Aron is available at stud to aprroved bitches.
Aron is a very clever young lad. I started introducing him to sheep when he was about 8 months old as he was starting to get into mischief from boredom. The first time to sheep, he had mastered his lie down and walk forward commands. I would hardly believe what I was seeing. By his third time on sheep, he knew 'come bye.' Fourth time, he had mastered 'away' as well. It was then I realized he was a very quick learner. Despite this, I have taken his training very slowly and not pushed him at all. I ran him in the nurseries this year but I am planning on running him in the nurseries next year as he will still be eligible. He has won two nursery trial this year and has some minor placings. He finished 3rd overall in Carmarthenshire, behind kennel mates Ciaran and Leith. He finished second at the 2017 South Wales Nursery Final.
Since the nurseries, I have been offering him more challenging work situations. He has now mastered all of the outruns on our farm and is showing an adeptness to be guided anywhere. He is fantastic to command and can think through situations on his own.
He is starting to get the hang of shedding and is being challenged in that skill with progressively harder 'asks'. At only 18 months of age, I am very excited about Aron and hope he will become a top Open dog for the 2019 trial season -or maybe 2018, if I can't contain my enthusiasm and his.
