"All that we love deeply, becomes a part of us!" ...Helen Keller
Riverrun Collies has moved to Colorado!   We will be enjoying watching our young granddaughter grow up with our collies.   We are located on five beautiful acres nestled in the foothills of Northern Colorado with a wonderful view of the Rocky Mountains.   We're so excited about our new adventure!   We will be travelling back to the Northeast often to visit family and to show our collies. 

Our collies seem to be just as excited as we are with the move to Northern Colorado.   Colorado is much milder with weather and our collies have a large yard to run and play in.   There is so much to do outdoors here in Colorado with our collies.    

Riverrun Collies is a family affair.   We have always had collies in our household but started showing and breeding collies in 1996.   

Riverrun Collies has the on-going goal of producing fun loving collies of distinctive beauty and elegance combined with soundness of body and mind. Each Riverrun breeding is carefully planned, and we are extremely excited as every litter and new generation surpasses the one before...

Here at Riverrun, collies must be more than just a “pretty face”. They have to have intelligence and beauty, not just to excel in the show ring, but also to excel in the performance ring, and to excel in the most important place of all – at home as a loving and out-going family pet and companion. Great health and good temperaments are a high priority for us!   Health testing has become an important tool for collie breeders to make the best of decisions for the future of the breed.   It's exciting to know that we are striving to have the best collies that we can breed.

We are extremely proud of our collies accomplishments.  We have been honored along the way with some prestigious awards and wins in conformation and performance.    Many of our Riverrun Collies have performance titles.   We are honored also to have a number of our Riverrun Collies being certified as therapy dogs and they make visits to nursing homes and hospitals throughout the area.   Loyal, loving, outgoing and always making you laugh - Riverrun Collies are "Something to Live By".

We have partnered with Mary and Rose Robischon of Galatean Collies in New Hampton, New York.   It's more fun to do things together and we can accomplish so much more with our collies.   It is a privilege to work with the Robischons and to have them as good friends and mentors.
