I’m Dorien, the face behind Drovers Road. I was introduced to the aussies in 2007 when Blizz came in to my life. Since then I am hooked on aussies and on herding. Blizz is my first off almost everything. She opened my eyes.
Since I was a child I had a love for animals. But because we’ve moved a lot, we never had the chance of having animals. This changed when I did stand in the door with a little kitten in my hands. Way to small to be away from her mother. We had found the nest, this was in Africa and there they had the chance of being the meal of a snake, so we’ve took them. It were four of them, we’ve split them along friends and I had the only tortie colored girl. I was just 8 years at this time. This beautiful cat is 20 years old and still with us living with my mom.
When we came back to the Netherlands Cato came into our life. Our first family dog. I was just 10 years old. I did a lot with Cato, training, walking and cuddling. Sadly Cato isn’t with us any more.
In 2012 I graduated my study homeopathy for animals at the school for homeopathy. My purpose is to start my one practice one day.
I teach agility and used to teach herding. I trial in both. Only ASCA herding, since we don’t have FCI herding in the Netherlands. I have no dog for the agility trials at the moment but as soon as Keevah is ready we will be trialing too again in agility.
