The Ultimate Border Collie by Alison Hornsby

The Border Collie's strong instincts, quick wits and intelligence have proved both a delight and a challenge to owners. The book explains how to address this intelligence, through training, work and socialization.

About Alison Hornsby

The Editor: Alison Hornsby's interest in the Border Collie began in 1973 when she was working as a trainer for the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association. This involvement deepened when she became puppywalking and broodstock supervisor at the Association's breeding centre, specialising in the training of puppies and the supervision of the GDBA breeding scheme. Ten years ago she founded the Bekkis kennel, in partnership with Jenny Jefferson, and their Border Collies have achieved considerable success in the show ring and as working dogs. To date, they have bred two Border Collie Show Champions, and have made up a third. They have also bred ten working guide dogs, and three dogs for the disabled. See Chapter 2: The Border Collie Puppy and Chapter 9: The Versatile Border Collie.
