This page is under construction, updating with current Garlind Ridge collies that are therapy and service dogs.   

Nessie, Ivy, and Birdie

All Garlind Ridge Collies in Pennsylvania in the same family. Their Mom, Dee, has done amazing with them. 

Ivy, Nessie, Birdie are all therapy dogs with ATD. Ivy is also a crisis response certified dog. Ivy and Ness both have CGC, CGC-A, CGC-U and AKC Farm Dog titles. Bird has CGC. 

They bring comfort to children in need at schools during a crisis, help with suicide prevention, visit airports, attend events where there has been a loss of a child... The comfort they bring is amazing. Thank you, Dee. We know the time it takes to train all of your fur babies. These services are needed so badly.

Howard is a Garlind Ridge Collie here is Wisconsin. He works in hospice.  When patients are responsive, he engages with and comforts them.  Even when patients are not responsive, Howard brings comfort to their families.  He also is a huge favorite among the hospice staff. Howard and Mom, Beth, are appreciated by so many. Thank you, Beth! So much comfort you give. 


The Peachtree City Police Department is happy to announce the newest addition to the Auxiliary Police organization, a 5 year old female collie named Tilly. K9 Tilly will be the department’s first therapy dog. Tilly is a registered therapy dog with the national organization Alliance of Therapy Dogs. She is also a member of CAREing Paws, a premier animal therapy group in Georgia.

The intent of therapy dogs in policing is to reach citizens on a different level. Dogs are often a great conversation starter and make officers more approachable and strengthens the relationship within the community. Thank you, Karen for sharing. We love how so many have trained their collies from us so well to help others.
