When Kathy heard about Maya, she felt compelled to see what this little Border Collie was all about. 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! Maya’s story is one filled with excitement, a willingness to learn and an eagerness to work. But it wasn’t without challenges. Tune in to this episode of Enlightened By Dogs to hear all about her rescue rehab story!

  • How hard can it be to train a border collie?
  • The longest leashing in history and emergency dental surgery.
  • Building a foundation with a wild and compulsive herding dog.
  • How past punishment impacted Maya’s personality.
  • How Kathy nurtured a brilliant partnership with Maya.

“Shaking my head at the failure of her 3 previous owners to train her, I pondered: 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.”
