Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue - Welcome!

Welcome to Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue (MABCR). We are a 501(c)3 organization run primarily by volunteers that currently serves the Mid-Atlantic region, including Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Virginia and West Virginia as well as the District of Columbia.

 

Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue is a haven for Border Collies that have been discarded, neglected, abandoned or stray. Many of these dogs are turned into animal shelters through no fault of their own, but because their previous owners found themselves unable to handle the challenges border collies offer or because changes in their lives left them unable to properly care for their dogs.

 

Knowing and loving this breed allows Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue to rescue these dogs from an uncertain future and place them into caring, responsible homes. MABCR knows each of their dogs intimately and what each requires to be properly placed into a new home. Dogs that arrive neglected or with 'issues' receive special care and training to allow them the chance to rehabilitate. Assessment of each dog can determine if they should be placed as a pet only or an actual working dog home, involved in herding, goose removal, agility or obedience.

 

 

We hope you love our new website as much as we do.

 

Many thanks to Global Media Solutions for building this beautiful site for us! We hope you use this site to learn more about our mission, to find out how wonderful rescuing a dog can be, and to find out more about our cool Border Collies (and other critters) available for adoption..

We are always looking for great volunteers and foster homes for our pups. If you are interested, please send us an email at SLR@mabcr.org

A blunt, but completely spot-on article....

I LOVE this quote from Dr Yin:

Positive Does Not Mean Permissive

It’s important to realize that positive does not mean permissive. Regardless of which species you’re dealing with there must be rules and guidelines for behavior.

Rule # 1: The animal should respect your personal space and enter when given permission. That is, dogs should not jump on people unless the humans have solicited jumping, horses and goats should not walk over your toes or butt or push you with their heads, parrots should not fly and land on your head and walk all over you like you’re a jungle gym. Instead pets/animals should ask for permission for your attention and everything else they want by sitting or standing quietly and calmly and focus on you. It’s up to the humans to pay attention and reward this polite behavior.

Rule # 2: The overall goal is to train your pet to respond to your cues/command to, for instance, come, lie down, walk nicely on leash, the first time you ask without your needing to beg or plead or carry treats or have a pinch collar or choke chain on. The response should become a habit.
