At Creekside, we strive to find good breeding matches for every litter we produce. Breeding two dogs together just because they are both Border Collies does not a good puppy make! Breeding mediocre to mediocre will also do nothing for the breed. When we select mates for our dogs, we look for a good temperament, outstanding working talent, health, soundness and biddability. We try to keep up to date with the bloodlines of dogs we like so we can be sure we are introducing proven pedigrees into our own lines. We also try to not focus on one specific trait, but rather the whole dog and how he will compliment the chosen mate. So far, we have been pretty lucky with our choices!

Taff is a very biddable, very natural worker with both pace and push. He wants to please but will take pressure without a meltdown. Light, heavy and confrontational sheep all respond quiety yet unquestionably to Taff's calm authority. He delights judges from both sides of the pond with his all business way with sheep. Taff has a solid, unflappable temperament, is good with dogs and people, and is very loyal. He has a lovely, well-balanced structure, with good front and rear angulation and overall strength.
