OOOH! I love sheepdog trials. I used to watch them in the UK. Those dogs are so clever. this is a great action shot...you can see how focused the dog is.

They are so very smart, and fun to watch. They work like a machine.

That is a beautiful dog! I like how you caught it in mid-stride.

Nice picture. I have always been very impressed by the dog's natural instincts.

I adore these dogs - my sister owned one. Smart as can be. I would love to watch a competition such as this.

Wish I could have a dog but we are not home enough and it wouldn't be fair to the pup.

Enjoy the weekend!

I used to work with a teacher who trained herding dogs and she used the same training principles in her classroom on her students! I learned so much from her and I use them myself. Great picture!
