I'm from the midwest and own two ESS. They both show and train in obedience, agility, rally, and Jrs/conformation. We also do a little hunt training and we're starting to get into tracking. Buzz: B/W 8 year old ESS from a BYB Bailey: B/W 6 year old ESS (direct field/show cross) And I show/train a labby for some family friends...
