All of our puppies are raised with Puppy Culture

Frank and I were born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. We’ve met in 2003 on a social media/dating site. You can say it was love at first sight. 

In 2005 we moved to the US and after a few years of struggling and trying to make ends meet, we’ve established our own IT business. 

We started talking about getting a pet dog, Frank wanted a white Boxer girl, I was not sure yet. Over the years we worked with all kinds of customers until one day we got to meet an elderly lady who shared her home with 4 chocolate color Border Collies. Again, it was love at first sight. 

We were mesmerized by their personalities, playfulness, the intelligence in their eyes, their eagerness to please – at that point we knew we don’t want any other dog but a Border Collie. 

I’ve started researching the breed trying to learn everything I could about it, making sure it was the right breed for us, I’ve contacted breeders, I was doing my “homework”. Even though it took 4 whole years, we did not realize  just how very little we know, when we thought we were ready to pull the trigger – and took home our first born, Lily…

We never in our wildest dreams were thinking about showing our dog but she came with a show contract so we thought “why not?” – then at our second show we got an answer to that question: because she was not the quality you usually show in the conformation ring. This was when we met our future breeder, turned mentor who took us under her wing and ever since supported and helped us every step of the way. Since then things went sour but we have learned a lot and wouldn’t change much.

Unfortunately Lily’s body structure prevents her from doing what she absolutely loved to do: herding and agility. She’s not allowed to do straining exercise anymore which is why we’re focusing doing rally and obedience with her. 

We’ve fallen in love with her personality, we thought she’d deserve a much more sound body… And this is how the idea came, that we want to breed the “perfect” Border Collie: beautiful, structurally and mentally sound dogs who are willing to work and eager to please but if you want they’ll be your perfect couch potato for those days when you just want to snuggle under the blanket. 

Our dogs are being regularly exercised both physically and mentally, we’re competing with them in the conformation ring, and they’re currently in training in competitive obedience, rally, agility and herding.
