Congratulations to Carolin Kupper and Cuddles (B Bubbles), who were among a group of six dogs ( four Beardies, a Briard and a Catalan Sheepdog)and owners who were the very first to pass the new FCI Herding Test in Germany.
The test is a demanding one: full details can be seen here :
Carolin's second Brambledale, Cap (B Blue Cap) is only nine months old but she has already started herding training and earned high praise from the instructor.
As a city dweller, Carolin has to put a lot of effort into giving her dogs the experience and training necessary for herding success. We are proud of them all!
Carolin has also sent this link to a delightful video of Cuddles and Cap enjoying a romp near their Freiburg home http://youtu.be/RDirz1cjNh4
