This young fella goes by the name of Ozzy Nixon born in Dubbo with a neurological disorder called Cerebral Palsy as well as being completely deaf, Ozzy got Cochlear implants to help with his hearing at just 3 months old. With many trips to and from Sydney, doctors told Ozzy’s parents he would never be able to walk.

Fast forward to now, Ozzy is 16 years old the type of boy that lights up a room, a real achiever and very persistant in everything he sets his mind to, from motorbike riding to gun licences, boat licences, drivers licence (L’s), owning his own cattle and now training his own working dog.

Ozzy has purchased his own collie dog a little dog he named Maggie. He wanted to find someone who would be able to help him work stock.

He spent a lot of time on google researching and found Mick Hudson. He asked his mum “can you please ring Mick Hudson I would really like to do something with Mick” They got onto Mick and he was happy to help Ozzy train little Maggie.

Ozzy went and brought Micks Online training Program and began training, Ozzy says “it’s the best part of my day going out and training Maggie every day after school”

Yesterday Ozzy and his father John went out for a private lesson where Ozzy learned how to put side commands on Maggie and with a little guidance he picked it up really quickly.

Ozzy’s dream - “I want to get Maggie good enough that we can go in a show” It may inspire other kids/adults with disabilities and show them that dog training is an inclusive sport.

Ozzy feeds Maggie Hypro premium to make sure he gets the best from her while they train everyday. We look forward to seeing Ozzy and Maggie continue their training.

Mick feels that the future in training is virtual lessons, it gives you the opportunity to be able to learn right from your lounge room, proven success and it works better than private lessons as you can play it over and over without forgetting what you learned.

Meet a true trial legend, Pip Hudson! 👋🏼

Pip Hudson was born into a family legacy of bushmen and dog handlers, so it’s no surprise that he went on to continue a legacy of his own within the sheepdog world.

The Hudson family now boasts 5 generations of sheepdog handlers which is a feat not many could match.

Pip himself was the third generation with his mother being a very well-known three sheep trial judge and his father a handler.

Nice article about Pip Hudson

I met this fella about 37 years ago and his dog peed on my leg !! We’ve been friends ever since 😂 this week I watched him at Koroit where he talked to every person - those he knew and those he didn’t - he helped people, gave advice, explained the process - all the time laughing and joking - it made me realize what an asset he is to the sport of Sheep Dog Trialling - he’s a bit older now but he told me this morning he still loves it because the people are great but sheep are still bastards 😂 when I first started going out with Gary he made me feel so welcome - just imagine how many people he has done that for - he’s a legend that’s for sure but he still owes me a pair of black stockings where the dog got me 😂 Angie x
