Our Border Collies work sheep on our farm, and daily we get to see how incredible these dogs are. Maintaining the working ability and usefulness of these dogs is one of our prime motivations, as well as making our lives much easier in managing our sheep flock. Working Border Collies help to manage livestock in places that would otherwise be inaccessible.
Helping others train these amazing dogs, not just for work but to be great companions, is also part of our day-to-day activities.
A Border Collie is not for everyone. They are active dogs, bred to do a job and are incredible companions when trained.
However, their intelligence, although famous, can be a problem. The selection of the herding trait can create some unusual or problematic quirks that must be addressed well before the obvious signs manifest themselves. These problems are much harder to change once the dog has rehearsed it over and over, so we encourage getting help as soon as you sense a problem.
So whether you have a puppy or dog who needs some manners, or you’d like to find out if your dog has that special instinct, we can help.
