We (the McGraw's) have owned Border Collies for over 30 years. Our original dogs came from Cattle Ranches in Western Colorado, where we lived at the time.
Today, we are the elite training ground for herding. We offer some of the Top Clinicians and Trainers for all levels of handlers to improve their skills. In addition our facility is set up so that the DOGS learn to handle range stock, in any situation...effectively and efficiently.
Arizona Border Collies/Lamb/Stockdogs came about when we moved from Colorado to Arizona. We created a facility for people who are passionate about handling their dogs in the sport of herding- whether with the intentions of doing ranch/farm chores or moving into a competitive arena. We raised droper cross sheep and border collies. We have hosted United States Border Collie Handlers (USBCHA) trials, American Kennel Club (AKC), American Herding Breed Association (AHBA).
Mom is the heart of Arizona Lamb/Arizona Stockdogs. It was her and dads dream that made this all happen. She runs the farm and manages the day to day operations. Mom competes in USBCHA, AKC, AHBA and ASCA herding events.

In Memory of
Dad was a believer in going after your dreams, jumping in with both feet, as well as bringing people together. He helped bring the new Tonopah location into reality.
I spend most of my time working with Veterinary practices as a Regional Sales Manager for JorVet, but when nights and weekends come, my full attention turns to training up my trial dogs and the youngsters. I enjoy trying to find amazing dogs to add to our lineup. My primary focus is USBCHA, but I do compete in other herding venues.
