Nahrof Border Collies

 

Our story so far.......

Nahrof began in 1989 with the birth of our first litter and since then our kennel has endeavoured to produce Border Collies which excell in soundness and temperament while still maintaining the breed's natural tractability and desire to work - whether that 'work' involves the show, performance or herding arenas or as a well trained companion dog.

Our foundation bitches were "Brie" Gotrah Celtic Brie CD TDX (1986-2003) and "Bonnie" Aust Ch Kantalpa Tuxn Tailz (1988-2001) and the success of our kennel has been based on progeny bred from these two great (and very much missed) girls.

The other bitch to feature in our early breeding success was "Scully" Aust Ch Wiralee Moon Shadow (1996-2012) - a lovely bitch and a great producer who enjoyed her retirement years (and her birthday!) with Joy's mum Lorna.

                                 "Scully"   

 

In recent years the Nahrof "Team" has grown to include our friends Melissa Dean and Debra Richardson and they  have become an integral part of our kennel.  We are also blessed to have the support of Vicki & Daryn Collins (NSW) and Kaye & Craig Hansen; Matt Fisher & Sam Ryder and Linda Norman in South Australia who fill their homes with Nahrof dogs and campaign them with great success.....these friends enable our continued showing and breeding success and we will be forever grateful for their friendship and support.
