Bryning Border Collies

and Working Cocker Spaniels

About us...

My affix 'Bryning' is pronounced 'Bry (as in Bryan) - ning' and is actually the name of an area near where we live in Lancashire. My first working sheepdog was registered on the Working Trials and Obedience register simply as 'Bryning Bob' because I couldn't think of a fancy fandangled name at the time and we lived on Bryning Lane. My next WSD soon followed, a little chocolate tri called Spud, he was registered as 'Bryning Hot Potato' (getting more adventurous by then see!). When it came to applying for an affix with the KC for registering my litters Bryning seemed like the obvious word to choose and it was granted as my first choice and so began Bryning Border Collies.

We are a hobby show and dog sport 'kennel' based in the North West of England; established in 2002 although I owned and competed working sheepdogs and border collies for quite a number of years before then. I initially started out training and competing in obedience and flyball and eventually decided that I wanted to breed good looking, good natured, keen, lively and biddable border collies…the way I liked them to be!!

I started with a base of pure working bred dogs (mainly line bred to Sadghyl Pip CDX UDX) with a few well bred show dogs to add some type and glamour. The dogs we have of show breeding are from proven working/dogsports lines as ultimately for me, the working drive of the border collie is paramount.

Not all my dogs live with me, I have several living with family and friends. I try to do as much as possible to keep them (and myself!) entertained from their daily runs to our flyball and agility training sessions. Most weekends are taken up with breed shows, BFA flyball tournaments and, more recently, agility shows too.

The breeding side of things is an extension of the hobby, an interest in dogs generally and Border Collies specifically with a particular focus on genetics stemming from my degree in Animal Science.

Although border collies are the breed I'm most passionate about, I am a dog enthusiast through and through and just adore the working breeds. Along with the border collies I have also owned working cocker spaniels, parson russell terriers, a super little working bearded collie and lurchers. 

I have trained and competed flyball and agility with my dogs over the years as well as competing succesully in the showring both here in the UK and abroad.  I've been lucky enough to have won top honours at Crufts in both the showring and flyball arena with my own home bred Bryning dogs.
