Herding


Starts: Saturday September 7, 9 – 10:30 am
Duration: 6 weeks
Cost: $210.00
Location: 1070 wain Road
Limited to 6 students

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.

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.

Contact us for more information at 250-882-4132 or juliecarter@shaw.ca or fill out the enrolment form below and someone from our staff will be in touch shortly.
