Keep works all types of stock. She is very keen on cattle, hitting both heads and heels. She has a very classic heel hit, low and hard. She hits equally well on push out. Due to time constraints and litters, I have not competed with her past the started level. I do use her occasionally for chores on the farm, and she is especially useful when we need to re-teach the ram to respect a dog. My dogs are often handler impaired when trialing and training. I had a difficult time learning to read her, which delayed her advanced training. I have no doubt that with a different trainer she would be much further. Keep is very protective of the farm, but is an attention hog when elsewhere. She is an alpha bitch. Keep can be very silly. She will bring me a sock if I have not picked them up. She never chews them, she just brings them to me and wiggles all over. She quickly chills out in the house and is happy just hanging around.
