Ace by name and ace by nature. He is the cleverest, most positive dog I have met for a long time. He has great skills in reading other dogs, and so far not had a single falling out with anyone. He is quick to learn, and I have to be careful before I show him something new, as IF I get it wrong, he has got it .....wrong. Lively and fun describes him, glass not half full.... no Ace's glass is constantly overflowing with fun. He has sired a range of litters, all of whom are showing great potential in their chosen fields.One litter is growing up in Finland via AI.

I fell in love with his face, however he is very much not just a pretty face. He is very easy to train, placed third in his first open show when only just 6 months, and continues to be the most positive and biddable boy. He is eager to please and a joy to work and live with.

Smudge joined us in the Autumn of 2017, and his kind soul and enthusiasm for anything I ask of him is truly wonderful for a teenage hooligan! He has just started his agility training, but can ignore live bunnies a few feet away just to be with me.
