Cheryl Mentink & Sir Toby James
& Sir Toby James
Toby is a rescue border collie. I adopted him from a pet resort almost 2 years old. When I got him,
he had separation anxiety and major confidence issues. Noises and strangers scared him. Water terrified him.
One year later, he is a different dog. He’ll snuggle up to anyone to get a pet or two, (or until he’s satisfied that he’s finished - - trust me he’ll let you know). He has received his CGC (Canine Good Citizen) certificate.
He amazingly achieved his HTADI-g (beginner herding) working geese after 5 months with Nola as his handler. He loves to splash around in Nola’s pond.
Toby was a challenge at agility from the beginning. Every contact has been a trial in itself but we celebrate every success. Now we can do every contact. That’s my boy!!!
