A Way with Dogs

Watch the YouTube sheepdog trial film series

A Way with Dogs is the gripping new Sheepdog Trial from CSJ filmed in the countryside landscapes of UK and Europe, looking for the most skillful handler and dog teams.

Launched as a series of YouTube programmes, we set the trials on the stunning hillside Bwlch Isaf farm in North Wales, home to Ceri Rundle, founder of CSJ. Bwlch Isaf is where Ceri's father, the late H. Glyn Jones famously trained his 'One Man and his Dog' champions Gel and Bracken. The Old Trials field at Bodfari has been host to sheepdog trials for over thirty years.

Julie Siddons - Old Champ!

Just wanted to update you on my dogs. All of them are looking a lot better. The old one is now on Old Champ!, for the first time in his life we have found a food he loves. The other two are on Fit and Fast! and their coats are a lot better. I was very successful at Crufts this year with my young one winning the Countrymans Weekly Trophy in the BASC ring for working dogs.
