Born to Herd

Like a spring on a tight coil, as indicated by her alert ears, the Border Collie, Pee Wee, goes into a “down” in a strategic maneuver delivered by a whistle from her handler.

Within seconds another whistle sends her circling the flock, herding them in the proper direction.

Kris, a young trainee, looks on with eager anticipation vibrating in every fiber. The Border Collies competed at the AKC sheep herding trials during the 2012 Scottish Festival in Columbus Indiana.
