Rivermaid Border Collies - where it all began!
Over the past 20 years I have had the pleasure of Sharing my life with our Border Collies. I was a child that had "the knack" with animals and was always caring, training and nurturing animals.
My first ever Border Collie I had was back in the early 80's she was called Scampi. When we rescued her she had been beaten & miss treated badly (because she didn't want to work cattle) she had a broken rib and was hand shy before i got her.
So began the task of training her and getting her to trust me.
Scampie Her training was All based on positive reinforcements with lots of love and compassion. I would of been around 12 yrs old then. I was an adult when she passed away and this was when Rivermaid Border Collies was founded back in 1994. I was lucky to purchase Tia and then a few years later Nicki.
