Custom Training and Handling

MacRae Stockdogs takes dogs in for training as well as competes with customer dogs at trials. Customer dogs are trained in the fall and winter, usually beginning in October through until February. Dogs of all levels are accepted and are trained by the month, depending on the desired result and the dogs abilities.

Additionally, we compete with customer dogs at trials. Alasdair has done this for a number of years, most notably winning open trials and the USBCHA National Finals three times with Judy Aycock’s Bill. This year Alasdair competed in open with Eileen Stineman’s Don and Star and captured his 8th USBCHA National Finals Championship in Klamath Falls, Oregon with Star.

Alasdair won numerous open trials with both dogs this year including a first place wins at Muddy Paws SDT, Hanley’s SDT, Bluegrass, Fort Wayne SDT, Bloomfield, WWSDA 21st Annual Trial, Crook & Whistle and L & M SDT. We also trial customer dogs in the nursery as well as pro-novice and ranch classes.
