Congrats! I do herding as my primary sport.... doesn't seem to be too popular on this board, people are really missing out! We started herding when my pup was 6 months old and he is a natural, kept the flock together, no fear and responded well to the stick and yes, he is half WGSL half WGWL.
It is a lot harder then it looks right?
Good luck to you guys and have lots of fun!
