A September 2018 puppy, Chip joined the family in November of that year, in the midst of a winter storm. A border collie is a whole new adventure and how exciting to see what he will have to teach me! Chip is AKC CH pointed, out of the puppy classes. He is learning some obedience basics and some tricks, but our main focus has been split between sheep herding and agility. He earned his AKC Trick Dog Novice and his UKI Beginner Speedstakes & International (agility) titles, plus his Herding Instinct Certificate, all in 2020. In 2021 he has earned his AKC Novice Standard, Novice and Open Jumpers with Weaves and Novice FAST agility titles and really exciting for us, his PT title in AKC Herding. He also took part in his first AHBA herding trial and placed 3rd with a score of 84 out of 90! In 2022, Chip has so far completed his Open FAST and Open STD titles, so we are working on Excellent level in all of those. He has collected a couple more CH points in AKC, and is also nearly to his UKC Championship.
