      Thank You for visiting Awesomecollies.com. We devoted this section for our new pet owners and others who could use this information to help with their purchase and training of the new family member. There is a great deal of information with a new puppy, so we wanted to offer this information as a reference only.

   If you’re one of our new owners and need further help, then either call us or e-mail us at awesomecollie2011@gmail.com anytime and leave your name and the puppy’s name. If you’re just visiting us and want to ask a question, we’ll answer the best as we’re able by e-mail. Please do not leave a reply on this site. We get an overwhelming amount of spam and it is hard to distinguish what messages are actually genuine.

      This section has to deal with Breeding and we wish to state that this is only our opinion and we want to inform potential new owners of precautions to consider whether you purchase from us or not.

     However, we do not recommend breeding dogs unless this is a love that cannot be quenched because it is an expensive venture with many ups and downs both financially and emotionally.

Again, Thank You for visiting us at Awesomecollies.com.



Intact females usually go into their first cycle by 8-12 mos. then every 6 mos. after. Don’t let other male dogs get  “hooked-up” with her. Any other breed of dog will “mess-up” her bloodline for 7 years.

Males are relentless in getting to a dam that is in heat (digging, jumping fences, fighting, roaming, etc.).

Intact females are in season approximately 21-24 days.

Intact females and males will roam looking for a mate if one is not available.

Males can smell a female in heat for up to a mile.

We recommend spay or neutering. Some owners are so impressed with their pet that they want another and breed that pet. We recommend that the owner go back to the Breeder and choose another from the same line instead. This will prevent any problems that breeding will cause and that the owner is not prepared to handle (Vet bills, space, bad pregnancies, extra puppies, excessive odors associated with puppies, etc.).

Spayed or neutered dogs live longer and healthier lives.

Consult your Vet before breeding. Wait until the female is 2 yrs. of age and fully developed (bones, joints, and mental maturity).

Never breed two Merle colored dogs together without a Veterinarian’s approval. Overall, this is not recommended because of genetics causing blindness and deafness in puppies.

You may never notice if a female Border Collie is in heat. They, (male and female), breed in secret for the most part and give no indication that it is time. Check her periodically for swelling and don’t entirely rely on a calendar.

You may want to find an outside kennel for your female Rottweiler. The dams are very, very messy when in heat.

A female Rottweiler’s mood will change and make them irritable when in heat, at birth, and while nursing.

Responsible breeding is not a money-making business.


       We hope these points of interest help you in your future. Some are fact and some are our opinion but if you’re in doubt we recommend consulting your Veterinarian or in the case of Service Dogs we recommend contacting the Dept. of Health and Human Services. Periodically, we update this list as people ask questions, so feel free to check with us occasionally.

Thank You again for visiting us at Awesomecollies.com.

We want to help you to have a companion… for a lifetime.
