In case of problems you can
- and we hope you do - contact us any time all through
the life of your dog since puppyhood till the old age. We try to solve the problms or help you to find place or person who can together with
us help you. We also love to share also the good news, all about successful trainings, and what´s best, if you ever happen to compete,
to hear the results of the competition is the best thing we know to wait, no matter if it has been first or last.
If you prefer to call
and perhaps also meet some of
team Pikkupaimenen dogs training, you can meet them around
