My Dogs

This page features dogs I am competing in sheep dog trials with currently. They may also be dogs or bitches that I breed from on occasion. Sheep dog trialling is my passion, and can be a fascinating sport to watch. For more information about local trials, please click here.

My trial dogs also do the work on the farm, and each dog has it's own strengths and weaknesses regarding stock work.


Tysswg Tom

ISDS Reg. No: 00/317649 DoB: 9/10/2011

Tom is a black and white dog with a smooth coat. Bred by J Hudd; Dam: Tysswg Fleece 270155; Sire: Tysswg Glen 303791 (both also J Hudd).

Tom is fully-trained and has completed his first winter nursery trials series, gaining first at the first trial and winning the 2013/14 S.E. Nursery Championship. He has represented Surrey Sheep Dog Society at the Inter-Society trial in 2013.

Tom has a great outrun and is naturally square-flanked. He will work sheep, cattle, poultry and pigs!



ISDS Reg. No: 00/317122 DoB: 6/10/2011

Belle is a black and white bitch with a smooth coat and prick ears, and one wall (blue) eye. Bred by KN Williams; Dam: Pandy Sali 273129; Sire: Greenhill Chip 296720 (L Tyler).

Belle is fully-trained and has completed her first winter nursery trials series, gaining two seconds and a first in trials during the series and came fourth in the 2013/14 S.E. Nursery Championship. In 2014 Belle came out of Novice and won the S.E. Novice championship.

Belle is lovely natured and biddable. She is stylish and paces her sheep nicely.


Faenor Don

ISDS Reg. No: 00/320889 DoB: 26/02/2012

Don is a black, white and tan, medium coated dog. Bred by C. Ridge; Dam: Cammen Jess 271781; Sire: Bob 296078 (AP Hinman).

Don is a very stylish dog who keeps a nice distance from his sheep. During the 2014/15 winter Nursery season I have had a few placings with him, so I am looking forward to running him in the summer.
