Herding Dogs

MACH Sunnyvale Sir Austin Healey CGC - Shetland Sheepdog
Austin Austin was born July 24, 2004. What a joy to be owned by this little guy. He shows all the Sheltie traits intensely loyal and affectionate to his owner and yet hes reserved toward strangers. Hes extremely playful at 2 years of age and each day is such a blessing to be able to work and train with him. Hes taught us a lot about patience and consistency and, most importantly, to have fun. Hes got that Sheltie work ethic and a passion towards agility that we hope transfers over to obedience, rally and herding. Thank you Beki Vale for allowing us to own this very special guy and to make him a part of our family!

Chance Alibi's Sirius Beyond Chance UD, MX, MXJ, RE, PT, FMX, NAC, NGC, P!, PD! PJ1, PS1, ASCA CD (Chance)
Chance's moment of fame came when he played the role of "the trick dog" in a local production of The Will Rogers Follies.He blossomed under the attention of the chorus girls, wanted to play tug with the trick roper, and loved the applause. He also loves swimming, balls, and his frisbee, but his favorite toy is his beagle "sister". He has a wonderful aussie sense of humor and puts his own unique spin on everything he does.

Connor is active in Agility, Flyball and Herding and following in the footsteps of Kelly and Casey. Connor is my first ever Blue Merle (actually he is also a tri-color pup - blue/white/tan) and has a unique look with his one blue eye and one brown eye. He is lots of fun and learns very quickly.

Cavall Regent Dixie Blues OAP, AJP, CGC, TDI - Cardigan Welsh Corgi
Dixie Dixie is a versatile and fun loving dog who is always eager to please. She enjoys agility and easily earned her agility titles. I have discovered that her other love is herding. I had Dixie herding instinct tested at the Cardigan Nationals. The first time she saw sheep, she instantly knew what to do with them and earned her Herding Instinct Certificate with flying colors. Dixie has also spent much time in the Junior Handlers ring with my son, Kenny, where they have won many group placements.

Shenandoah Morning Star Grace CGC, TDI - Shiloh Shepherd
Gracie Gracie is a 7-yr.-old smooth gray sable female Shiloh Shepherd, (29", 115 lbs.) from Shenandoah Kennels in PA. She has her CGC and Therapy Dog International certification. We still need to work on eliminating barking at strangers, though, before we really try to do therapy! I think she really enjoys coming to classes at HOTC. We look forward to getting into more obedience work, and beginning agility and rally this fall.

Kira Kira was adopted from a German Shepherd rescue at the age of 2. She has more energy than she knows what to do with, but she aims to please. The rescue group describes her as a "nut", and that is a good description. She is enjoying obedience class, and will eventually do agility. She's a sweet girl that just needed a job to do.

Windermere's Tale of a Twister - Cardigan Welsh Corgi
Tayler Tayler is a playful and loving dog. She is our resident clown and can always find a way to make our family laugh. When she is not getting into something, she loves to play Tag with Dixie, my other Cardigan. If the game should begin in the house, it is sure to knock over lamps and flip over chairs. Tayler conforms closely to the Cardigan Welsh Corgi standard. At her first show, she took Best Puppy in Sweepstakes out of a large class of 15.
