Have you ‘herd’ the news?
2J 2K Border Collies Breeding healthy, confident Border Collie puppies with exceptional temperaments. Our mission is to raise and match the right puppy for your family. In doing this, we take into account the puppy’s attributes in addition to what you are looking for in your next best friend. Additionally, we provide puppy evaluations and scorecards to help guide you during puppy selection.
We breed and raise our Border Collie puppies for sale for approved, responsible, and loving homes. Understandably, socialization is an essential step in raising a puppy. Therefore, all puppies start enrichment activities in our puppy nursery with our BAB Advanced Puppy Curriculum. In addition, we utilize ENS (Early Neurological Stimulation), ESI (Early Scent Introduction), Puppy Culture, and Avidog.
All in all Border Collies are our passion. Above all, their drive, loyalty, loving nature, intelligence, and graceful style will add fun and happiness to your home!
DNA genetically health tested for the entire Border Collie Canine Health Check, Paw Print Genetics, Optimal Selection, and/or Embark panel. We certify hips, elbows, heart, and patellas with OFA, PennHip, and most dogs have both certifications.

“Become A Part Of Our Family When You Make A 2J 2K Border Collie A Part Of Yours!”
“I never had a dog growing up, and the way this girl has impacted my life can bring me to tears. She’s the smartest animal I’ve ever met and can learn a new trick in a matter of two minutes. She is a tennis enthusiast and a lover of the swimming pool; she loves playing with kids and spends an hour or two each week with her dad, giving their time and compassion to kids with autism. To have met Sheba is to absolutely adore her. She has it all! – Brienna H. | Florida
“The thing that impresses me the most about your dogs is that they are so personable and great family dogs as well as working dogs.” Patricia C. | California | Multiple 2J 2K Border Collie Owner | Qualifier USDAA Nationals

We could not be more blessed with the fact that we have her; thank you guys very much!! We have already taught her to sit and give paw and go potty in one night!!
“We want to give you guys an update on Aggie- and she is in puppy school!! She is at the top of the class and knows how to sit and stay, lay down, give paw, and go potty on command!!” Ken & Tracy K. | Missouri
“Jax says thank you! He’s doing great, the best dog we’ve ever owned! He has really started to make himself useful, moving cows and watching gates around the farm, and he’s always happy and willing! Loves the kids and hangs out with them or me constantly. Thanks again for such a wonderful boy! Jamie C. | Wisconsin
