Hill Border Collies
Welcome to Bur Hill
We are a small farmstead located in the Tillsonburg area of
southern Ontario (30 minutes southeast of London). In addition
to homeschooling our 4 children and running a commercial, architectural
and fine art photography business, we also raise purebred Border
Collies. Our niche is in providing pups that make wonderful
family pets for active families. Our pups also do well in recreational
sports, herding, service and therapy work.
a beautiful black and white rough coated border collie who is
very bright and teachable. Her temperament is a perfect cross
of her mother's liveliness and her father's laid back friendliness.
She is very affectionate and has that soft disposition that
we like so much.
Like all our dogs, she loves children
and enjoys playing their games.
Nellie is a
very sleek and stylish rough coated border collie who has
the great looks and moves of her mom Cindy. Besides being
a real softy who loves affection and being walked by our children,
Nellie is also a quick learner and likes to please. Pedigree
Skye is a super
friendly black and white border collie from Katie and Glen.
She is so gentle and easy going and is the perfect playmate
for our children. Her eagerness to please and her affability
have earned her the distinction of being one of the most loveable
dogs on our property. She enjoys meeting people and going
to town on shopping errands. She is the epitome of a great
family dog. Pedigree
Jen is a beautiful
black and white border collie out of Nellie and Glen. She
is what we have been hoping to produce from Cindy's line (Nellie
is Cindy's daughter). Jen embodies the classic style and focus
that Cindy and Nellie have, plus she has plenty of Glen's
warmth and amiableness. She is a busy girl who enjoys being
active, yet has an excellent off switch and really likes to
snuggle and be with our children. Pedigree
Janie is an
absolute doll who is so endearing and affectionate. She is
hopelessly happy like Glen her dad and will do anything to
please. Playing ball with our children, sleeping on her back,
and having a big snuggle are her favourite pastimes. She has
been effortless to raise and goes along with whatever the
plan is. We are thankful for such a delightful addition. Pedigree
Sasha is a gorgeous tri-colour female who is
just what we have been waiting for. She is very athletic, is
quite the clown, is incredibly amiable, and on top of this has
beautiful tri-colour markings. She is full of energy and has
been fun to train. Besides playing pranks on our other dogs,
Sasha enjoys playing ball and retrieving. Pedigree
Steffi is the eccentric one. She is such a sweetie, is so affectionate and has such quirky ideas about things. She goes to town regularly for walks, is energetic and loves playing ball. We enjoy her very much and appreciate her winsome personality. Pedigree
Glen is a handsome
black and white border collie we have brought over from England.
He is very smart, has lots of spunk, is very outgoing and
loves children. Although energetic and playful, he also has
an excellent off switch and is very easy going. We are so
pleased how similar in temperament he is to Roy. Glen gets
along wonderfully with everyone including all other dogs and
truly epitomizes a happy dog. Pedigree
Andy is a gorgeous
red and white, ISDS registered border collie who we imported
from England. He has amazed us with how smart, well-behaved
and teachable he is. He has a wonderful, easy going attitude,
has integrated fantastically with all our dogs, and is a lot
of fun to work with. This dog is truly happy! Nothing spoils
his day. Pedigree
Robbie is a
gorgeous dark red and white border collie we brought over
from England. He is a super friendly, affectionate dog with
lots of spunk and speed. He has that wonderful traditional
British border collie temperament which we seek after. This
is what makes for a great family pet. Pedigree
Flynn is a
handsome golden red and white border collie we brought over
from England. We are delighted with his congenial manner and
quickness to learn. He is such a happy boy and is always ready
to play with our children. He has pleased us with his biddable
temperament and bubbly personality. Pedigree
Jake (Chikaramor Starstruck from Lancashire England). In the spring of 2013 we had the pleasure of going over to Lancashire England to pick up Jake. We were so thankful for the opportunity to obtain such a wonderful dog and we have not been disappointed. He is such a smart, affectionate and easy going boy who loves to please. Jake comes from very accomplished working, sports and show lines and this manifests continually in how quickly he learns and how sociable and mature his deportment is. Once again we have been rewarded by looking to the UK for our breeding stock. We are grateful for the dedication, hard work and high standards of Chikaramor and Littlethorn kennels. Pedigree
puppies are vet checked, dewormed, micro-chipped, have first
shots, and are well socialized in a family setting. They are
sold on a spay/neuter contract and are registered with the
Canadian Border Collie Association. Our puppies are 8 weeks
old before we allow them to go to their new homes. This enables
them to become well socialized with ourselves and our four
children before they go to be with their new owners.
Temperament is one of the most important aspects of our dogs.
They adore children, are very loving and gentle, and are wonderful
All of our breeding stock has been tested clear for hips and
eyes (CERF). Also, all our dogs are DNA normal for Collie
Eye Anomaly (either by testing or by parentage).

preferred method of initial contact is by email. We are careful
where we place our pups. We are also very busy with our dogs
and we do receive a lot of email. So please be patient for
a reply. Update: Due to the sheer volume of phone calls we receive each day by people who do not respect our preference of initial contact by email, we have taken our phone number off our website. We welcome inquiries by email. After contact by email has been established we can talk on the phone.
We ask that if you are interested
in our pups, please tell us where you live, your age, some
details about yourself and your living and work situation,
how physically active you are, previous experience with dogs
and how much time the pup will be left alone during the week.
Also, please include your phone number. One
line emails will not receive a reply! If
you do not have the time to tell us about yourself, then a
border collie is not the breed for you!
