Photos and Brags



Kilnhursts are bred with health, temperament, versatility and conformation as benchmarks.
Both Collies and mini Americans are by definition working breeds - from the Herding and Pastoral groups.
They need a job to do; whether that is training for a particular canine sport, an assistance or therapy dog, or involved in family life as an active companion. Pick a hobby, and these dogs will be right there with you!

Whatever they get up to, we are enormously proud of our fur-kids and we love to receive photos and updates.
Here are just a few memorable moments from the 'Clan'.
