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.

CP27 and CP30 by Matthew Clarke

By Matthew Clarke
 
It all started in April with a long drive from Carlisle to a small village called Weissbach near Inzell in Germany close to the Austrian border.
 
We took our bitch Piper over to do a repeat mating with a fantastic lead dog from a good Bavarian friend of ours Andi Birkel.
 
After a scan 5 weeks later we had confirmation that the mating was successful and Piper was expecting puppies fantastic the gamble had again paid off.
 
At the 6.5 week stage we took Piper off the CSJ CP 30 and fed her on the cp 27 week 7, week 8 and she was really growing and looking in fantastic condition. Then on the 27th of June, Piper gave birth to 6 fantastic puppies, 4 bitches and 2 dogs, all weighing in excess of 480 grams. They were complete whoppers!
 
At the age of 3 weeks we started to wean the puppies on to the CP27 soaked in warm water and mashed up the puppies couldn't get enough they loved it, tthere was no question the puppies were lacking any nutrients from the food they were growing at such a rate .
 
At the first trip to our vets at the age of 8 weeks, the puppies at this point getting 4 feeds a day, but the vets couldn't believe the size and excellent condition of these youngsters ,they said what are you feeding them on!
to which we replied ,  CSJ
 
We went on to keep the puppies, until they were 15 weeks old , one of which remained in Quinaya's kennel, the other 5 were about to start their new lives as working sled dogs in Germany and Austria. All of which I'm confident will be at world championship level in the very near future
 
When our friends from across the pond came to make a selection of thir e puppies, they were amazed at the condition and excellent growth that CSJ had provided for these future stars
 
So we would like to take this opportunity to say a great big thank you to all at CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds, for their fantastic support and nutritional advice
