ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use of trained Border Collie to ward off deer from rose gardens. Several remedies had been tried to combat the deer that ravaged rose gardens across the U.S. but none was effective until the idea of using trained Border Collie was tried by Ted Mills aka RoseDoc. His female Border Collie, named Rosie, has effectively guarded his fenceless garden and made it deer-free. RoseDoc advises garden owners to get themselves a trained Border Collie.
