Running with Dogs
Those who have already shared their lives with Border Collie companions will know..........
There is no other breed like them.
They like to work with their handler.
To experience the depth of intimacy, shared joy and fulfillment while running with your best mate is something we could all have if we put in the effort.
In theory, it does not have to be a Border Collie - but let's aim high!
Running with Collies!
Collies will tell you if they have been frustrated in their previous home if only kept for petting when they should have been recognised as dogs with a mission.
Those dogs are likely to have had frustrated previous owners, wondering why they could never be 'good dogs' and just settle down.
Maybe, after some running training, they could have been.
Others, with more prey drive, maybe overly keen to chase sheep and be safer training on the line to be a happy distance runner too.
Others may have little drive to work and have already been deemed as non-workers by their previous farm homes before coming into BCR looking for other duties.
This charity carefully assesses all the dogs we take in.
Our fist assessment is the stock test. If they want to herd, that's the sort of home we will place them in.
But there are many that don't, but they still want in on the action.
That's why we have put this website together. -
To encourage people to raise funds for us by taking part in running events, walks and other sponsored activities
To encourage people to keep fit and keep their dogs fit so all can lead longer, happier lives together.
