Herding for weak nerve dogs?
Hi, wonder if the herding experts or enthusiasts think it's a good idea to let a weak nerve dog learn how to herd just for fun or as a sport? Do you think it can help build confidence, like nosework or agility? Or it's more like protection sport where it's not good for weak nerve dogs?
My dog has good prey drive, loves to scent (but I don't want to do tracking). She is nervy but manageable. She's been curious about the cows on our hikes but I don't let her walk to them so she's learned to not go towards them but will look for a bit then get on scenting for stuff on the ground.
