10 Generation COI report & Pedigree Analysis available on request.

Cocoa is my first purebred Aussie. I got her at 10 months old, and I didn’t even know herding was a thing people still did with their dogs! As I became more involved in dog sports and my training goals changed, Cocoa was right there with me. She is the best kind of dog a newbie could ask for: always willing to try something new and never takes my training mistakes personally. Considering that she is my first herding dog and doesn’t have a lot of titled working dogs in her pedigree, I think Cocoa has done very well. She has developed nice square flanks, and is very biddable. She is a loose eyed dog and tends to work fairly close, but she is very kind to her stock. On the farm she is fairly handy helping with chores, and she earned her Advanced Sheep and Open Duck titles in her first weekend of Trialing. Cocoa has had a successful trialing career on stock, earning numerous High in Trials and finishing in the top 10 at Duck Finals in 2016.
