Sheep1At WVC we believe our collies should have the heart of a herding dog! So we have our own sheep they grow up with.

Washoe’s Presente de Anjo (Angel) and her brother Washoe’s Sol Brasileiro, CGC (Sunny) have earned their Herding Instinct Certificate! (see Herding Page)


Lance's Reserve High in Trial ribbon-2010WashoeLance1Lance earned herding titles in 2010, PT and HT and came in “Reserve High in Trial” at the 2010 CCA Western Regional Herding Trials. We try to put at least HIC certifications on all our kennel dogs. We think herding ability is important for our collies to have!
