Mike Horgan

Vice President

Vice President Mike Hogan lives in Southeast Florida and is the owner of Draxen Farms, where he keeps a small flock of sheep and ducks and offers all breed herding dog training lessons. Mike has hosted Herding Trials sanctioned by the American Kennel Club and the United States Border Collie Handlers’ Association.

Mike started his professional career in dogs in 1998 with his Rottweiler, Drax, and they went on to earn a national ranking in three levels of Obedience with multiple High in Trials and a Conformation Championship. Mike and Drax competed in Herding as well. His Rottweiler, Driver, was a very accomplished Tracking Dog, who can be seen in the May, 2008, Dog Fancy Magazine, tracking at the Rottweiler Nationals. In 2005, Mike got his first Border Collie, Liam, and of course a very serious “herding bug” and the rest was history! He has trained and titled multiple AKC Herding Champions and received multiple Herding High in Trials with both his own Border Collies and with his clients’ dogs.

Mike has been a long-time member of the Central Florida Herding Club and currently serves on its Board as Vice President. Mike is a founding member of the Border Collie Club USA (BCCUSA) where he earnestly serves his fellow Club members, while promoting the Border Collie in the sport of Herding. Mike believes in the promotion and recognition of Club member accomplishments in all venues across the USA.
