    A wonderful, clean environment for the dogs and a great place to take the dogs for a walk to get to know them. The people were very understanding and tried hard to find the right dog for us, which we did. They went through his history, personality and needs. We were very aware of what we were adopting and the needs of him due to his past. The check up phone call was great and was amazing to tell them how much he has changed since adopting him. Would recommend this rescue centre for anyone looking for a border collie.

    Professionally run centre with staff who are knowledgeable about the breed. Permitted as much time as we needed to spend with our dog of choice and staff were very objective in their advice - there was no "hard sell" or pressure to take a dog. The level of support and advice we have received since taking her home has been amazing - it is fantastic to just be able to pick up the phone and be reassured that we are doing the right thing or to be told to try something new. Time is the biggest healer for some of these dogs and since getting our girl home at Easter, we have gone through every emotion from thinking we made the wrong decision to sheer joy now that she is becoming more confident.
    If only all potential BC owners had this type of advice and support before they brought a dog into their lives there would be far fewer dogs needing new homes.

    The Staff at Border Collie Trust GB are all clearly only there because they have a strong interest in dogs, particularly the Border Collie. Their overall demeanour and greeting as you walk in immediately puts you at ease, with the feeling that you are in the right place if you are seriously looking to adopt a Border Collie. A friendly, single-minded no-nonsense approach to your needs is apparent from the start, supported by a very strong 'product knowledge' of the breed.
    The catalogue of photos and character profiles of the dogs in their care is kept up-to-date, and questions about the dogs are answered without embellishment or favour. The chance to 'lead-test' a dog is encouraged and a good secure area is available, along with an 'off the lead' play area and plenty of toys!
    We (my Wife and I), are very happy with our choice of dog, and we know he is happy with us, but if ever we had a behavioural problem with him, we would contact Border Collie Trust GB first. Experience is a great ally!
