Welcome to the World of Julie Hill Home of Nethhill Border Collies
Hello and Welcome
This site has been lovingly developed with the aim of providing a resource for anybody who is interested in sheepdogs, sheepdog training and how this aspect of country life works. Ultimately, I want to pass on my passion and understanding of the Border Collie breed.
I would love to hear from you if there is something I haven't covered or that you would like more information on. You can email me here or by visiting my contact me page here.
I have worked with working Border Collies since 1982. Over the years I have bred and trained a number of highly successful sheepdogs both for farming and competition.
My passion and enthusiasm for the breed has seen me achieve success representing Scotland at both the International and World Sheepdog Trials. I made history in 1996 when I became the first and currently only woman to win the Supreme International Championship. I have also won both the supreme and the International Brace Championships.
Other achievements include winning the Scottish National Championship, the Scottish National Brace Championship, the Scottish National Driving Championship and the Champion of Champions Competition. Julie's Sheepdog scrapbook.
I provide training and demonstrations for individuals and groups both at home, nationally and Internationally.
Neth Hill Sheepdog Holidays
Please visit my Smiddyhill Lodge page. The luxury lodge forms a core element of my business and is available for let throughout the year. The lodge has its own website you can visit here.
Smiddyhill Lodge was designed and built by Island Leisure. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is first class. The quality and sturdiness of the build has the wow factor. I would 100% recommend Island leisure to anyone, not only for the product but for the warm welcome and tremendous support throughout the whole process from designing, building and aftercare. We have had 100% positive feedback from guests staying at the Lodge.
Julie is proudly sponsored by Sneyd's Wonderfeedsworking dog food unrivalled in quality and value. I have been using Wonderdog for a few years now. Not only do my dog's love it but it keeps them in tremendous condition. It has improved stamina for long days working on the rough terrain here at Carcant. www.wonderdog.co.uk
I have recently introduced 'Winston & Porter's Nourish + C Max Strength Joint Supplement' to some of my ageing working dogs. Just after two weeks I noticed improvement to flexibility and movement in my dogs.
The ground they work is steep and rugged, an unsympathetic environment that causes stress and strains to the dogs physique. I will definitely continue to use this quality product and recommend it to others. Nethhillbordercollies www.winstonandporter.com.
