This litter was bred with performance collies in mind and to date thus far appears to be of success. Both Sire and Dam are excellent Herders, with the Sire succeeding also in Obedience and Rally as well, whilst the Dam is one of the best Tracking Collies I have seen here in Victoria.

Rocky went to live in a lovely home in SA and has been going to obedience classes which he took in stride. He then progressed to trialling.

In the Obedience Rings he gained his CCD on the 23rd July 2016 at the age of 13 1/2 months.On 29th October 2017 Eva and Rocky gained their CD (Companion Dog) Title and on the 23 September 2018 at the SA State trial Rocky gained his CDX (Companion Dog Excellent) Title, On the 19/11/2018 Rocky and Eva received the TOP OPEN DOG (METRO) DOGS SA TOP DOG AWARD 2018. That was such a wonderful achievement for them.

In Rally-O he and Eva are also doing well having gained their (RN) Rally Novice Title on the 20th May 2017 in SA and then on 5th August 2017 gain their (RA) Rally Advance Title also in SA. . On the 1/7/2018 in SA Rocky and Eva gained their RE (Rally Excellent) Title. He has now also commenced trialling for his RAE in which he has already gained 4 qualifying passes.

Rocky has also been to have a look at sheep at which he is very quiet and polite for his first look as well as weight pull. He lives with a Finnish Lapphund who also looked at sheep and loved it. So Rocky will get another look in when Eva and the boys go again. He is still young and heaps of time for many things. He and his friend Koda enjoy long countryside walks with their owners too.

This is a special litter for the Dams owner Esther Smedley who kindly leased her to me, as well as the owner of the Sire and myself as we are all interested in the Performance side of Collie Rough and Smooth Breed. Once again a big Thank you to Esther Smedley for all the work she put into the early advancement of the litter and a big thank you also to Shelley Donald the owner of the sire for her on going support in the Dog Sport side of the breed and advice she is giving the new owners in the herding and Obedience fields.

A special big thank you to Rocky's owner Eva for the wonderful loving home and doing all these wonderful things with him to give him a chance to show what he is capable of.
