 Latest news!   Show season is over for 2021 due to judging commitments.       Manchester, British Collie Club and Crufts next.

 

 September saw two more Back to back Championship shows, Birmingham National followed by The Smooth Collie of GB at Stafford showground and yet again another amazing day for Breckamore!       Champion Breckamore By Design, aka Harry, took his 14th CC while our latest recruit Wynele Could Couldn’t she took her first RCC under Breed Specialist Mrs Sheila Beeney.                                             Mrs Beeney’s critiques are below.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 OD (4) 1 French’s Breckamore By Design. Blue Merle. Balanced head, rounded foreface, flat skull, arched neck of good length, good construction, moved well. Has matured into a lovely boy. CC   BOB

  PB (4) 1 Brown & Davies’ Breckamore Blessings At Wystry. Tricolour bitch who is well proportioned but has to be handled to appreciate as she is still learning to show herself to best advantage. Clean head, length of neck and level topline, her rear angulation is good with well let down hocks. 

  LB  (6) 1 Naulls’  Wynele Couldn’t Could She. Sable bitch with a clean wedge head, good expression, well proportioned with depth of chest and lovely bend of stifle with well let down hocks. Would like a bit more upper arm angulation but liked her overall type enough to give her the Res CC. 

Following on in the afternoon with the Smooth Collie Club of GB Championship show under Breed Specialist Mrs Birgit Hayward (Foxearth) yet again By Design topped the lot taking his 15th CC this time with Best of Breed and Best in Show which finishes off shows in 2021 for him!  His Daughter Breckamore Blessings at Wystry took Best Puppy in Show for her owners. Champions By Design By Design has finished the year winning BEST IN SHOW at two of The Smooth Collie Club of GB’s shows while our new Champion Wynele Alice Blue Gown 4 CC’s took BEST IN SHOW at the remaining Championship show back in August, a clean sweep of 3 Best In Show winners for Breckamore in 2021!

Puppies and Adults very occasionally available.   I breed for my next show prospect not to make money.

   I am always happy to recommend reputable, knowledgeable breeders with litters of Smooth or Rough Collies and strongly advise you visit and see the conditions the adult dogs are kept in before booking a puppy.

Please have patience …….. it’s a virtue when waiting for a puppy from the right breeder………..Better still arrange kennel visits BEFORE booking a puppy.  I do not deliver puppies in car parks / service stations.  Puppies leave from 9/ 10 weeks with Breeders contract, KC Reg, Micro chipped, wormed etc.

               

Breckamore Smooth Collies where located in the Heart of North Yorkshire in The Yorkshire Vet Country /James Herriot Country.  The Yorkshire vet was one of our vets.  We recently relocated to a beautiful property between Selby & Doncaster, very close to M18 / M62. Completely dog friendly with lots of room, dog kitchen, whelping area, covered outdoor area and paddocks.  We also have a few Rough Collies having started with them 38 years ago and a few “little people” in my Boston Terriers.

 Champion Foxearth Flock Master for Breckamore   19CC’s 9rcc’s

 Junior Warrant  19 CC’s  9 Rcc’s, Top Puppy in Breed,  Top Smooth Collie in Breed. Crufts Best Veteran 2020  

 

Breeder with Thirty Eight Years experience!

My kennel is one of the Top Smooth Collie kennels in the UK.   My name is Ann French.  As a child I loved dogs, any dogs and often “borrowed” neighbours dogs.  I started showing and breeding Rough Collies in 1982 and still own a few today.  I come from an equine background which I believe has given me an “eye” for conformation something I doubt can really be taught.  All my Smooth collies are from the Famous Foxearth lines which I have Ridgely stuck to and the results are plain to see.  My dogs have wonderful temperaments which is vital to cope with showing at the highest level also making fabulous family members. 

 I only breed for myself, not simply to make money always hoping my next Champion is in the next litter.  I am well aware that most people reading this will be looking for a pet / family member and not a show dog.  I would remind them that the Top show dogs must have impeccable temperament’s as well as being healthy examples of the breed which ultimately makes them ideal Sires and Dams of quality pet puppies, not all can be Champion material after all.

Advanced settings.

I am passed by The Kennel Club to award CC’s at Championship show level in Smooth Collies and have an appointment at LKA (The NEC venue) December 2021.  Prior to this I had an appointment at the World Show in Czech Republic in 2021 due to Covid I postponed. allowing. I have judged I

I judged Smooth Collies in Helsinki a few years ago.  

 I also judge Rough collies and take an interest in Boston Terriers.

To date, Not including the collies I have bred for others, my kennel has won 44 CC’s and countless Rcc’s.  Many Best in Show, Reserve Best in and Best Opposite Sex awards with multiple Best Puppy / Best Puppy in Show Awards.  Boston Terriers.
