New press release: Katy’s way!

Ex public schoolgirl Katy Cropper tells how at 19 having seen a sheepdog trial in Anglesey, she “Got rid of the husband and bought a sheepdog” on CSJ’s new A Way With Dogs site: https://www.awaywithdogs.co.uk/handler-interviews/

Coming to public fame in 1990 as the first female winner of One Man and His Dog she went on to international acclaim as a handler, breeder and trainer of sheepdogs.

In the fascinating and sometimes funny 20 minute video on home turf at Shap with her dogs and sheep Katy’s passion shines through as she shares memories and insights into how she chooses and starts training her Border Collies and tells Paddy Fanning, “It’s a lifetime study.”

As well as working and trialling her dogs Katy holds courses and trains for other owners and tells would be trials enthusiasts, “You need to want this more than anything – it’s an emotional rollercoaster and it’s hard!”

She touchingly pays tribute to H. Glyn Jones (the father of CSJ’s founder Ceri Rundle) who helped and encouraged her and says his book ‘A Way of Life’ was invaluable. 

https://www.awaywithdogs.co.uk/handler-interviews/  also features interviews with other handlers in the soon to be aired A Way With Dogs 2 in which Katy runs her 8 year old Border Collie Zac – saying, “I’m still in shock, I was honoured to be invited to take part amongst such a skilled and renowned field of opponents.”
