About the Film being shown here
Episode 1 introduces Border Collies and tells us a bit about the breed, and about Border Collie Rescue and the York centre. We meet 'Dot' and 'Gael' at the beginning of Gael's sheepdog training and take a look at 'Patti' in her new home.
Episode 2 tells more about how we use sheep at the centre to help assess dogs and looks at Stock dog 'Meg' and Sheepdog 'Flash' in their new home. 'Sally' and her 8 pups are introduced and we follow more of Gael's training.
Episode 3 starts as the centre prepares for new floors in the stable Block. We meet 'Molly', assessed, selected and rehomed to be a Search and Rescue dog, saved by people and now saving peoples lives. 'Gael' progresses to a larger flock and Sally and her 5 remaining pups go out for a run together.
Episode 4 shows a variety of dogs being brought to the centre for assessment. 'Gael' goes solo, without 'Dot' to hold her paw. We meet 'Bryn', assessed and re-homed to be a Police dog for detecting drugs, firearms and explosives. 'Sally' has a last run with her 3 remaining pups before she is re-homed.
Episode 5 introduces 'Biting Shep' and RSPCA cruelty case, 'Natalia', both referred to BCR for behavioural modification. 'Rab' and 'Fly' - as different as chalk and cheese - help each other in their new home. Gael helps with final assessment of 'Sweep' and 'Trim', the last two pups from Sally's litter.
Episode 6 shows Gael, now in charge of the sheep, helping with assessments at the centre, and gives insight as to how the charity raises some of the funds to pay for it all. We meet Nell and her sheep, hear from a number of volunteers at the centre, say goodbye to the dogs featured and take a last look at what Border Collie Rescue is all about.
