Punch came to me as a 12 week old puppy from Betty Williams. His half sister, Spook, was a year older and I was wanting another Cody puppy. Betty picked him out of the litter, and he could not have been a more perfect fit for me. Early on Punch was a very biddable dog, always wanting to please me and very methodical in his work. He has so much natural stock sense that his training has actually been a joy! I would just watch him figure so many things out on his own without a word from me. He possesses a lot of balance, power, and eye, so moving his stock is really effortless. With minimum trialing, he completed his WTCH as a 3 year old in early 2013. In April 2013 Punch earned his RD title under the judging of Dana Mackenzie. Here are several of her comments from his RD evaluation:
"Strong heading dog on nose and face, but gives the stock a chance to move before gripping. Reads stock well, very strong on the head. Wears efficiently in pasture work. Intense aussie eye and very effective. Lots of natural rate and balance. Confident and intense on stock. Powerful, as he is not intimidated by his stock; holds his ground. Moves ducks as easily as lambs/ewes, and cattle. Excellent dog"

His offspring are showing great potential on livestock, and I have retained a son of his that I am very excited to train. I will continue to trial Punch the next few years with some specific goals in mind. I love this dog!!
