Understanding what is required of you and your dog, developing a working
relationship between the two of you, and being able to read the livestock is
not a quick process. Students are encouraged to observe other students and
their dogs working in class and are encouraged to read ALL the herding
information provided on this web site. As you progress you and your dog will
continue to be challenged by this sport. It is common for beginners to feel
quite lost and uncertain. Occasionally some dogs may seem initially
uninterested in the stock. But as you both grow in confidence and in your understanding of the game, the light goes on and the herding fun begins.
Please let me know if you want me to added to my herding list. I only use it for events or cancellation.
