Herding Assessments & Training

You too can learn to herd sheep. Have one of our herding trainers can assess your dog to see if it is suitable to work sheep and then you can schedule training classes to prepare for novice trials. Assessments and lessons are Saturdays, weather permitting, by appointment.  The length of the assessment and training will depend on the dog so that the session ends on a positive note. We also suggest that you watch the lessons before and/or after yours as you can learn from other dogs and handlers. In addition to weather concerns, assessments and classes are cancelled some Saturdays due to lambing and trial conflicts.

To schedule an assessment or class, contact Maurene Hillen at spicylambfarm@gmail.com
