Sold Out!

Gode, Hans – GEMMA


Nice to her sheep and also nice to kids – loves to play with children, not a trait you always find with border collies.

Hans Gode is from Peoa, Utah and is the current President of the Utah Stockdog Association and volunteers here at Soldier Hollow.

SKU: N/A Category:


Gemma is a 4-year old Border Collie, out of the well known and successful Aled Owen’s Cap.  She recently moved into Open and has a very successful start, winning at Wild and Wooley and Chalk Creek in 2022 and 2023.  Gemma is an incredibly natural free dog that has excellent feel for sheep and their movements.  She is very obedient to commands and has extremely open flanks that are too a bit too wide at times.  Sheep like her because she works free, but she needs to work on the occasional ewe that just wants to fight.  She’s a wonderful dog to handle and never needs harsh corrections.  Off sheep she loves playing with children and catching mice!

Hans lives in Peoa Utah.  Many years ago, he met Mark Peterson, founder of the competition, moving his sheep with a border collie one evening.  He was a neighbor so Hans stopped by, inquiring about these skilled dogs.  They talked, and Mark handed him tickets to the upcoming Soldier Hollow Classic.  Hans attended and immediately started getting involved in the process of getting a border collie and learning what it’s all about.  His current trial dogs, Gemma and Kate, have placed top in several trials over the last couple years.  Hans is a captain with Delta Airlines, which is what relocated him to Utah many years ago. Early in his career, he worked on the space shuttle and has had the privilege of traveling to every continent but Antarctica!  Han’s other hobbies include chasing a toddler around the yard and wrenching on old cars.  He is also the current President of the Utah Stockdog Association and is volunteering here at Soldier Hollow.
