|Who are we
On this page, I will introduce us and our
We are Jos and Tanja, and we are living in Kerkrade in the south of the
Netherlands. We have 5 Bordercollies, Magic, Cyanda, Fantom, Mystic and
biggest hobby is Agility. We travel to go to national and international competitions. We also sometimes start in Belgium and Germany.
We have our own little agility school in Valkenburg.
I already wanted a dog when I was 3
years old. When I was 7, I had 3 dogs in our street I went walking with.
And when I was 16, at least I became my first own dog, Ricky. After 5
years came Devil, and with him I started with agility. On the training I
saw a Bordercollie for the first time. And I fell completely in love, so
much will to please and enthousiasm! I knew then that this was the kind
of dog I wanted! And so my 2 greatest loves started: Bordercollies and
At this moment we have 5 Bordercollies:
Magic was born on 22
She is a fanatic little
girl with a great will to please. Agility she loved most of all. We
have run in competitions together from 2000 - 2007. We had a wonderfull
time together! Magic is retired now from agility, but in her head she
is still full of energy. She likes to make long walks, swimming and
running next to the bike.
Cyanda was born on 22 April 2004 (Magic's 5th
birthday!). Cyanda is a lovely dog who likes to hug and cuttle. She loves
it to lie with you on the couch and watch tv together. With strangers
she holds back a little but once she knows you she is the sweetest and
friendliest dog there is. She knows how to steal everybodies heart!
In 2009 Cyanda and I were selected for the IMCA in Gyula, Hungary.
Together with the Dutch Team we reached the podium 3 times, and got a
3rd place overall, a great experience!
is a fast little girl but sometimes followes her own head!
Fantom is born on 14 Oktober 2006. He is
a lovely dog, always friendly and trying to please you. He is a quick learner and not
afraid of anything. Fantom is
a great dog to work with, he is fast but also in control.
Fantom has run on several international competitions. In 2010 he reached
the final for the European Open and became 10th in the final. With the
Dutch Team he ended on the 4th place. In that year he also reached the
final in the Border Collie Classic and became 9th in the final.
On the IMCA he reached the 2nd place overall individuall and with the
Dutch team they were first!
In 2014 he made my dream come true and we became IMCA World
Champion Large! With the Dutch team we were this year 2nd.

little girl, she can be very sweet but also shows her own will!

Tess was born in Scotland on 18 March
1999 and she came to the Netherlands with 11 weeks. Tess was 2 when we
started with agility and she runs in the C class since 2004. In 2004
we were also selected for the IMCA, the Agility World Championship for

too early. We will never forget her!
