About Nan...

Imp. Nan

DOB: January 28, 2016

Nan's hip score from Europe is 0:0 and elbows are normal (I do have plans to get her OFA's done here in North America over the summer) Nan is also DNA Normal for the full breed panel through Optimal Selection

Nan came over from Italy recently (December 2020) from a friend, Gianni Canopoli of Blacksheep Border Collies. Nan flew into Toronto, Ontario but due to Covid I was unable to cross the border to collect her so my good buddy Laura did the dirty work and Nan stayed with her for a few days before making her way to me via another friend who happens to be a trucker that crosses the border regularly. Despite her journey taking nearly 10 days from start to finish from Gianni to me, Nan has proven herself to be an outstanding girl. Her demeanor is so very kind and sweet, she's also a really happy, playful side but she's also really intense at times. She is very sure of her self in the pack but also has no desire for causing conflict and just goes with the flow. She has found her 'sheep' in the pack and is attached to Grit most of the time when outside in the yard. We are just ramping up for Spring training season and Nan has plans to work with my friend Cindy at lessons and will come over to work Nan here at home when our sheep come back in May. 

The litter of pups she whelped after arriving were SUPER confident, pushy puppies. They were a bit much when it came to food and actually needed to be separated into small pairs for mealtime but the food drive has proven to be fantastic when it comes to training now. Toy drives were really good as well and many are natural retrievers with very little effort to 'train' it.
