Lightbulb Thoughts on Border Collie breeders in/near Ontario?

I'd like people's opinions on Border Collie breeders in Ontario (or outside Ontario, if they're something really special).

These are the breeders who were linked to me by my agility instructor:

http://www.eweniquebordercollies.com/home.cfm (He has a dog from this breeder, and likes her a lot.)

http://www.powertripp.org/home.cfm (I know a lot of very nice dogs from this kennel, but they may be a little too prolific.)

http://www.tntbordercollies.com/ (These people seem to be breeding really high end sporter collies which may be a bit beyond my ability for the time being.)

I'm looking for a dog who, first and foremost, has a stable temperament. Ideally there would be minimal dog reactivity and no fear issues. The dog would have to have a good off switch, assuming it gets sufficient exercise each day. I'm willing to have a bit more low-key, less drivey BC if it means gaining this stability. The dog would have to be able to operate well in the presence of other dogs.

I would want to use the dog primarily for agility, competitive obedience and flyball. I don't need to be the best of the best of the best, but I do want to be competitive at the higher levels of each sport. I want a velcro do. I think I'd want a male, and I'd prefer him to be relatively small (not over 40 lbs, I guess?).

This potential future puppy will be a good few years off, but I'm kind of excited about the whole research process.

What are people's thoughts on the above breeders? Can you share any other names/websites I should scope out? Are there any details I've forgotten to include?

Thanks!
