Border Collie

Dog description

Lily was born in July 2008. She came to me at 10 months. I was told the previous owners never saw her mother and were told her father was probably the sneaky next door border collie. She is my nose work dog that thrives under stress and loves nose work. It actually saved our relationship. She was part of a provincial pilot project to use pet sport dogs to detect invasive species mussels in 2015. We were one of the 13 teams that passed. She is: social, independent, smart and lovely dog.

Does best

She is an incredible scenting dog. She is trained on 9 different competition odours and on invasive species mussels.

Fun Story

Lily is jokingly called the border beagle or the black toller. She loves K9 nose work and is titled in 6 different competition associations. She has been the dogs who has taught me the most about being a good handler/trainer. She also gifted me with 5 of the best pups I have ever met.
