Diesel is a black and white rough coat Border Collie from a performance dog breeding between an agility-bred bitch and an AKC/ASCA herding stud. A slow maturing boy he spent his first 18 months just looking around for something better to do than pay attention to me!  He has come a long way and will even humor me with obedience and trick dog training on occasion. But alll he actually wants to do is work sheep.  He is very hard wired and his drive for herding is intense. Thankfully Suzy Applegate took him on and truly understands him. Coming back from an injury he is now finishing up his training so that he can compete at the Pro-Novice level in USBCHA.

Tilly is a "field bred" Golden Retriever. She is fast, athletic and loves to work. We joke that she is golden retriever on the outside but a border collie on the inside. She loves all children and has from the get-go, proving that loving children is simply deep within the DNA of some dogs. Tilly shows lots of talent for agility, obedience and nosework. But luckily for me she will try anything I put in front of her (and she has!) including dock driving, tricks, freestyle, parkour and field work.

Dot and I compete in USBCHA at the Pro-Novice level. A black and white smooth coat Border Collie, Dot was bred by Suzy Applegate, who trialed her to the National level in USBCHA Open. "Dottie" is an incredibly talented dog and an amazing teacher. I am so very lucky to have her living with, trialing with and working for me.
