Taff is a very biddable, very natural worker with both pace and push. He wants to please but will take pressure without a meltdown. Light, heavy and confrontational sheep all respond quietly yet unquestionably to Taff's calm authority. He delights judges from both sides of the pond with his all business way with sheep. Taff has a solid, unflappable temperament, is good with dogs and people, and is very loyal. He has a well-balanced structure, with moderate front and rear angulation and overall strength.
