Tess is out of Griff and Tiki. We have waited years to do a mating like this. These two encompass all of the dogs we have bred over the years with Tess being the 6th generation Southridge. We always had high hopes for what these two would produce and Tess has not let down the side.
Tess is strong eyed with a beautiful natural working instinct and very stylish. She is highly and easily trainable and just a joy to have around. It has taken just 3 x 15 minute sessions to put a wait, walk and sides on her although obviously not yet fully reliable. She is a very sensible young dog who is coming along beautifully in the paddock. An powerful outrun to die for and natural wide casting. With spooky sheep she adapts her positioning and style naturally to exert control and keep them on track. She won't back down or shut down, its not in her nature. Showing a bit of bite when needed. Just a pleasure to train and work.
Around home she is a very sweet dog who is very people orientated with a play drive that sometimes gets her in trouble, there are only so many soggy toys we like shoved in our faces but she is training us nicely. If she wants to play, this is how she initiates it. Her focus is just beautiful and like her dads lines no amount of training is enough for her so you have to know when to call it quits on her behalf. Sweet and happy around the house, all business in the paddock. Just how it should be.
