My name is Gavin Deadman and I operate a small pedigree Border Collie kennel located in Pukekohe New Zealand, a rural area between Auckland and Hamilton.
My first Border Collie came from Colleen Pitt of Rimrock Kennels for my 10th birthday, 'Beau' was my friend and companion for 15 years, and taught me alot about the breed and instigated a lifetime passion for Border Collies. I still have Rimrock lines through several of my best dogs.
The Borders have the run of a 35acre farm where they have plenty of room to stretch and play. I keep sheep and some cattle so am able to develop and train their herding instincts. I also train most of my Borders for competition obedience which the dogs and I enjoy together.
My dogs are selected foremost for temperament and trainability, type and soundness. All breeding stock are tested for CL, CEA and TNS to ensure no Weyahead puppy will ever be 'affected' by any of these conditions.
At Weyahead we often produce several different coloured puppies however will never produce colour at the expense of type or temperament.
