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/.

Thank you for the samples, Cora voraciously enjoyed them all equally! As a start I ordered a bag of Champ Adult within 3 days she was calmer or not as manic, she is half way through the bag and has put weight on, looking slim and sleek not slim to thin.... and her coat feels lovely, smooth and we can even see a hint of whiskers on her chin, perhaps she will grow a wire coat.. after all. She is listening to  the whistle and generally her behaviour has improved, she still runs like the wind but just not so manically, as I write, she is snoring in her bed after a day outside. I will now order a couple of sacks, I am very pleased with the way this diet is suiting her, thank you.
