With my dog Victor at my side, I got my first exposure to the sport of sheep dog herding at the Kingston, Sheep Dog Trials Festival August 10 to 12, 2018.

Finally! We got a ticket into the VIP tent at Woofstock. We’ve been trying for a few years, always missing ‘the first 1000 people,’ cut off. Welcome to the 15th Anniversary of Woofstock, May 26 and 27, 2018, in Woodbine Park, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Woofstock claims the title of North America’s largest dog festival. So, […]
One week away… heading to Toronto, Ontario next week for the dog event of the summer! (check out last year here)
