Default From Delaware!

Hi I'm Howard Gaines III from Harrington, Delaware. I own and train two Working Bouvier des Flandres with the DELMARVA WORKING DOG GROUP in Harrington, Delaware. I also have two Working Border Collies which are used on the farm and in my goose control business, FIRST STATE BORDER PATROL. I have been involved with dog training since I was about ten. In 2000, I became a certified Schutzhund DVG Trial Helper and a Qualified Training Director. Sorry no longer train for that sport. In addition, I am the co-trainer for the DWDG, a group from the Delmarva area (Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia) which trains for sport and K9 pleasure. There are only two Bouvier folks here in a German Shepherd dominated club...help please!

I feel that the working lines of the old Belgium cattle dog should be kept pure; keeping the working thing, the working thing! My dogs are used in K-9 personal protection and for farm style herding on Katahdin Hair sheep. And if that weren't enough, I am expecting my first Bouvier litter in mid April! I hope to use this venue to learn more about this working breed, to exchange view points with Bouvier owners, and to grow in the working dog area.

Hi Howard, and welcome to the forum. Congratulations on your upcoming litter. You are going to take pictures, right?

Mike
