Get to Know
A sire has the most influence on a breeding program, because he passes on his genetics to a large number of puppies. So careful selection of dogs is a must. We strive to select males that meet the collie standard for conformation in every way, and we use males with a good background of healthy parents. We genetically test our sires for the most common collie genetic diseases, and then we carefully mate them to females that will compliment those genetics. On top of all that, our males must be friendly and mannerly. So a Cook's Collie male must be handsome, healthy, and happy! (Just the kind of genetics we want to pass on to all of our puppies!)
