Rebecca and Scandal train exclusively with us at Herdabout K9 Academy.Rebecca and Scandal had trained exclusively with us here at Herdabout K-9 Academy, and the teaching of the running contact on the A frame really brought upScandal's Yards Per Second over her standings for 2010. Rebecca and Scandal did an awesome job in 2011. We quite expect this young team will do even better with their placements in the top dogs in Canada standings for 2012 and beyond.

Sophie (Herdabout The Speed Of White) received her ATChC at just 2 years of age. Sophie's first Q was June 25th 2011. Her First Title was August 29th, 2011. AND ... her ATChC was acheived on September 9th 2012. So it only took around 14 months to go from ADC to ATChC and that was mostly trialing just locally at trials hosted by Morning Star. 

Sophie has been really steady and she is getting faster and faster all the time. Dawn Chisholm has done an outstanding job training and handling this very young and super smart Herdabout Sheltie. 

A big CONGRATULATIONS to a job well done!

Herdabout Born Bi Solar Winds is a budding herding star. This Tuvok X Tazer puppy has inherited some great herding instinct through his strong working pedigree. We are very excited for his owner Terri Austin-Beech in Alberta and all the performance sports that this puppy will be trained for ...along with the ability to earn his Canadian conformation championship.
