same enthusiasm he shows for all our activities

This was his MACH run.
Dustin earned his Herding Tested (HT) title at
the SSCNC herding tests, Junior Herding Dog (JHD) on sheep on,
and his Pre-trialTested (PT) on sheep all in 2006.
Dustin's intense focus on sheep made him a fast and hard to
direct dog in the herding arena. We took a break from
sheep for several years to concentrate on other activities. He returned
to sheep to earn his started title in 2014.
Dustin's first run at an AKC herding trial. He was in the Herding Started Course A class.

Herding Started title.
Dustin doesn't think tracking
is nearly as much fun as herding and agility. But he
works willingly, and in November 2016, shortly after his
12th birthday, he became the first
breed champion Sheltie and only the seventh Sheltie overall to earn the Champion Tracker
