Design By Zest is set on 3 acres backing on to the Watagan State National Park where there is plenty of room for our dogs to run, play, take a swim in the dam or alternatively just chill around the house.  We strive to produce puppies who have excellent temperaments with a desire to work.  Soundness and health are extremely important to us.

We have owned Border Collies for many years. Our vision is to breed puppies that are happy, well balance so their families can enjoy them for many years.  Our puppies will be raised in the house with Puppy Culture enrichment for the first 8/10 weeks of their life, they will be socialised with both children and other dogs.  Our emphasis is on producing quality pups suitable for many disciplines and awesome companions.

We love our puppies and would love them to be raised as house pets and be part of your family.  Our puppies are from

energetic working line parents and would suit performance homes.  

Future Planned Litter

Zest is a high drive, power plus girl with a beautiful temperament. She is lots of fun to train, yet loves her cuddles on the lounge.  Zest is beautifully balanced and sound in structure, well muscled, clever, happy and loyal with a sweet personality and temperament. Zest is a fast and fun agility partner.


Zest is the first Border Collie in Australia & New South Wales to earn the

All puppies will be sold on limited register unless otherwise agreed upon with papers from Dogs NSW.
Health Screening
We place great importance on utilising the range of DNA genetic testing currently available to breeders.  Zest is DNA tested for hereditary conditions, this ensures that no puppy breed by us can be affected by these diseases.  All stud dog will also be DNA tested.    ZEST HIP XRAYS:  0:0.     ELBOWS: 0:0
Posh has recently had all her DNA tests for hereditary conditions and HIPS XRAYS:  2:2.  ELBOWS:  0:0 (breed average is 7.5) so an awesome result.
