Blaze came from Wiser Stockdogs in Wyoming. We drove out there to get Blaze and were impressed with his manners from the start. It is amazing how life can bring a certain dog into your life. That is what happened with Blaze! He is a very serious dog that has a little bit of a goofy side to him. Blaze has done great with his herding training and has become one of the dogs that I grab in an emergency. He is really starting to fetch stock around and driving stock is a breeze for him. He brings that serious attitude to working pens and we have seen him pass that on to some of his progeny. He will bite both ends but does prefer heels.
Blaze and I competed in his first herding trial in November of 2018. He brought home first and second place, earning him his title!
In his down time, Blaze absolutely loves to play fetch. Besides working stock, fetch is his favorite. He also enjoys running with the UTV and a good roll in the grass to get all those itchy spots.
