Zade is a 4-yearr old Border Collie out of Donna’s much loved dog “Ben.” Zade has many of his father’s wonderful traits and talent, Zade’s mother is a young talented bitch named “Trigger,” a strong, fast, bold dog with a lovely temperament. Zade also inherited many natural skills from her. He is a kind, strong dog with a huge desire to please and is a joy to live with and work. Zade is just beginning trialing in Open and we have much to learn and improve. Donna has been involved with Soldier Hollow Classic since its inception, now assisting with the volunteers who help put on this trial.  In addition to her duties here at the trial, Donna has provided a multitude of dog training services on a professional level for over 30 years. She has helped thousands of Utah dog owners train their dogs for competition or to be a good pet or obedience dog.
