 In 2014 Rocky became the first Cardigan in history to have all three herding championships and to earn the coveted Register of Merit GOLD level producer award!  He has exceeded our wildest dreams!  What an incredible journey Rocky has taken us on.  Special thanks go to the owners and breeders of his children for exhibiting them in conformation, herding, and obedience competitions.

Rocky finished easily with 3 majors at 16 months.

Rocky won the highly competative Stud Dog class at the 2011 Nationals in Houston, TX.   We couldn't be more proud of our boy!!

 

Some of Rocky's breed highlights are a pretty head, huge ears, nice forechest, good length with a level back, long low set tail, short hocks, correct glossy coat. Of special interest to breeders of blue merles, Rocky is a blue black, with virtually no obvious brindling. This special boy comes from a strong OFA pedigree and is DNA PRA clear as well. He has a biddable and sweet temperament, loves his training sessions, doesn't know a strange person or dog, and he loves to cuddle.

Rocky's herding accomplishments have been amazing!  He has been High In Trial 2 years in a row at the Cardigan Nationals.  He has garnered several all breed High in Trials from the sheep, duck, and cattle classes, and he is now winning in the difficult B courses!  His herding abilities have been made possible by the gifted herding training and exhibitor Dawna Sims of Dewey, AZ. 

 Thank you, Dawna!!

Rocky will continue his herding career with Kim and Leo and will help us with our sheep and goats here at the farm.  His most important job is as our constant companion!

The 2014 National Specialty in Missouri saw Rocky walk away with another High In Trial and earning his AKC Herding Championship!

There are no words to explain the relationship between a successful dog trainer and their partner.


We are very impressed with the quality of Rocky's children to date.  He produces sound, elegant, and super intelligent/biddable puppies.  To my eye, his puppies look like a blend of Rocky's beautiful parents, Maya and Luther.  We look forward to more Rocky kids in our future!  See Rocky's kids page for photos of some of his youngsters.
