Mockingbird Border Collies

Showcasing Versatility

About Us


Mockingbird Kennels is a small kennel located in Northwest Louisiana. It is owned and operated by Liz Irvin.

Our kennel is focused on producing versatile dogs that can be competitive in any venue. We are pleased to have several versatility awards from the Border Collie Society of America on our dogs, proving out dedication to producing the do-it-all dog. Our dogs are exclusively owner handled in every venue except conformation, making us well educated in the specific needs of performance dogs. 

We compete in rally, obedience, herding, agility, conformation, dock diving, barn hunt, scentwork, and more!

I am a member of the following:


Alongside my club memberships, I have held numerous officer positions, am a frequent herding trial secretary, a CGC evaluator, ATT, FDC, and Fetch judge, and Conformation B Match chair.
