I'm Jay, and I'm stepping firmly into the dog world. I've had Border Collies for more years than I care to think about, and in a previous section of life was a sheep farmer. Currently I'm working towards improving my technical dog knowledge as a prelude to IMDT courses. I have 2 dogs right now, Red the 13 year old (14 next month) failed sheepdog, and Finn who is 18 months old and dog/people reactive and is teaching me new things every day. Both are tri blue merles and both are very definitely characters! I'm looking forward to finding my way around here!
