2012 NEWS Introducing "Scotty of Quaker Farm"
It has been many years since we have introduced an American rough Collie sire into our
breeding program. But, we really needed a tri-color male to breed to
our blue merle females, as well as our sable merle females. After carefully researching our options,
we decided to make an investment in an American Collie puppy dog.
We have named him "Scotty" and look forward to working with Scotty over the next year as we
his potential, his personality and temperament, and level of intelligence.
It is a lengthy process, but we
must be sure that Scotty complements our carefully developed
lines and the high degree of aptitude of our dogs.
So far, he
has been really fun to work with and train.
We brought Scotty home to Quaker Farm when
he was 7 weeks
old, and settled him into our gentle, but formative, puppy imprint
training program that very day.
Scotty is already proving himself to be highly intelligent and willing -
with consistent, lovingly firm
direction - and we are very pleased with his progress so far!
We think natural food is better than commercially processed dog food. Quaker Farm Collies think so. You should too.
Just ask Laddie and Cricket ...
