My Story

Hi, My name is Sylwia and I am behind Fasstari Border Collies.

My story starts many many years ago when I was born. Growing up my family always had German Shepherds (both pedigree and rescues). Our home was never without a dog. My grandmother who was veterinarian teach me how to take care of animals. I spend hours in her veterinary clinic helping with four-legged patients. I still don't know why I didn't attend to Veterinary School... but let's go back to border collies!
In 2012 my first border collie came into to my life and turned it upside
down! I fell in love. Today I cannot imagine my life without them. 


I started showing my dogs in 2012, first in Poland then across Europe (Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Romania, Montenegro, and Bosnia-Herzegovina). In 2013 I became a member of the British Shepherd Dog Section in branch in Warsaw (PL) and ​in 2017 was elected a second chair.
