March 15, 2020
Dear instructors, students, boarders, and renters,
As most of you know, on March 12th, Governor Larry Hogan and announced that schools would be closing and it was recommended that we socially isolate to prevent the spread of COVID-19. After much discussion and with an abundance of caution, we have chosen to close the training center until at least Sunday, March 29, 2020. As that date approaches, we will reevaluate as needed. This means that there will be no private rentals, classes, or workshops occurring in either building. We hope that you take this time to work with and enrich your dogs in other ways. At this time, the boarding kennel remains open though we understand that many trips are being cancelled. If you are planning to board, we ask that you remain in your vehicle and call us. At that point a Branchwater employee will come retrieve your dog and belongings.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this time,
Doreen and Hank Suchting
Branchwater Training Center, Kennels, and Border Collies is located in Reisterstown Maryland, convenient to Cockeysville, Hunt Valley, and Timonium.
Branchwater has been producing high-quality border collie pups since 1980. As part of the breeding program, we require that dogs are at least two years of age and have received a passing OFA Certification (Excellent, Good, or Fair). Pups are healthy and socialized before leaving Branchwater at eight weeks old. When puppies are available, they will be posted in our Puppies section.
Training is an essential aspect to a dog’s (and a handler’s) life. Our training center offers a variety of classes for all breeds and levels including obedience and obedience. We host clinics as well as USDAA dog agility trials several times throughout the year. See our Training section for currently offered classes.
The licensed kennels are air conditioned and heated, maximizing comfort for your dog during his or her stay. We do our best to ensure that dogs staying with us are happy and well cared for during their visit. See our Boarding Kennels section for more information.
Knowing that dogs occasionally get injured, Branchwater hosts a licensed dog chiropractor, Dr. Ziemski, twice a month. See our Chiropractor Services section.
