Jess is a nine year old border collie.  She was born with arthritis in her hip and has a rare form of epilepsy called Border Collie Collapse, which is exercise induced.

Jess is the most loving dog considering all she has been through; she adores being fussed and loves to do obedience, agility (Low impact) and tricks.

All Jess’s activities have been specially adapted to take her health problems into consideration.  She can be hyperactive and obsessive when bored.  She is fun and very playful.  Being a Border collie she is highly intelligent but can be over focused therefore Jess needs calm and assertive handling.

Jess can provide inspiration to anyone overcoming health problems and disability.  She has such a zest for life and has not let anything stop her living her life to the full.

Jess is easily excitable and does not like any anger shown towards her.  This is useful for people with anger management issues. By working with Jess, pupils can actually see why it is important to keep their anger under control because of the way it affects her.

When people work with Jess she helps boosts there self esteem and confidence.  Her affectionate personality really gets in their heads and hearts.
