JJ On The Cover Of Herding Dog Digest

Mr JJ & Megan Hof had an amazing time in Perry, GA. They were awarded 6 BEST OF BREEDS, 2 HERDING GROUP 1’s, 2 HERDING GROUP 2’s, a HERDING GROUP 3, and a HERDING GROUP 4. Every time they showed, they walked out of the HUGE Herding Group with a placement. Tons of breed and all breed points. What a fantastic team effort with the help of Patti Sneed More & Linda Hof.
