Herding trainers in SW Michigan?

I've found a few on sites between here and GR or Lansing that I've emailed to no avail, but I've been wanting to get Frag into it since spring since he's out of agility for a while... Does anyone know of any within a hour or so drive from Kalamazoo that has a good reputation? I'll be taking my puppy there next spring also, and I really don't want to have to drive a few hours to the breeder's to herd... I just don't have the time for it.

Thanks in advance!

Sharon Woolman is the one I know of, in the GR area.


This list may be outdated, but there are possibly contacts within the contacts. Herding Trainers

I tried contacting Sharon about a month ago, and didn't hear back from her.

Did you check on the AKC website for herding trials in your area? They'll give the name of the club holding the trials with all their info

No Stosh, I did not. That's a good idea though, I will try that next.

& thanks for the link Jane, I'm going to check into that now as well.

That's weird, Sharon is usually good about getting back though I know she recently had some surgeries. She is on Facebook too and I've used that to contact her.

Maybe I'll send another email and find her on facebook and friend her then. My email may have always slipped through the cracks.
