Everything a dog should be.


Chance is an I.S.D.S. working, farm bred, boy. Bought in as I wanted to introduce some more English working blood to my lines. He has an excellent kind temperament and passes this on to his pups.

Always an extremely biddable boy he has a strong desire to work and an overwhelming desire to please, and to get things right. He is impossible to tire out and permanently on the go.

Chance has sired some very nice pups, many who now do very well in agility, all seem to have his strong drive and good nature. He has produced Tri, Tri blue merle and black & white, but does not seem to carry the genes for brown or dilute (blue).

As I am not getting any younger so breeding fewer litters, and I am not likely to use him at stud much now I feel it may be better for Chance if I were to consider letting him move on to a permanent home for his retirement, if you think you may be interested in taking on an older energetic, loving boy, who would love to go for long walks and adventures with you, please contact me and we can discuss this possibility.

He is fully health tested and hip scored. I do not advertise my boys generally at public stud, as they are here for my use. However if you are interested in using Chance at stud, please use my contact form to contact me, giving me details of your bitch, the health tests she has had and her breeding, and I will consider whether or not I think Chance may be suitable for her.

My stud terms are strictly payment at the time of mating. You are welcome to bring your bitch for up to 3 mating’s during her season to ensure we get the correct day.  If no pups result from the mating you are welcome to a second mating, within 12 months from her due date – free of charge – to the same or a different bitch. If you use one of my boys at stud, you are welcome to bring her back to me for a free ultrasound scan 28 – 35 days after the last mating. Please contact me for his stud fee.
