Tullaview has been a name long associated with our first breed, the Border Collie.  The kennel was established in 1975 by Patrice and her late husband, Gary Knight, then based in Victoria. In later years, and the subsequent marriage of Patrice to Robert Smith, the kennel was to take on the additional name of 'Tullagale' as a combination of Patrice and Robert's respective kennels of Tullaview Border Collies and Loringale Shetland Sheepdogs. Over the years our Border Collies have exceeded our wildest dreams, with a proud record of Best In Show (at All Breeds, Group and Specialty show level), numerous Specialty Challenge, Royal Best of Breed, and a number of In Show awards at major Australian Royal Shows to their credit.

Tullaview has since relocated north, and has since 2005 has been a mother-daughter partnership based in Sydney, Australia.  In this time we have been involved in owning and campaigned Shetland Sheepdogs and Miniature Wire-Haired Dachshunds in partnership, whilst also becoming heavily involved in owning and campaigning some magnificent Pulis from the Rustufarion kennel. Since 2006 we have also returned to our beloved Border Collies, and have begun breeding, exhibiting and loving our new generations here at Tullaview.
