I believe there was a club up in the northwest corner, Cornwall area, but I'm not sure if they're still around...

Not sure how up to date these links are. (scroll down pat the banners) NE Trainers

Depending on where you are in CT you might want to check the surrounding states too.

I just contacted her the other day about taking Piper to her. I thought she was in MA? Didn't double check because Piper can't go until she's 18 months but I'm pretty sure our breeder said she's somewhere near Brookfield MA. (maybe that's where she trains?)

I believe that is where she trains..I have been to Meadowbrook Farm, she 'used' to have gsd's but now has aussie/border collies..not a bad trainer, very tough tho, and it wasn't a good experience for my aussie who is a marshmellow but loves to herd.

I know Tenley Dexter is a fabulous trainer, but not sure if she does it anymore?

I took Piper to Diane Menard at Black Birch Farm in Sturbridge when she was really young just to see how she would react to the sheep. She was nice enough but I wanted to try tending. I hope SS isn't too tough, I'm kind of a marshmallow too!!

Thanks for the recommendations. We are on "the list" for a Sequoyah puppy which we hope to have June 2014. Such a long wait....Anyway, I would like to try several different activities with the dog to see what he/she excels at. Herding will be a good energy draining activity for the dog. We have no intentions of doing anything competitive with it...this will be just for fun.

I am thinking of giving herding a try too. Am in Ct....will try some of the names listed here. I could also go into NY or Ma....Any recommendations?

Curious if this would be a good sport for a reactive dog?
