Gotta love them corgis!
I don't live in the area, but I say congrats on the decision, I am sure it was a well informed one. Any breeder has the potential to be a good breeder, but you must look for and ask certain questions. I don't know about with collies, but certain things about us Pembrokes:
-Ask if our parents eyes and hips have been properly checked and certified. We don't have many genetic diseases, but hip displysia is among many.
-Obviously check the pedigree of the pup if you want a champion--Who has champion in thier lines! And hence bred for greatness.
-A good breeder will always ask about you, and be probing. Do you have a yard? Are you financially ina position to care for this pup for the rest of its life? How many people live in your house? Do they all WANT a puppy? Ect.
Here is a website with lots of other good questions to put your potential breeder up to!
