MacRae Sheepdogs, Patricia and Alasdair MacRae

Our passion is to increase the mutual understanding between handlers and their dogs, making training more enjoyable for both, and helping dogs reach their full potential.

Alasdair won the coveted Supreme in 1993 with the legendary Nan; he also won  12 US National Championships, the Scottish National and holds the record for the most points ever attained on BBC’s esteemed, “One Man and His Dog”. He is by far, the most accomplished handler in North America. I  attended my first trial novice trial in 2002 and won the US National in 2012. Our lives have been immeasurably enriched through the journey with our dogs.

In 2014 , we launched, MacRae Way Online SheepdogTraining Courses  to make our intuitive, positive training methodology accessible to handlers throughout the world.

We are excited about the upcoming release of our Training Academy, a platform for learning and sharing information with our members, that includes videos, articles, and podcasts and will augment our courses. Watch a Preview Video of our Training Academy.  Learn more  about our on-line offerings at our dedicated site, The MacRae Way.

In addition to sharing our knowledge through online training and remote lessons, we also trial across the U.S. and provide lessons and clinics.
