Brackenhill Starr of Bon-Clyde Winning Best of Breed
at Border Collie Nationals in St. Louis, November 2004.
Judge was Edna "Katie" Gammill
OUR BREED HANDLING CLASSES:
These classes are designed to prepare both handler and
dog for competing in the conformation ring. Dogs learn
how to "stack" (stand correctly and show off
their lines) for the judge, and the correct "gaits"
(moving correctly). Dog and handler practice the typical
patterns called by competition judges.
Breed Handling classes meet in conjunction with our
regular class schedule. Handlers
should bring health records for dogs when attending
the Breed Handling classes for the first time.

Gammill, on Best of Breed Ch. Brackenhill Starr of Bon-Clyde:
"She is a split-faced bitch with an inquisitive
eye, good head proportions, sweet face, and dark pigmentation.
Her hard muscle tone and conditioning, layback of shoulder,
forward thrust of head and smooth graceful movement
exemplified the true Border Collie. She was a winner
from all directions and took charge of the ring."
