Sadly, my beloved GSD, Chance, died before Christmas. My male tricolour Smooth Collie pup, Clancy, arrived in Feb 2014.
I chose him because he should be calm, sensible, relaxed and confident, but at the same time sensitive and empathic with people. These dogs are now the breed of choice for some therapy and assistance roles, especially being placed with families with autistic kids. My pup's father has sired quite a few therapy dogs and dogs of good temperament, who I have met. They are pretty easy dogs to manage and live with. Clancy is everything the breeder said he would be. Super friendly to people, good social skills with other dogs, confident with sights and sounds. He will be a part-time clinic dog for a psychiatrist.
Mainly to socialise my pup, and to relax with doggy people. I am working on a book about socialisation, and with people's permission, I would love to take some photos for the book.
Hi, I love dogs. I am a professional dog trainer (Wagging School) I have had 4 GSDs, 2 of them rescues, and 4 mixed breeds, also mostly rescues. I am a mature age woman. Now I have Clancy, M tricolour Smooth Collie, who was born on Christmas Eve.
