About Us

Mountain Rose Bordoodles Grand Children

Our family lives in the small friendly town of Portage, Utah. Portage was established in 1867, in part, by our well respected relatives several generations back. This beautiful area of Utah consists of ranchers, farmers and some good ol' regular folk. Portage is near the Utah / Idaho state line. We are also lucky enough to live near our adult children and their growing families... 20grandchildren and counting. We are further blessed to have their full-time involvement in our lives and the lives of our amazing dogs. 

We are very proud to have previously bred and professionally trained purebred Border Collies hailing from elite bloodlines out of Scotland, just a few generations back.

Now, after having the wonderful opportunity of being introduced to the Bordoodle breed by our niece and nephew, we absolutely fell in love with the amazing Bordoodle! We are now completely engaged in raising and training the highest quality and arguably the most intelligent dogs in the world. 

We take great pride in owning select dogs possessing notable bloodlines with a strong history of good health and long life.  Our dogs are smart, lovable and rare. 

Because our dogs are an integral part of our family, they receive ample love and plenty of attention.  They accompany us on our various activities around our properties throughout the day. They just love our other animals... and even love our grand-kids who visit daily! Our dogs love to go with us on rides in the truck and hiking in the mountains. Every day in the late afternoon, weather permitting, we taker our dogs off-leash into the mountains directly behind our home. We love it and so do they!  Our dogs are a true joy and a loving part of our family!
