We thank Aled Owen of Wales for his excellent three-day sheepdog handling clinic held here at Heatherhope on August 31 and September 1-2.
Aled worked tirelessly from dawn to dusk each of those days helping nine handlers and 13 dogs advance in their teamwork. We heard nothing but praises from the handers for the excellence of help they were given, along with their hope that Mr. Owen would return to offer another clinic–something we will be working on.
We also heard good things from the trial field as Aled went on to judge the 25th Anniversary Wisconsin Working Stock Dog Association Trial in Portage, Wisconsin. One who scribed for him in the double lift finals said that it was like attending a clinic to sit in the judge’s box that day.
Thank you, Mr. Owen, for all your help!
