Hold onto your seat – the competition is fierce - top sheepdog handlers compete in CSJ’s brand new 4 part film series starting 14th November on

The four episodes span ten weeks and feature nine of the UK’s top sheepdog handlers and dogs. Each uses their skills and intelligence to compete over a challenging course to be the first to win the title ‘A Way with Dogs’ Champion.

Viewers will be able to see clearly how the experts handle their dogs and hear full commentary from international judge and handler, Mike Northwood and presenter Bryony Billson at

The nine top handlers compete over a tricky course in the Clwydian Hills of North Wales at the home of the late H Glyn Jones, himself a former International Supreme Sheepdog Champion and 5 times winner of the Brace Competition on ‘One Man & His Dog’.

The competition will be judged by Aled Owen, four times winner of the International Supreme Championship and two times World Trials Champion and the handlers include a full time shepherd, Medwyn Evans, this year’s Welsh National Champion, farmers including the ‘Master’ handler Gwyn Jones (3 x International Supreme Champion), as well as a Stock Buyer, a retired head teacher/OFSTED Inspector and a milk retailer.

CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds founder, Ceri Rundle (H Glyn Jones’s daughter), is a renowned sheepdog handler herself,having been the first lady to qualify for the Welsh National Team with her homebred dog, Bwlch Hemp in 1996, later earning two further national ‘caps’ and competing in the World Trials in Ireland in 2005.

She was the first lady to be elected on to the Panel of National Judges for Wales which has allowed her to judge in USA, Europe and Scandinavia and she was also honoured to become Chair of the North Wales Sheepdog Society in the early '90s.

Ceri now spends most of her time promoting CSJ’s feed, herbs and treats for dogs but tries to find time to train and trial her young dogs and continues to develop her world famous Moel line of Border Collies (a continuation of her parents famous 'Bwlch' line).

She says, “We wanted to portray the true skills of the handler and the dog, enabling the viewer to see the straight lines to and through the hurdles and the tight turns …. which is the aim of the handler.   Our films will show this very clearly  - allowing the viewer to understand what is going on and how the run is judged.”

Filmed against a stunning backdrop the action culminates in a nail-biting final film available on Boxing Day - the four programmes will be released on: Monday 14th November; Monday 28th November; Monday 12th December; Monday 26th December.
