Tairis Collies are located in  North Texas, on the western edge of the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex.  We are not a ‘kennel’, but have a few collies that live with us as members of our family because we love the breed.  Dogs, in general, are great companions, but there is nothing like a collie.  We selected the name TAIRIS for our collies because it is an old Irish word meaning loving and loyal.  That is certainly descriptive of collies. I am a 3rd generation collie lover, as my mother and grandmother loved the breed too. I started attending dog shows as a teenager and have become an admirer of many breeds– but no breed touches my heart like a collie. Currently, we show in conformation as time and finances permit. We plan to try some herding and obedience activities in the future. I am a member of the Collie Club of America and the Fort Worth Collie Club. I hope to see this wonderful breed continue to thrive and bring joy to future generations.
All collies are beautiful in their own way, but after decades of observing show bred collies, studying the collie standard, and pedigrees of our favorites,  we have formed a picture in our mind of what we consider ideal collie type. We plan to have an occasional litter with that picture in mind- with the goal of producing beautiful, typey collies for show &  companionship.  We consider good health, and sound temperament to be  essential goals as well. A quality collie is a joy to our eyes and our hearts, and it is a pleasure to share that joy with other responsible collie lovers. Our pet collies are placed with AKC limited registration and a spay/neuter contract, and are sold face to face only.
