Derek Fisher & Paddy Fanning interview
About Derek Fisher
From the local backyard trial to the Meeker Classic and USBCHA National Finals, Derek Fisher proves time and time again that age has no bearing on skill or talent. Determination and hard work is what makes him one of the most promising and up and coming handlers, trainers and clinicians in the United States. Derek started training as a result of purchasing some sheep for an FFA project. It wasn’t long before he recognised the value of a good dog and found Jim, an ambitious youngster and trained him to help on his flock of Suffolk ewes. This was the start of one of the most unique and successful careers in the current sheepdog world. Derek manages to ‘juggle’ his day job (hairdressing) with extensive travelling to trial and hold clinics throughout the US and overseas and this will be the first time he has visited or competed in the UK.
