Gain came to us as a service pup. I liked his mum, so when the pups came the decision was made to keep a pup. I was also looking for a new pup out of Jaff. And he delivers more than I ever hoped for.

He is a lovely dog with a very stable yet extremely enthusiastic temperament. He is very powerful and has an unbelievable sheep sense, a very good natural balance and outrun. He is a pleasure to work with and great fun to train. He developed very well, being extremely natural, very forward and positive.

At the age of 15 months he ran at his first trial, The Border Trial: a trial between 3 countries with a big competitor field, and came 1st

At the age of 2 he already qualified for the Continental Team, representing the Netherlands, in Finland at the CSC. We got into the final, and ended 9th. He did brilliantly under extremely difficult circumstances.

At the 4th WT Qualifier he came 3rd, making it in the World Trial Team for the 2017 World Trial, and also Qualifying for the Dutch National Double Gather Final. Becoming reserve National Champion at the age of 2!!

Some of his accomplishments to date.

Gain has been competing since the age of 15 months, winning his first trial.

His first few outings on sheep looked really promising, showing plenty of guts and style.

He was a very forward, happy and energetic pup with a wicked sense of humour and wit.
