About Us

John Holman is from Clay Center, NE where he is employed by the USDA. John Holman began training stockdogs in 1980 when he was hired as sheep herdsman for Mississippi State University. John is known for his DOG4EWE Border Collies, but has had extensive experience with Bearded Collies, Australian Cattle Dogs, Bouviers, Shelties, Corgis, Puliks and Belgians. He is also a licensed AKC, AHBA and USBCHA judge.

In recent open competitions John has had wins at the Iowa State Fair, Nebraska State Fair and the National Western Stock Show. In 2003 John placed 8th and 10th with his dogs Moo and Trim at the USBCHA cattle finals. In 2005 John and Mick won the second go-around with a perfect score of 90,  in 2010 John and Lee were 4th in the Nursery class, and in 2013 John and Roy took 4th in the Nursery finals! In AKC competition, John has won over 65 HITs and RHITs with his dogs. He has also campaigned dogs to 7 Open and 4 Pro-Novice High Point Dog of the Year awards with the Nebraska Stock Dog Association.

DOG4EWE Border Collies are the product of over 30 years of work and 6 generations of selective breeding. They have enough power for tough cattle and are very biddable at the same time. DOG4EWE Border Collies are used successfully as ranch, trial, agility and obedience dogs all over the US and Canada. John is very grateful to all those that have helped him over the years. He couldn’t have been this successful without the support of his family and friends in the stockdog community!
