" Dear Barbara I very recently took on my fourth Border Collie. She is from a sheep farm; four years old and wouldn't herd, hence the sale. Meg has not known domesticity and so absolutely everything is new to her. I need help to help Meg. I found your book 'Training Border Collies' and write to say how lovely it is. It's as if you're in the garden with us, quietly telling us how it's done! Thank you so so much for the format- so many super pics and the love that lies behind your kind words. When I reached page 52 I decided to go back, read again and absorb all I read and will refer to this nook for many months to come. Thank you for your wonderful insight which will help me help Meg to take on life off the farm. Wendy Bush (74) "
