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.

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.
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
