MACH UWP Belcroft In A Sweet Dream MXB MJB OF RN PD PTM

Strata, Katherine�s next dog, was a true change of pace from Tessie! He came to Katherine and Daniel from Belcroft-Majestyk Shelties in Maine. His sire, Striker, is a champion performance dog and many of his siblings have won top honors in agility.

Much like his father, Strata is an enthusiastic worker who loves to be playing as often as possible. He is a go-anywhere, do-anything dog who will eagerly work for food, toys, and praise. Everyone who meets him remarks on his personality � unlike many Shelties, Strata greets all he meets with his tail wagging, nudging them for attention. He is very much a social butterfly!

When not competing at a national level in agility, Strata enjoys herding his �big sister� Tessie, keeping an eye on his tennis ball collection, and helping his mother teach her group classes by acting as the �demo dog�. Despite his love for agility, Strata�s favorite task is helping to socialize the puppies in Katherine�s Puppy Kindergarten classes. He is a fun, gentle, and effective teacher with youngsters.

The above video is of Strata's 5th place in Performance Speed Jumping at the 2012 USDAA New England Regional Championships.
