VIDEO. Mediterranean Agriculture Show in Villeveyrac: in the footsteps of Guy Calazel, passionate shepherd and dog trainer

Guy Calazel entretient un lien fort avec Léo, son border collie. Midi Libre – SYLVIE CAMBON

Dresseur de chien à Quissac, Guy Calazel est présent ce samedi à Villeveyrac, pour le Salon des Agricultures Méditerranéennes.

The dog obeys without blinking, and with the precision of a goldsmith, to the sound of his whistle. The sheep follow, under the orders of Léo du Mont Kerchouan, the name of the border collie, faithful friend of Guy Calazel. The dog trainer demonstrates his work this Saturday, during the first Salon des Agricultures Méditerranéennes, organized in Villeveyrac by Midi Libre.

Located in Quissac (Gard), Guy Calazel comes from a family "known for its gifts towards animals". He trained his first dog, a German Shepherd, at the age of 16. His father was a hunter and owned "a large number of dogs". Easily enough to fuel, for Guy Calazel, a passion for these four-legged companions.

Also a shepherd, owner of 80 sheep

For several years, he has specialized in the training of herding dogs. At the Salon, we see Léo at work with sheep and geese. The man who is also a shepherd, at the head of 80 head of cattle, gives lessons to trainers in training. "One of my students was French dressage champion in 2022", he emphasizes, himself several time medalist in dressage competitions.

"I love the bond with the animal, the complicity and the limitless love of the dog for its master"

Passionate about his animals, he would not trade the pleasure of passing on this authentic know-how to visitors for anything in the world. "What I like most is this bond with the animal, the complicity that takes hold, the love without limit of the dog for its master." A love and loyalty that are evident in the aisles of the Salon.
