Hello and Welcome - The aim of my website is to provide you with information that you may find interesting and insightful. Ultimately, I want to help pass on the passion and understanding I have accumulated over many years 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.
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 field trials.
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.
I provide training and demonstrations for individuals and groups both at home, nationally and as Covid19 restrictions relax Internationally.
Nethill Sheepdog Holidays - New for 2019 is our brand new luxury lodge complete with state of the art kennels. If you are looking for somewhere amazing to stay in the heart of the beautiful Scottish Borders for up to four guests and dogs take a look at our pages for Smiddyhill Lodge.
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.

I have been using Wonderdog original for a few years now. Not only do my dog's love it with lots of dry meat mixed through, 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 definitely will be continuing to use this quality product and recommend it to other. Nethhillbordercollies
