CH Moore's Tiernan Dash HT NDD
Breannan introduced us to the world of Collies, and we thank his wonderful temperament, intelligence, and happy outlook on life for helping us to fall in love with this wonderful breed and becoming our foundation dog.
Breannan became a champion in early 2009. In addition to earning an AKC Herding Titled (HT), Breannan is one of the few collies to have earned a draft title from the BMDCA.

CH Contempo's Alainn Aithne
After becoming Collie lovers through Breannan, we decided we would like to try to create more dogs like him and delve into the world of breeding. We searched for a look we liked, and compatible type, and determined that the look of CH Dea Haven’s Memory Maker was what we were after. So, we searched for a daughter of his to breed to Breannan. We found Kate and fell in love with our first Collie girl. She was very different from Brean, more adventurous, more like the guard of the family.
We bred her to Breannan, and from that litter, kept Kenzie and Peyton. They were all we were looking for in the litter, healthy, beautiful, sweet, sound, smart, and easy to train. These two dogs started our journey into performance.
We later in her life discovered her favorite thing to do is lure coursing, and she qualified in her first try at the Coursing Ability Test.

MACH2 PACH Moore's Alainn Aithne Aoife RAE HSAds MXG MJG MXP3 MXPB MJP5 MJPS PAX MXF MFP T2B T2BP SCN CGCA TKI CCA-GV
2018 CCA National Specialty - 7th Place, Most Versatile (12 years old)
2013 CCA National Specialty - 9th Place, Most Versatile
Kenzie is the first puppy that was born from our first litter. She taught herself to become a Diabetic Alert Dog (DAD) and she constantly monitors Alicia, who has type 1 diabetes. She earned the Collie Club of America’s (CCAs) Shining Star Award for “extraordinary service” for not only becoming a diabetic alert dog but for saving Alicia’s life on multiple occasions.
Kenzie was the first Moore Collie to get an agility title, the first to become an agility champion, the first to get a herding title, and the first to earn an RAE. She is a quick learner, eager to please, extremely smart, and is healthy and sound enough to withstand the rigors of competition.
We bred Kenzie hoping to capture all her good qualities with a slightly more “in style” eye. We achieved that with her daughter Caoilainn, whom we kept.

GCH CH PACH2 Moore's Lord Peyton RAE HSAds AX AXJ MXP9 MXPG MJP10 MJPC PAX2 NF MFP T2BP CGC TKN CCA-GV
2013 CCA National Specialty - 3rd Place, Most Versatile
The name "Peyton" is Scottish in origin and means "royal," and so he is Moore's Royal Lord.
Peyton is from our first litter. He is a beautiful male with a huge properly harsh coat, well fitted. He is sound, healthy, playful, and intelligent. He learned to perform DAD duties from his sister, Kenzie and also plays a part in warning Alicia when Kenzie isn’t around.
Peyton started his agility career at full speed. He received his agility Championship in 2015, making him our first dual Champion.
He has his CCA Versatility Excellent Award and is the only Collie to earn the Grand Versatility Excellent Award in 2015.

2013 CCA National Specialty - 5th Place, Most Versatile
The name "Caolainn" means "slender, white, fair, and pure." "Aileen Aednat" means "noble little fire."
Kenzie was bred to CH Highcroft Bourne Supremacy in 2013 and produced Caoilainn. Caoilainn has her dam’s great angulation, intelligence, health, movement, and her sire’s melting expression.
Her favorite place to shine is the breed ring where she can be the center of attention and where she finished her championship easily. She also loves to work ducks and her natural herding style is to drive. Caoilainn also loves training in tracking - a sport where the dog is in the lead!
Caoilainn has a unique trick that is one of our favorite things any of our dogs do. We call it “sproing” ing. When she is happy to see us, she leaps up off the ground with all four feet as though she is on a pogo stick. She does it a few times and sometimes actually is able to kiss our faces while in the air!

The name "Connlaodh" means "pure fire," and "Idris Laise" is Welsh and means "ardent, enthusiastic, impulsive lord of the flame" and is pronounced, "EE-dreese lee-AYS."
Conn is our first Rally Champion and most accomplished herding dog, fulfilling a long tradition of Collie herding dogs.
He is enthusiastic in all that he tries, from the breed ring to scent work to agility to herding. Conn finished his Championship on April 15th, at two years five months, and one week! He and Cay each finished their Grand Championship on the same day in April 2019.
Special Moore's Elcie Orlaithe RA HT NFP SCA SBN
"Feana" (FEE-nuh) means shining; blond; small fawn; fair. Her registered name, Elcie Orlaithe, means unique golden princess.
We added Feana to our flock knowing she would be perfect for our program. She is our "gazelle" - light on her feet, agile, and energetic even in our living room!
Her athleticism coupled with her intelligence makes her a perfect performance partner, yet while at home she is all snuggles.
At such a young age, she has already accomplished so much and it's exciting to see what's next for her!
