In November of 2016, we had the great delight of working Crosswood Bob with Aled Owen, the master of sheep dog handling. Some of Mr. Owen's accomplishments are

- 2 time World Sheepdog Trials Champion

- 4 time International Sheepdog Society Supreme Champion

- 7 time winner of the Welsh Open Championship

- 9 time winner of the North Wales Sheepdog Society Open Championship 

- Winner of BBC TV One Man and his Dog doubles title

 - 3 time winner of the Welsh National Championship

 - 6 time Welsh Aggregate Champion.

It was a privilege to work Crosswood Bob with Mr. Owen and glean from his vast knowledge and skill.

One of Bob and Skye's pups, Crosswood Tessa, was taken by her owner at 6 months old to a farm to evaluate herding ability. She did exceptionally well on her first exposure to working! Tessa lives in Oklahoma with her family.

Coming from only the purest and finest of bloodlines, we have carefully selected which dogs we breed. We are intentional with our breeding practices, producing only a few litters a year and breeding only dogs who are sound and have natural working ability. Before our dogs are bred, their hips are examined by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals and certified free of hip dysplasia. We also breed only dogs whose DNA match-up guarantees their offspring to be free of Collie Eye Anomaly. Our pups are well socialized, being raised with our children and strangers, exposed to livestock, cats, and other dogs.

Breeding & Raising Border Collies

Working and companion dogs for the glory of God.

Crosswood's Candy started her tracking career as a little puppy (the video shows her at 14 weeks), and she continues to progress in obedience. She's also begun agility. Candy lives in South Carolina with her devoted owner.

Dash was also featured in TSC's new line, "4Health."

Superb Border Collies don't just happen. It takes intentional screening and breeding to produce a quality working companion.

For over 15 years, we have been striving to produce the true Border Collie - one with a stable personality, intelligent mind, and the ability to excel on the working farm, in trial competitions, or as active family pets - all while maintaining the health, loyalty and gentleness that makes this breed a beloved companion.

In early 2017, Crosswood's Dash became the face of Science Diet's new line of dog food, "Youthful Vitality." We are so pleased!
