Involved in dog training and grooming for more than a decade, Abby and her two Border Collies Skye and Leap currently compete in Agility, Flyball and Disc show classes.

The newest addition to Abby’s family is Hope, a Border Collie puppy who enjoys a good wrestle/play session with any taker.
The entire Decadent Dogs staff loves Gilligan, but he and Janet and he have a special bond. It might be influenced by the number of treats and pettings Janet gives him.
