Hops is a super friendly boy who loves to work. He has a lot of power, athleticism, and drive but also has an incredible off switch.
Hops comes from a long line of versatile dogs. His father, CH OTCH Starfire's Tall Tails UDX OM2 VER HSAs HSBs HIAs HIBs HXAs HXBs OA NAJ, also known as "Epic" is a dual champion in obedience and in conformation but also excelled in AKC agility and herding. Epic has many accomplished kids and grandkids competing in agility, herding, obedience, conformation, and disc. Hops' grandsire and grandam (Epic's parents) were two extraordinary dogs, too; "Smasher", TC Gymbaroo Tried And True UDX5 RAE, was a triple Champion in AKC herding, conformation, and obedience and "Saga", CH OTCH MACH Starfire's Next Chapter UDX RN MXB MJB NF, was also a triple Champion in conformation, agility, and obedience.
Hops is currently in training for agility, dock diving, obedience and herding and is excelling in all venues with limited trialing. In dock diving, he has a personal best of 25'6" and was the #5 Border Collie in North American Diving Dogs (NADD) and the #8 Overall Masters Dog for 2016!!!! In 2017, he finished as the #10 Border Collie in NADD and the #6 Overall Masters Dog! He also took fourth place at the NADD National Championship Finals! He is adding Air Retrieve to his schedule in 2019 as well; with his first jump being an 18' grab! In agility, he is a good jumper and gives great distance. Hops is a team player, which we love to see in a dog. In herding, he has lovely natural square flanks, good feel and balance, and is kind to his sheep. We are very excited to see how this litter matures. These puppies are sure to achieve great things!
