Remember to watch the Weather!

Well, its summertime!  Woohoo!
Unfortunately that means the heat and humidity are back.....  So we need to watch the weather as we schedule lessons.  In general, if the heat index is gonna be above 100 then we’ll most likely cancel lessons - so watch this website and i’ll try to keep it updated.  

For First Timers

Please make sure your dog is in good health and not excessively overweight. Bring a buckle collar for your dog. All dogs must be leashed - no flexi's please! Also, please clean up after your dogs.

I’ve discovered that students generally have a better learning experience if we schedule appointments for herding instead of just dropping in. You will probably be here about 2 hours (more for multiple dogs). You are always welcome to come early or stay late and watch others work. It can be time well spent and very educational! 

On Your First Visit

On your first visit to the farm, we will test your dog for herding instinct. I will take your dog in and work the dog for 10-15 minutes depending on what the dog does. Once we know what your dog understands about herding, then we'll formulate a plan for its education.  Herding is a very mentally exhausting sport for your dog, and we have found that one time on your first visit is best. After the first visit then your dog will most likely work twice.
