Hi, if you check out the link above for BBC Scotland pictures, the Border Collie is Killiebrae Noah. He is now 6 years old. Not a working collie, just a pet but the most intelligent pet ever! Isn't he a handsome boy? Thought you might like to see this.

Hello Rachel - just to let you know that Puffin (Lady) has settled brilliantly at Broughton House. She's a super little dog, and - you were right - she completely ignores sheep & cows!! She is so clever, and learns something new nearly every day - although getting out through the cat flap wasn't on the list!! Thanks you - rest assured, she has landed on her feet and we will give her a very good life;)

Thank you so much for the time you took to speak to us last week when we visited you , Mirk, Laddie and Brier we were so thrilled and enjoyed watching the dogs work and all the tips you gave us. Hope your plans all come to fruition and we can come back to see you but this time we will be paying for the privilege. Thanks again and good luck. Regards Christine and Boyd and Mac.

Just wanted to drop you a line with an update on a pup from a Bitch sired by one of your dogs Killebrae Laddie.
She was Tan (00/309824)
The Pup Olly graded last month and is now a graded Search and Rescue dog with SARDA England.
I know several of the handlers have worked with you and have dogs from your kennel and siad you might be interested to see how some of the grandchildren are getting on.
He is a cracking dog, who is a great hunter and ranges really well.
Have a great Christmas and New Year

Yours Ian

Hallo Derec
I want to let you know,that the DVD you gave me I like very much.It is a pitty that the mame :The shepherd `s pup is wrongly chosen,because every body thinks that it is only about pups.Also the cenery is so beautiful.
It is a very good DVD for beginning handlers and dogs.
I wish you all the best for the coming year and regards Margaret

Although not bred directly from you, we have a pup we believe comes from your lines. Her father was Cap/Sid who i believe was son of Killiebrae Ben. We bought her from a farm in Bingley from G.Lee.
She is a superb dog, with the nicest temperament and extremely clever.
Obviously comes from good lines..both sides!

11/13/2012 2:58:30 PM - Helen Parsons, E-mail address is hidden

Hello, You were recommended by someone who bought one of your puppies.
I've just rescued a working sheepdog from a nearby farm. I've been told she is a working dog (aged 2-3yrs) but the other dogs bully her to the point of injury. I'd like to learn how to work her and I'm interested in your training clinics, I'd like to find out if the clinics are suitable for us and wondered if I can bring her along beforehand for you to assess her and find out if she already has the skills or potential to work. I have trained spaniels for field sports in the past but never trained a working sheepdog.
I have left my tel number on your answerphone it is 07789 632014 or 01946 815776.
I look forward to your reply.

I host a web forum where we discuss the pleasure animals give us and the lunacy of animal rights, amongst other things.

One of the things I like to do on a regular basis is post animal pictures because it attracts visitors.

I would very much like to post some pictures of your dogs.

Full credit will be given for any picture I post.

Les and I have Blue, the huntway, he is coming up to 1 year now, and he is a fantastic dog, looks the double of Digger. I can understand why you called him this, Blue loves digging too!

Hi Your puppies have been recomended to me by Wendy Wright, I'm very interested in putting my name down for a Jet x Mirk pup, preferably a bitch but if not available would consider a male. I'm an experienced Agility handler with 3 competition dogs and would consider one of these pups as an exciting prospect

I have Killiebrae Belle to be trained as a Mountain Rescue Search Dog having trained 4 Border Collie Search Dogs before.
I would only ever buy a new dog from you because you have the best reputation & training regime I have ever come across.
I trust the safety & security of ALL my future Mountain Rescue casualties when Killiebrae Belle is used if she makes the required SARDA grade.I thank you for the breeding of intelligent & non aggressive Border Collies.
I thank you for your kind help, your honesty & your ideas which I shared with you in your kitchen. Your Wife is a wonderful painter & we shall both visit you frequently. Both Jen & I found your company so fantastic.

Hello! We're fortunate enough to have a Killiebrae dog - his name is Rocky, and Ben was his father. He's got a wonderful temperament, and although he's getting on a bit, and is not working as much as he could have, his help with the sheep is invaluable. We bought him from Alexander Strom, who I think bought him from you, and who did a great job training him. Our home page is all in Norwegian, I'm afraid, but there is a photo of Rocky(star) on the page "Dyresiden"... There's also a link to this page there. Wishing you a great Easter... Greetings, Stine & Erling in Norway.
