Rescue rehab – Maya’s story is one filled with excitement, a willingness to learn and an eagerness to work. But it wasn’t without challenges.
When Kathy heard about Maya’s sad predicament, she felt compelled to see what this little Border Collie was all about. Being an experienced trainer and having lived with a pack of border collies, Kathy was up for this rescue rehab to save sweet Maya.
Maya needed a home to call her own with someone who could communicate on her level. She found that home, and that person with Kathy. She also found a bunch of other dog friends, and some interesting reactions to them!

“Shaking my head at the failure of her 3 previous owners to train her, I mistakenly thought to myself: How hard can it be to train a 6 month old Border Collie?”
“Maya’s rehab focused on my number one rule: Don’t ask your dog to do a thing unless you’re 95% or more certain that your dog can do the thing.”
“I heard her needs and I worked on our partnership foundation at her pace.”
