ABOUT CONTACT POINT BORDER COLLIES
Welcome to Contact Point Border Collies, where excellence in breeding and a passion for canine sports come together. Our journey began in June 1999 with the arrival of our very first litter of Contact Point Border Collies, and it is a breeding program that fills us with immense pride.
We are honored to have been bestowed with the esteemed title of AKC Breeder of the Year for Agility in 2014. This prestigious award recognized the top breeder in agility across all breeds for that particular year. It is a singular honor, bestowed only once per breeder, and we were thrilled to have our dedication and commitment acknowledged in such a remarkable manner.
As we continued our breeding journey, after more than 23 years of breeding Border Collies, we achieved the remarkable distinction of AKC Breeder of Merit Platinum. This milestone is a testament to our commitment to the breed. To earn the Platinum level recognition, we have bred a minimum of 100 dogs who have obtained AKC titles, with at least 60 of them achieving a Championship. We take immense pride in being the first and only Border Collie breeder to reach this remarkable level of distinction.
Our Contact Point Border Collies have found loving homes all across the globe. From the United States, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, England, Germany, Spain, Russia, to Japan our pups are living their best lives with their new owners. They excel in various dog sport venues, including Agility, Herding, Disc Dogs, Flyball, Dock Diving, Obedience, Rally, Tricks and even as performers in the Canine Stars Stunt Dog Shows.
While our Contact Point Border Collies shine in the spotlight of sporting arenas, they are also beloved family members who relish a wide range of activities with their owners. They are enthusiastic participants in hiking, camping and various outdoor adventures, bringing joy and companionship wherever they go. Moreover, they have touched the lives of their owners as cherished Therapy Dogs and Service Dogs, providing comfort, support and assistance when it is needed most.

Welcome to the world of Karen Moureaux, where a profound love for Border Collies and a passion for dog sports collide. It all began in 1989 when Karen purchased her first Border Collie, "Dallas," during a memorable trip to Texas with her husband and two-year-old daughter, Kate. Little did Karen know that this decision would not only transform her own life but also have a profound impact on Kate's journey.
As a newcomer to the world of Border Collies, Karen quickly discovered that her new pup needed a job. Back in 1989, agility was still in its infancy, but Karen was fortunate to connect with like-minded individuals who shared her enthusiasm for this emerging sport.
Over the past three decades, Karen and has competed in a diverse range of dog sports with her Border Collies, including Dog Agility, Herding, Flyball and Obedience. Her first Border Collie, Dallas, joined her on four USA Agility World Teams, representing their country in Spain, Austria, Belgium and as members of the pioneering AKC Agility team that competed in the FCI World Agility Championships in Switzerland. Their accomplishments include national championships at both the USDAA and AKC National Agility Championships, along with impressive performances in other years.
Karen's journey with Border Collies has been nothing short of exceptional. Throughout the past 30+ years, she has been blessed with a succession of remarkable Border Collies, boasting multiple agility champions in both AKC and USAA venues. Her dogs have also earned titles in herding, obedience and flyball, showcasing the versatility and intelligence of this incredible breed.
In 1994, Karen's passion for agility led her to establish Contact Point Agility, the very first AKC Agility Club in Southern California. This groundbreaking initiative paved the way for the growth and development of AKC Agility in the region. Today, Contact Point Agility continues to organize AKC Agility Trials twice a year, providing a platform for fellow enthusiasts to showcase their skills and deepen their bond with their four-legged partners.
