Sheepdog training sessions have been somewhat few and far between here recently, because we’ve been busy updating the sheepdog training tutorials as well as working on the website.

    Australian Kelpie sheepdog puppy, looking stylish

    After five days in Storm Imogen’s clutches… …the dogs are enjoying some watery sunshine, and Tucker’s looking stylish. We’ve had a wet and windy few days, in common with most of the UK of course.
