Sterling and Melanie Zarchikoff are relatively new to the stockdog world but you would never know it to see them in action. It is a joy to watch them trial.
Sterling has proven himself as a sire. He now has 3 litters on the ground who show great style and stock sense. Melanie is doing a superb job with Sterling, Cocoa and her younger dogs.

Melanie had only entered Sterling in two stockdog trials prior to heading to Albany, Oregon for the 2016 ASCA National Finals. She had taken him to a few conformation shows, rally and obedience as well. In Albany he did great under the pressure of traveling from Canada seeing so many dogs and the 7 full days of competition that included obedience, rally and stock for the MVA competition. Sterling is currelty campaining for Fianal to attend Greeley. He is currently qualified in all stock and seems to be doing well enough to hold on to a top 30 position to be invited to compete.
