Not only did Jess win the AKC Nationals with her Border Collie Hallelujah within a year of her pandemic litter, but Perry also won Westminster for the second time with her very special boy Verb. Verb happens to be Lu’s father, so ‘2021 Dog of the Year’ quickly evolved into “Dogs of the Year.” How have Jess and Perry’s lives looked the last few years? What is it like doing dogs and life and business 24-7? Why should we be more concerned about dog training in dog sports than physical ability?
