Amanda Milliken in conversation

In July 2020, Amanda Milliken sat down for an intimate interview about her life passion - the working Border Collie.

Hear this accomplished competitor, breeder and trainer talk about how she got started, the early days of trialing in Ontario, managing a sheep flock for dog training, the evolution of the Kingston Sheep Dog Trials and the fierce battle to preserve the working Border Collie in Canada. 

Watch as she trains her young dog and shares her approach to creating the partnership that has made her a winner over and over again. 

The film is packed with gems for sheep doggers of all levels!
