Happenstance Border Collies is founded by Amanda Gross who has a passion for all things dog.
We are an Accountable Preservation Breeder of the Purebred Border Collie. Type, health, temperament are at the utmost importance for us.
Amanda is a professional dog trainer with experience in veterinary. She teaches, trains and trials for various events including Agility, Obedience, Conformation, Herding, Rally, and more. Agility is where all the fun began and the love for all things dog grew.
Currently a practice manager at a Colorado Springs veterinary clinic, she was able to move to the Eastern Plains of Colorado on 40 acres where the dogs are able to run, play, and grow.
Our dogs are active and are all treated as well respected members of the canine family here. We are located East of Colorado Springs in a beautiful area with beautiful scenery and lots of space for the dogs. From a young age our dogs are well socialized, trained, and given the opportunity to show us their true personalities. We moved to Colorado in July of 2016 from Sacramento, CA, the dogs and I absolutely love it here!
