My name is Chris Jobe and I am the owner and trainer at Canine Solutions.


Border collies became an integral part of my life when I moved to Alberta 1979 and started ranching in 1994. I got my first border collie 'Tuck' soon after and have since devoted a good share of my time to training and trialing them.


In 1999, I entered my first sheepdog trial with a dog I trained myself and have had the "trial fever" ever since. I have been blessed to train with some of the best dog handlers in the world.


My goal is to produce, raise and train the best all-around working border collies. My dogs are selected for instinct and intensity to work while exhibiting a friendly, outgoing temperament and to maintain their focus when subjected to a variety of challenges.


I hold dual citizenship in Canada and the USA, am authorized to work in both countries.


Canine Solutions specializes in training and breeding border collies for ranch work, stockdog trials and canine wildlife management.
