Welcome to Helsley Ranch

Located in Caldwell, Idaho, the Helsley Ranch was established in 2000 as a training facility for top quality working border collies.  Our breeding program has the reputation of producing quality puppies bred specifically for their abilty to work stock.

About Don

Don has been actively involved in raising and training border collies for more than twenty years. Prior to his involvement with border collies, he trained and showed cutting horses.  After thirty-five years with Idaho Power, Don currently devotes all of his time to training, trialing, and judging border collies.  He is now available full-time for judging assignments and clinics.  Don is a quiet man, with a reputation for fairness and honesty.  He has succeeded in then in the trialing world, not only as a competitor, but as a well-respected judge.

About Jeanie

Before meeting Don, Jeanie trained and showed horses in California.  She has been a dog groomer and has run successful dog grooming businesses in California and Idaho.  Trialing border collies has been a natural progression for her.  Currently, she competes right along side Don in the open divisison.  Jeanie leaves the bulk of the training to Don, while she tends to the everyday care and socializing of the puppies at H/R Border Collies.
