Roy Standen and Paul Griffiths from Sussex

Roy Standen was a shepherd in Sussex during the 1960s. He had connections with the Sussex Sheep Dog Society and was a popular trialler across the south.


His name in sheepdogs lives on with his grandson, Paul Griffiths, who has this year (2018) registered the prefix Standen. The first of Paul's dogs to carry this prefix is Roy, who he bred from his own unregistered bitch Mossie to John Marsh's Mick. Roy was born in 2015 and Paul has registered him on merit this year. Paul has bred a number of unregistered dogs which have all been useful on the trials field and are key to his work on the South Downs. Paul's dogs are primarily for work but he has had success in recent years. This winter Paul and Roy were second in the South East Winter Championship nursery aggregate having won three trials and placed 2nd five times.
