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.

Each trial was filmed to make 8 online programmes on CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds YouTube channel. This brand new sheepdog trials series will include 5 qualifying trials with 15 runs, 2 double gather Semi-Finals with 6 runs and a Final with 3 runs. Each programme is released approximately two weeks after the last one. Find out more on our ‘A Way with Dogs’ website: https://www.awaywithdogs.co.uk/awwds-s2/how-it-works/.

Lesley Knowles - CP27 Puppy

Lesley Knowles - CP27 Puppy

Twiggy had her first litter of pups earlier this year and following advice from CSJ I used CP27 for Twiggy in the last stage of pregnancy and for weaning the pups.

The 5 pups all took to the  feed very well, grew very evenly and were lovely healthy pups. They were all early reaching their developmental milestones, were all very keen to learn and had  mastered basic commands by 8 weeks of age and then each pup went off to its new home and settled in very well right from the first night.

Their new owners have been thrilled with how well the pups coped with such a big change in their lives and as breeders we were very pleased with how well the puppies did.
