We are Alan and Marie Koebke, owners and trainers of Alamar Border Collies. Our emphasis has been and will continue to be teaching good stock work and developing the natural working ability to its utmost in herding dogs. We will work with any herding breed in our herding program and any breed in our obedience training program. We strive to bring the most out of each dog and handler we work with. We also emphasize good canine manners and appropriate behavior while in public or on the farm and a basic understanding of how dogs work with people and with livestock We have an extensive board and train program for basic obedience as well as private lessons. Our goal is to help you get the most out of your companion or hired hand.
Our Border Collies are worked almost daily and their working ability is assessed on a regular basis. Alamar is dedicated to preserving the working ability of the American Working Border Collie. We do not breed or allow our dogs to be bred unless they are showing exceptional ability and talent in herding.
Here at Alamar we feel very strongly about preserving the talent and ability of the working Border Collie. Our philosophy strongly believes that you do not breed Border Collies for the hobby activities they also excel in, but for their working ability only.
All of our dogs go to new homes on a spay/neuter contract. Alamar carefully screens buyers as to their needs and experience and their willingness to be a responsible owner. This includes adhering to a vaccination schedule and training to insure the dog is a well mannered companion and citizen.
We also offer discounted training for our owners who are in close proximity.
We love for our new friends and owners to do anything with our dogs that they want, but our philosophy for breeding Border Collies is they should be bred for working ability only, if they pass all requisite health screenings and are of sound temperament.
Although we do not breed often, we carefully match prospective males and females for their ability to improve the working ability of our Border Collies.
