FOSTBC Border Collies in Sanctuary
We are grateful to everyone who sponsors the collies in our Sanctuary. The reasons why they can't be rehomed are mainly due to ill health or behavoural issues, most of them are on special diets and there are the ongoing food and vet bills each month. We are grateful to everyone who supports these dogs by sponsoring them and this video hopefully shows you the kind of life our rescue and Sanctuary dogs lead and although they are not all curled up by someones fireside they do get lots of attention and fresh air. We hope you enjoy watching them.
Rocky is in our Sanctuary. He has a lot of issues which is why he can't be homed. He is safe in our Sanctuary and loves everyone who works with him but he has become the our KC dog - the Kennel Clown! He loves his fun, loves hide and seek and loves to play 'dodge' in the garden with Josh.
When Rob came to us he was so scared that we couldn't touch him or even get near him. It has taken a lot of time and patience but slowly and without any pressure he has learnt to trust us. We are now working on encouraging him to walk out with different trainers and to see more of the world outside our gate. Today this was a huge adventure for Rob and he was so excited he.... well watch the video and you will see!!

Training Video Gallery
We always adapt our training techniques to each dog’s character and temperament. We hope that by updating our videos throughout the year showing different issues or problems it will be interesting and will also show you how we work on our dogs prior to rehoming.
We will also include regular videos with basic good manners training such as lead walking and recall.
Dogs rarely see the same things we see and sometimes its really good to get down to their eye level and look at everything from their point of view.
lead walking, recall and other dogs
All dogs are different and in the rescue we have lots of dogs with similar problems but needing different ways of handling but the principal always remains the same. Learning to lead walk & getting a good recall with these a dog can then be taught how to react with other dogs.
Lead training for different temperaments
Lead training a strong dog has the same Thinking Like Canines principle as for a nervous dog but is far more subtle, and instead of refusing a dog to take the lead it encourages a dog to feel secure. When a dog is well mannered on a lead the walks become faster and more relaxed.
