Ok, I am NO expert when it comes to this stuff lol but while I was looking at breeders, here are a couple that I really liked

Keep in mind, things like personable and being house dogs/loved family companions (with pictures of the dogs simply having fun, being part of the family, personality descriptions etc..) were big factors when I chose breeders. So these are much more small scale than others.

Here were my top 3. Number 1 and 2 were my favorite

Dogs are akc reg and very well rounded (agility, show, rally-o, etc..) health testing is all there, dogs are raw fed and versatile.
They are in FL and I met one of these dogs and simply loved her. I think I may have contacted this breeder a while back and found her to be very friendly and open

this one, which was my performance breeder pick. http://www.hillcrestbordercollies.com/home.cfm
Dogs are AKC reg, there is LOTS of agility and flyball!! Health stuff is there, natural rearing, they have a great youtube page/blog,

This breeder was one of my more working/sport picks.. dogs are much more working line than the above but still dogs do compete in agilty quite a bit. Dogs are raw fed, all health clearances are there.

but this is also listed on their website
"Spay and Neuter: It is our goal to keep our carefully bred working dogs' bloodlines undiluted by "show" and/or "sport" lines, therefore every puppy from Creekside who***8217;s future includes anything but a focus on stock work MUST be spayed or neutered at a suitable age*. 12-14 months"
That leads me to believe that AKC stuff might be an issue, but not sure.
