Sold Out!



Maggie is a 6-year-old Border Collie from Brazil.  She has a great personality and loves everyone.  She is a great worker but can be a “little speed machine” sometimes.  Norm is a former Canadian National Champion with his tremendous dog Joe, who retired in 2007 after running at Soldier Hollow. Norm has competed several times here at Soldier Hollow, making it to the Double Lift final. Norm was raised on a farm in England and has spent his life handling livestock. In 1980, he immigrated to Alberta, Canada to work as a herdsman. Norm believes in helping a dog to succeed and showing the dog how to do it right so they don’t learn how to do it wrong. Now living in Idaho with his wife, Vickie, Norm offers clinics, instruction, and sometimes has pups, started and trained dogs for sale.
