Sheepdog Handlers

Matt Watson

Matt has had numerous trials wins over the years and says his most memorable is winning the 2010 English National Championship with Milo 266887.

Winning the 2004 English Shepherds Champion with Cockburn Storm234037 and having an excellent run with him on One Man and His Dog in 2006 also stand out in his memory.

The kennel currently comprises 9 Border Collies.

How it all began

Matt says... " In 1997 I bought my first dog who was good enough to trial. I was then taught by another CSJ user, Anna-Lou Daybell of Pembrokeshire sheepdogs how to handle sheepdogs. All my current dogs go back to her Cockburn breeding lines.”

Matt sells CSJ products and can be contacted via:
Phone 07854 301140 or e-mail matthewwatson449@btinternet.com

"Since changing to CSJ I have been really happy with all ages of my dogs, from pups to the old dogs .They all look well with good shiny coats. It is also very economical to feed.” - Matt Watson
