Briefly in English

I breed Border Collies under the kennel name
Minoon Sitte which means 'By the way, I am (the
dog's name)' written in one of the Finnish dialects.


We have no puppy plans.

At the moment, I live with two Border Collies, Hoina and Chhaina, and with my partner in Turku, Finland. I am a 26-year-old student of Comparative Religion, Psychology and Multiculturalism, and as for dog sports, I compete mostly in agility but occasionally also in obedience.

In my breeding, the number one criteria is openness when it comes to health and health issues. I believe that this is the only way to fight against hereditary diseases, even if sometimes the more you know, the more you suffer. Behind every dog there are risks, and my aim is to find them out, try to balance with them when choosing males, and, if something bad comes up anyway, tell about it.
