Sheepdog Handlers

Katy Cropper

Katy is probably best known for winning TV's popular ‘One Man and His Dog' in 1990. She was the first lady to do so and captured the imagination of the public as well as the usual sheepdog enthusiasts.

How it began

Katy started sheepdog trialling when she was 23 – and says it was because she was ‘hopeless at everything else'! In reality it was because she married Jim Cropper and she had a 3 legged sheepdog. The rest is history.

Biggest success?

Katy says it has to be ‘One Man and His Dog', but also being in the team with Max and Trim the following year in Alnwick.

What's happening now?

Katy currently owns 9 Border Collies and one Labrador and spends her time:

  • Training people and their dogs
  • Training sheepdogs
  • Obedience training
  • Running courses
  • Shepherding
  • Doing drawings of dogs

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help, advice and great products. I have spent over a year struggling to keep weight on my very active rescued working sheepdog using a variety of expensive well known brands and numerous supplements from the vets. Not only have none of these worked but my dog didn't like the taste.

From the initial call with recommendations on what to try (it lasted over 30 minutes) and the free samples I have been amazed with CSJ. Barney has now been on CP21 Salmon for nearly 6 months and is a different dog. He has put on and is holding his weight; he no longer has a constantly upset stomach and he loves his food!

We also recently rescued another working sheepdog. Straight away we put her on the same CSJ food and again to dramatic effects. As well as the obvious health and dietary benefits we are constantly being stopped and asked what they are fed, both of their coats are amazing. I have no hesitation recommending CSJ to my friends, many of whom can't get over the improvements in the two dogs, especially when I tell them the cost!
