Jumpin’ W Bea is a 10 year old female Border Collie — a sleek and stylish, strong-eyed dog. At 10 (often retirement age for these working dogs), she is still quite athletic and keen. Over the years, she has won numerous competitive trials.
Noelle raised a hand spinner flock in Alaska from 1989 to 2005. She raised and trained her first Border Collie in the 1980’s,”which was before everything,” so the only way for her to learn how to train a herding dog was to fly to the “lower-48” for clinics, or “fly the lower-48 up to Alaska.” Noelle also had to fly to the lower-48 to earn enough trial points to compete in USBCHA Finals for a decade, until she moved the farm in 2005. JumpinW Farm is now in western Washington state where Noelle raises Katahdin sheep. With the love and support of her husband, Dan Williams, Noelle has raised, trained and competed with dogs from her own breeding for over 30 years, as well as selling pups, trained dogs and helping others train their dogs.
