Sheepdog Handlers

Magdalena and Piotr Michalscy

Based in Poland, Magdalena and Piotr own a working Border Collie kennel.

Magda is a very successful trainer in Obedience, Dog Frisbee and Herding and also deals with dogs with behavioral problems such as aggression, hyperactivity, timidity or owner separation anxiety.

Their focus lies in developing excellent lines of working sheepdogs and sporting dogs.

Their own dogs

Magda and Piotr are the proud owners of 12 Border Collies as well as 3 Scottish Terriers and a black Labrador named Galliano.

How did it all begin?

Magda says, "Many years ago I started to train my Airedale Terriers (there were two of them then) in obedience, skijoring and guarding.

Then the obedience and frisbee era came about and we decided to get ourselves a Border Collie.  Our Border Collies have since enabled us to broaden our horizons in shepherding, an area we are actively developing."

Which of your numerous successes stands out most in your memory?

“My greatest success stories involve dogs that I have managed to save from being put down, or being taken away from their owners, thanks to our work together.   It's incredibly gratifying to see how a relationship that was on the rocks, develops into one of mutual trust.

This for me is success……..helping dogs and their owners.”

Magda goes on to talk about other memorable successes

“Jezzio and Frisco at the outset had countless successes in Obedience and Frisbee. Frisco won his first obedience competition at the age of 6 months! Frisco, Sake, Sam, Yoda and the rest of our BC gang show an incredible talent for herding.

Our dogs have had many dog shows achievements, but this is not our priority with our Border Collies, as they are not show type but working type."

The focus now 

Magda emphasizes that their focus now lies in developing excellent lines of working sheepdogs and sport dogs and therefore their successes are reflected in the satisfaction of owners who are showing commitment to developing the instinct, drive and aptitude that Magda and Piotr’s pups possess.

She adds, “I must say that I am astounded by the commitment of our friends."

Magda and Piotr have even more to offer ..

Their kennels have grooming facilities and a training centre for herding.

They organize herding seminars with world-renowned trainers and regularly provide dog frisbee and obedience lessons...

Magda adds, “Of course we sell CSJ!”

Customers' Views

I won't do that again!!

Hi Ceri,

I thought I would email to let you know I've just put another order through. A friend bought our last bag so we haven't ordered for ourselves for a while.
The reason I am emailing is that we chose to try a bag of biscuits which were not CSJ and were from a local store. I am amazed at the difference in my dog's coat, health and smell (both fur and breath)!

When she was on the CSJ biscuits (probably for the last couple of years), people used to comment on how shiny her fur was. Her stools were always easy to pick up and her teeth were white. She's had ONE BAG (15kg) of different biscuits and her fur is dull and shedding. Her teeth are starting to go brown and she smells like an old dog. I am amazed as she's only 4 years old. I'm just hoping that some of the effects of the last lot of biscuits will be reversible with the CSJ!!

Have other people told you of such a big difference with biscuits? It really does appear that the poor biscuits have aged her! She's even sleeping more and for a border collie you'll know that's unusual in a young dog!  It's very strange in such a short period of time. What on earth do these companies use to make them??!

Regards,
Debbie B.
