About Us

The Border Collies of Pawcific - North are raised, trained, shown and loved by Kathy and Jenny Fish.  We are located on a 14-acre farm in the state of Washington, USA where the dogs have plenty of room to stretch their legs.  Showing and raising dogs is a family affair, with Kathy and her three daughters Emily, Jenny and Brittany actively involved.  Although Jenny was the one who originally took claim to the Border Collies, both Kathy and Emily now have Border Collies of their own.  Emily has now developed her own breeding program and her dogs can be seen at Pawcific Border Collies South.

Jenny's experience with dogs began when she turned nine and joined 4-H. When she turned ten she also showed in A.K.C. Junior Handling and Obedience. Jenny trained and showed her very special Shetland Sheepdog named Nicky. Nicky taught Jenny a lot about training and showing dogs and they became very successful. In 2003, Jenny decided that she would like to do some therapy dog work with Nicky, as he is such a patient and loving dog. Jenny certified Nicky as a DELTA Society Pet Partner and they began visiting a local assisted living center.

In 1997 and 1998, the Fish family had the opportunity to live in Australia. While living there Jenny continued to show dogs. She was able to gain a lot of experience both in the Junior Handling and breed ring. While living in Australia we started to admire and appreciate the Border Collies. Jenny decided that she wanted a bigger dog to show in juniors and we decided that a Border Collie would be the perfect match. We were very fortunate to find Blaze, bred by Wal & Margaret Morgan of Kellagem Border Collies. Our second Border Collie, Morgan, came to us in 2001. Morgan is out of Blaze’s first litter, bred by Bonnie Harris of Wildair Border Collies.

In May 2007 Jenny graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and German. As well as training and showing her own dogs, Jenny has professionally handled numerous Border Collies.  Jenny also enjoys training and competing in herding, agility, obedience and rally.
Kathy has always enjoyed the Border Collies and in the summer of 2006 claimed one of our puppies as her own.  Tracking is Kathy's favorite dog sport and she enjoys tracking with her Border Collies.  Kathy is also the health and nutrition expert and enjoys raising our dogs holistically.

Our goal is to raise and own Border Collies that have it all.  We strive to produce dogs with natural herding ability, correct conformation and breed type, and sound, biddable temperaments.  All of our dogs have their eyes and hips tested as well as being DNA tested for CEA, CL and TNS before breeding.  We are extremely proud of our dog’s accomplishments and look forward to what the future holds.
