Kerry Hamann reviewed Rivermaid Border Collie Stud – 5 star      29 April 

We bought our girl Tia from Rivermaid over 12 years ago. She is the most incredible natured dog - sweet, loyal and intelligent. And she is incredibly beautiful - a total supermodel of the dog world!
She has helped me raise my three children and has always been incredibly gentle with everyone she meets, including babies. She is very clever and has been a bit of an escape artist, but now sits in our front garden in Sydney, greeting everyone on their daily walks. She is adored by our whole neighbourhood and I am often asked where she came from. Thank you for such a wonderful gift!


"My name is Leah Curnovic & I have 2 beautiful Rivermaid border collies named Shadow & MacGyver, ages 6 & 2. They are such special boys & are very much loved by myself & my husband & everyone that has the pleasure to meet them. They have such great natures & as such have become a part of the Delta Therapy dog programme where we visit patients at the Campbelltown Cancer Therapy Centre at Campbelltown hospital. At the hospital they are almost famous, everyone knows who they are & are excited when they go to visit. They have such calmness & gentleness with patients & children, you would never know that they are also great athletes competing in dog sports such as agility & fly ball which they absolutely love. One of the great things about getting a Rivermaid border collie is the friendships that i have made through getting my boys with other people that own Rivermaid border collies & of course the bond that you form with Mumma Rachael. Rachael is always excited to hear how the boys are going & what they have been up to. I cannot imagine my life without my boys in it, they are exceptional dogs & I cannot recommend them more highly enough. Rachael has done such a good job with my boys & with all of the Rivermaid border collies that I know. With a Rivermaid border collie...the skies the limit because I believe that a Rivermaid can do anything & do it well...."


  •   I just wanted to send you some more photos of Cabbie, who is even more beautiful and sweet as ever. She’s such a well-behaved girl, and is currently in the office beside me, asleep. Matt and I just love her to bits, and she has made our life even more enjoyable than it was before. We can’t imagine life without her. It is a great credit to you and your breeding abilities. She is the most well-natured dog, and everyone comments on how lovely she is.

  • "Nelson is an absolutely beautiful looking dog but more importantly for us is his temperament. He is lively, lovable and is placid with people and other dogs. Now that we have him we could not live without him!" He really does not have a mean bone in his body, we have never seen any type of aggression from him towards people or other dogs.

  • Just a quick note to let you know Spinner has settled in REALLY well. I have never know a pup to be so confident in everything that he does.


  • Thank you again a million times over for your dedication and all the hard work you put into doing such a fantastic job with all your dogs. The difference in having an intelligent, well bred and even tempered puppy, as you would know, is just unbelievable and makes that whole adjusting period so much easier. Her settling into our family has taken no time all and she quickly learns what is ok to do and what things aren't allowed.
  • Quotes Having owned Border Collies for the last 32 years, I have to say that I am very impressed with our latest pup, Fleet from Rivermaid. Our regular breeder had recently retired and I was very dubious about sourcing another breeder, however through her recommendation, we found out about Rachael and her pack of Border Collies. Fleet is now 12 weeks old and he is amazing. He is confident with people and dogs of all shapes and sizes. He is curious and shows no fear about anything. He is the biggest time waster for us and his personality is amazing. He is quite mischievous but in a comical way. Our vet of 32 years, and a BC owner himself, commented on what a lovely specimen of a BC he is, and more importantly what a lovely personality he has. Rachael is to be congratulated on the quality and temperament of her BCs. I will be a return customer and I recommend Rachael to any prospective BC owner. Quotes

    Our Fleet - What a personality!

    Quotes We were lucky enough to get a female pup from Roxy and Trapper?s litter of November 2018. She is a beautiful red and white, like her mother, but really it is her lovely nature that makes us grateful for her every day. She is very affectionate, fun-loving, and outgoing ? taking her out is almost a public service for all the people she meets and brings joy to. She is a lovely family pet but is also all dog, absolutely loving swimming, chasing, and now sheep-herding. Her temperament is a real tribute to Rachel for her breeding and care, and also to young Dani who was heavily involved in the litter?s upbringing: she is absolutely thrilled with every young girl she meets, clearly remembering Dani. We greatly appreciate the good start to life our girl had at Monkerai. Quotes
