Working and Herding Dogs

Margie Scott

My husband and I started Quarry House Kennels in 1978 breeding and training registered Border Collies and Welsh Corgis. Our goal and the very foundation of our kennel has been built around creating appreciation of the Border Collie, Welch Corgi and other herding breeds. Even today we keep working on our goal and are doing this in a number of ways. Bill goes to sheep and cattle trials with our Border Collies and has competed twice at the National Sheep Dog Championship along with many other local, state and regional trials. In addition, Bill with our dogs and sheep have provided hours of entertainment by giving herding demonstrations at fairs, festivals and other outdoor events as "Stockdogs In Action". We have appeared at the California State Fair, the Orange County Fair, the Sacramento Valley Scottish Games and Gathering, the Houston Livestock Show and others. If you have not had the opportunity to watch our Border Collies and Corgis in action be sure to check your TV Guide for the PBS television series "California Heartland" as they regularly appear in the segments pertaining to rural life and ranching.

So others with herding/working dogs may enjoy training and working with their dogs we conduct clinics and training classes at ranches through out the Western United States. If you or your organization are interested in putting on a clinic or attending training classes please contact us by dropping by our site, email or phone. In addition, while you are there, be sure to check out our additional resources that include books, videos and training aids.
