About My Dogs

I have 2 Border Collies, both of which were rescued from Irish pounds.

I have changed their lives and they have changed mine.

I have been a dog lover all my life growing up with dogs and I got my first Border Collie, "Cassie" 5 years ago, "Breagh" came along 9 months ago. All my spare time is spent with them and this is where my passion for being around dogs has come from.

As they are rescue dogs, that didn't trust humans, they required a lot of patience and understanding, but above all they needed lots of love and happiness. My dogs have been trained by using positive reward. No harsh methods are used.

Cassie has gone from being a shy, frightened stray with a fear of humans to a Grade 7 Agility Dog competing all over the UK. As of the 1st February 2014 it has just been announced she has finished 3rd place in Rescue Agility Scotland League 2013. She has also gained her Bronze and Silver Good Citizen Awards. She was rescued through Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue and was previously named Princess. She lives up to the name perfectly! Breagh spent the first 11 months of her life in a barn in Ireland and survived on very little. She had no contact with humans or the outside world. Rescued through Morgans Dog Rescue, Alston, Cumbria she has grown into a stunning lady with a very cheeky side to her. Breagh loves to play with other dogs. She is now a Grade 3 agility dog. The pictures below show Breagh as she was then and now. They are both Kennel Club Registered and fully vaccinated.
