Mad About BCs

Mad About Bcs

By Linda Husson

My name is Linda Husson and I live in northeast Pennsylvania. My
passion is my dogs…training them, competing with them, playing with
them, loving them, and enjoying their companionship.
I started this obsession in 1985 with my first dog, a Sheltie from a
pet store, and I quickly found it necessary to learn about dog training &
behavior, as I had no idea how to handle my new little problem child! My
neurotic puppy mill dog managed to earn the obedience title of Utility
Dog in AKC as well as in Canada, and she taught me so much.
Thank you, Kelly.
My next Sheltie came from a reputable breeder (Lesson #1), and he
was a once-in-a-lifetime dog. Teddie showed me a whole new level of
obedience competition, earning an AKC Obedience Trial Championship,
placing in many tournaments, and ranking amongst the Top 10 Obedience
Shelties in the country in his prime. After a long & successful career in
competitive Obedience, Teddie entered the sport of Agility at age 7,
earning multiple titles including the USDAA Master Agility Dog title, up
until his full retirement at age 12 1/2. He was a very special dog and I
am so privileged to have had him as my companion for 14 years.
Currently I own all Border Collies. Our primary interest is Agility, with
Flyball being our other addiction. Five of my Border Collies have earned
their USDAA Agility Dog Championships amongst other titles. They can
all be seen on these webpages.
I am not a breeder but have been fortunate in having some wonderful
breeders choose my dogs for stud, and I’m very proud of the pups that
Token & Dandy have sired.
Because of my dogs, I have traveled and made friends from all around
the world; my dogs have opened doors for me that I could never have
imagined in my wildest dreams. Crazy dog lady? Yes…lucky me 🙂Toss & Robin; Kelly & Teddie - 1998

  1. Cool! I just started obedience training with my two-month old goldie. We’re both new to it, but we’re enjoying it very much. Thanks for this inspiring article.

  2. Hi Linda. Looking forward to reading more updates. I have one of the pups Token sired…you should be proud. I met a person a few years back in Vermont, but who lives in the middle part of the country. He had a border collie as well. We talked, of course. Our border collies shared the same sire! We keep in touch to this day. Funny how life moves in circles.

Whatcha thinking? Gimme that! Grr! Grr!
