Colt was a singleton puppy, meaning he has no litter mates. He was born May of 2015. Colt is our main demo dog who specializes in disc, flashy obedience and tricks.
Colt holds the title of first border collie to be a professional Bat Dog in the country. He retrieved baseball bats after hits for the Madison Mallards for 4 years and now for the Lake Country Dock Hounds.
Colt also has 4 levels of trick titles and dock diving title. In June of 2021, Colt and Kate earned their BH title in protection sport.
Colt is also the dog that Kate was on America's Top Dog with in Season 3
Malick is a Belgian Malinois Border Collie Mix.
He was born on Leap Year 2020. Malick is training for IPO and hopes to earn a 1 next fall.
He has 3 dock diving titles and a personal best of 25'3".
Kovu is a Border Collie born in December of 2017. He is full bother to Colt as they have the same parents.
Kovu specializes in Disc and dock diving. He holds a Master title in distance as well as a Master and Senior title in Air Retrieve in dock diving. His personal best is 25 feet in distance jumps.
He also holds the record for youngest Bat Dog currently. He was 7 months old on his first bat retrieval. Both he and Colt fetch bats off the field for the Lake Country Dock Hounds.
Croix was born on an Amish farm in 2019. He is a male Charcoal Labrador Retriever who adopted us in July of 2021. His color is actually caused by a diluted gene from the true black lab coloring. He came from a breeding situation in which he was pulled before he could be used for breeding, as charcoal coloring is not a wanted trait to breed for. He was in 2 homes before his last family kept him for a year. During that time, they allowed him to develop extreme separation anxiety to the point that he was actually surrendered to us in late May. At that time he was also badly injured on his foot and was unable to walk far or for long. During his 2 month rehab and attempts to find him and home.....he won us over. Today, all his anxiety is gone. He is actually beginning his career as a dock diver and possibly Frisbee.
Mace is our youngest addition as of 10/24/2021. He joined the pack at 8 weeks old. He is a Malinios Border Collie mix and has the same parents as Malick. He will take Colt's place as the main demo dog as well as hopefully enjoy dock diving too. He will also shows potential in protection sport and Frisbee.
Fenix just joined our pack in early August of 2022 when his home could no longer keep him. His Father is a IPO Multi National Champion in protection sport and his Grandfather is a World Champion. He is a pure bred Dutch Shepherd. We plan to explore protection sport and Dock diving. He loves kids and cuddling.
Dolly was born in either 2018 or 2019. We are unsure of what she is but a best guess is yourkie mix. She was surrendered by her first owner to a home for aggression towards men and other dogs. She did ok for a while in her new home until her owner became pregnant, and she started attacking her housemate dogs. We took her in November of 2023 with the idea of rehabbing her for a new home. She has done so well with our pack, we decided to let her stay. She rules the roost against the 6 males in our home.
