I have been training this dog and he would be an ideal smallholders dog as he is sensible, wouldn't get you in trouble and will listen to commands.
He is 13 months old, black and white with mottled face and legs and is medium coated. He has a fab nature and loves people and other dogs. He is easy to control, he will work 3 sheep or 80 sheep and is working nicely. He is working at a distance now and is good , sometimes he needs some guidance but is very biddable and safe. He is great close at hand and putting sheep in pens / from field to field etc.
