Having trained dogs professionally for many years, I finally decided to set up a site to share some of my wonderful experiences with my Border Collie ‘Max’, a dog who is no longer living but will remain with me always.
Max came to me as a problem dog, close to being put to sleep after spending several years being out of control, aggressive towards other dogs, and in some cases attacking dogs, cyclists, children, cats, ducks…. you get the picture!
Max just needed a life away from the hustle and bustle of city streets, as all Border Collies do in my opinion. I took him when I moved to a small farm, and he spent the rest of his life working for me about an hour a day, and the rest of time just laying around whatever the weather, enjoying the peace and tranquility of a farm life. For those who know me and knew my beloved Max, you can see pictures of him in print – He is featured in an image or two in this excellent Border Collie Book
I will be posting stories, pictures and maybe some videos if I can find some. Life with Max truly was a fantastic experience and I believe the feeling was mutual. I did lots of dog training with him and he learned to respond to my smallest suggestion or command, instantly and obediently every time.
To Max, the best dog in the world (and I have owned a few!)
