The Shepherds Barn is part of the Longton family farm at Lee End, and Thomas Longton maintains the barn plus carries on the Longton family tradition of training, working and trialling his trained sheepdogs.
I'm a professional dog trainer, It's magical to see the dogs do what they are really meant to do. With Thomas I get a chance to learn how to control things that are natural.
