Herding


Starts: October 15, 2017
Cost: $52.00 per session

Our facility is set up to train beginner, nursery, novice and open level dogs and their handlers. We have our own sheep and 3 pastures of different sizes plus a round pen allowing dogs with different levels of experience to develop their skills for herding trials or farm work.

We train all breeds of dogs and require the dogs to be at least 10 months old for females and 1 year for males.

All Herding lessons are private.
Available weekly: currently no wait lists, email for an appointment.
We also have weekend herding clinics for beginners and advanced. These are affordable one day workshops. Dates will be posted shortly.

Watch video This video shows Julie working with Tess, a 11-month border collie. The puppy is learning about gathering, holding pressure, flanking and driving. 

How to get started:

Contact us and make an appointment for instinct testing to see if your dog has the potential for success as a herding dog. The first session usually takes about 1 hour.

If your dog shows a keen desire to work stock you can book another session to start training. Subsequent sessions are approximately 35–40 minutes long.
