Player is our handsome ee-red merle Border Collie. Apart from his good looks, incredibly sound temperament, and great structure this boy can do it all. He has an amazing work ethic. He pours his heart into everything you ask of him and his smile is contagious. This boy just LOVES life.
He truly excels at everything he tries -- agility, dock diving, frisbee, herding, and lure coursing. In agility, he progressed quickly and in only 3 shows he was competing in the Masters level, already hitting 7.0+YPS in several Jumpers runs. He is a powerful dog, nice jumper, with nice turning ability and lovely natural distance. He uses his body very well both on and off the course. At just over 4 years of age with limited trialing, Player earned his Master Agility Champion (MACh).
Player loves dock diving and frisbee when he is not tearing it up on the agility course! His personal best in dock diving is 25'8" and earned an invite to compete at the 2015 Ultimate Air Dogs (UAD) Nationals as well as an invite to compete at the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge Eastern Qualifier in Boston, MA.
In 2016, Player became a Skyhoundz World Champion in Time Trial. He placed 2nd in Spot Landing and he took 5th in Pairs Distance/Accuracy. He also placed 4th in the North American Diving Dogs (NADD) Championships in Orlando, Florida competitive event of Air Retrieve with an impressive snag of 21', making him the first Border Collie on recored with NADD to hit 21'. He finished the year as the #1 Border Collie in Air Retrieve (all division) with NADD.
As of 2021, Player is retired from breeding ; we do have frozen semen stored for the far future.
