Books on The Bloodlines of the Border Collie - by Roy Goutté

The Principal Sheepdog Lines

For some years now Roy Goutté has written a series of articles for Working Sheepdog News on the Bloodlines of the Border Collie in Sheepdog Trialling. They have been widely acclaimed by the working Border Collie fraternity, so it was a natural progression therefore to publish THE PRINCIPAL SHEEPDOG LINES, a collection of pedigrees and related articles of dogs, who have until recently, competed at the very highest level in sheepdog trials and are now central to the modern day Breeding Programme. 119 pages.

Featuring the bloodlines of 17 recent top trialling dogs together with their full pedigree charts and photographs. National Team Members also included and all main merit awards shown.
