Faansie is from South Africa and is back at Soldier Hollow for the fourteenth time. One of South Africa’s dominant handlers, he is now one of North American’s leading handlers – a handler greatly respected throughout the world. Faansie and his family came to the United States in December 2014 and are now living in Texas. Faansie travels all over the U.S., giving lessons and clinics and competing with his fine dogs. In addition to raising, training and selling border collies, the Bassons also raise and sell border terriers.
