Welcome to the home of Southridge Border Collies in the Clutha District of Otago, New Zealand. We are a small, select and ethical kennel striving to produce a nicely conformed, sound, well tempered border collie that will transition through any of the many disciplines on offer these days. Our chosen discipline is working stock and encouraging those natural herding instincts of the border collie. All borders at Southridge are trained for stock work, possum, rabbit or rodent control and we have now succeeded in training for duck retrieval. We welcome visitors to view our dogs working.
Take a look around our site and meet our family. We aim to produce real dogs, for real people!
Southridge Kennels is independently run by your hosts Victoria and Jason Russell-Hodge. We are one of several kennels in the Otago region and all of our dogs are owned fully by Southridge Kennels and mating's using outside stud dogs are paid in full not by favor or deal making. We hold no affiliations to any other kennel in Otago or New Zealand although we do thank those who have allowed us to purchase their progeny.
