Shadewood Farm

At Shadewood Farm, we believe in the extraordinary bond between dogs and their people. It is our passion to provide pet owners with the resources and assistance they need to enjoy an amazing life with their pets.

Occasionally we will have Border Collie puppies for sale to approved homes. We want to give the pups and their future family every opportunity for a successful and loving future. Our puppies are always well-socialized, temperament tested and are up-to-date on their medical care.

We take the breeding and raising of our border collie pups very seriously. And we remain to be an available resource to our pet owners throughout their dog’s life.

Whether you are looking for a faithful companion, a pup to compete with or a service/working dog, our goal is to produce exceptional Border Collies and to prepare both the puppies and the puppy parents for a wonderful future together.

It is owned and operated by Harriet & Kevin Pittman, who raise Border Collies, Anatolian Shepherds and Dorper sheep on their small family farm. They also maintain an AKC regulation agility field that is available for rent. Additionally, they own and operate A Stay in the Country Pet Lodge and Training Center, where they provide boarding, grooming, daycare and training for all breeds of dogs.

Harriet has enjoyed working with dogs all of her life. She has thousands of hours of dog handling experience and is an expert in identifying and managing dog behavior. She has been training, showing, breeding and caring for animals for more than 30 years. And many of her dogs have received American Kennel Club titles in conformation, agility, obedience and herding.
