Welcome to the home of Power Tripp Border Collies and Working Bearded Collies

Welcome to Power Tripp Border Collies and Working Bearded Collies...aka The Shaggy Dogs. My overall goal is to produce dogs that are sound in body, mind and spirit. Work ethic, intelligence, athletic abilities and endurance are all the features that should come naturally to both a Border Collie and Working Bred Bearded Collie.  In the modern world their purpose and "jobs" have changed as the farming lifestyle is becoming something of the past and sheep herding is done more as a hobby or for trialing.  Today these dogs are making themselves known as a top competitors in nearly all areas of performance.


To preserve as much of the natural instincts of the Border Collies and Working Beardies I strive to maintain the calm, sensible temperament that goes into making a good sheepdog.  I do not believe that a dog needs to be "crazy" to be a good performance dog.  An "off switch" is something I find very important in these breeds. Since our dogs live our home with us and we do have a young son (which means other young kids running around here all the time!) the dogs need to be very well socialized. Our puppies are born in our living room and raised underfoot as part of the family. Our dog's health and well being is our number one priority and we ensure this by feeding them an all natural, raw diet and practice a minimal vaccine and chemical free rearing protocol for all of our dogs and puppies.  We are always here for 24/7 support and advice for the lifetime of our pups.  When you adopt one of our puppies you truly become part of the Power Tripp Family...and we have a very tight knit group of amazing owners that are also always there for encouragement and support as well.  

I breed one or two litters a year and have an on going waiting list. Please be sure you read all of the information provided about our Breeding Program before contacting us for a puppy.  If you should have any questions, comments or require further information please contact us.
