Our new filmed 4-part Sheepdog Trial series
We’re very excited to be launching our own series of Sheepdog Trial programmes called ‘A Way with Dogs’.
Inspired by Ceri Rundle and her late father’s (H.Glyn Jones) own experiences in Sheepdog Trialling, Ceri wanted to launch a new type of filmed Sheepdog Trial programmes that focus on the tension of the competition, the expert handling and the relationship between dog and handler.
The first series is filmed in the rolling green hills of Denbighshire. Future plans involve moving round the UK to film in different areas of country landscape, each with new handlers, dogs and fresh challenges.
The handlers are simply the best of the best. In the first series of A Way with Dogs, nine of North Wales’ top handlers focus their attention on dog, course and sheep to win the coveted A Way with Dogs title.
The programmes will be posted onto YouTube and aired on the CSJ website: http://www.csjk9.com on:
- Monday November 14
- Monday November 28
- Monday December 12
- Monday December 26
Filmed by film producer Peter Melling and presented by TV star Bryony Billson, the quality of the production is guaranteed from start to finish.
Expert trainer and handler Mike Northwood is on hand to comment on the handlers’ skills and the dogs’ moves. He helps to explain the dynamics of the course, handler decisions and tricky situations.
The tension is hair raising from the start. Years of training, practice and skill has gone into each competition round. Ceri has set a practical but very testing, hillside course which really tests the skills of the handlers – as well as the judge – twice World Champion, four times Welsh National winner and Supreme Champion Aled Owen. Each handler and dog has fresh sheep for every run.
Now try putting your own skills to the test and work out who you think will win at the A Way with Dogs grand final on Boxing Day 2016.
Don’t miss the first programme on Monday November 14th
