Herding Types

I prefer C course or tending. Here in Oreogn the closest place to herd is 3 hours away and they offer all styles. I have not done any as that is just too far.

I am moving to Oklahoma in about 3 weeks and was referred to a club only 90 minutes from where I will live. I might try to get invloved if Havoc shows interest and I can figure it out.

Unfortunately this club (4 corners herding association) only offers A and B course training. Of these two which is the best for a GSD?

Thanks.

Kathy

Re: Herding Types

Hi Kathy, I believe the B course is similar to how the AHBA courses are set up. I have trialed Tanner at AHBA events and done very well, even competing against BC's.
If Havoc is anything like Tanner on sheep, you will see tons of interest and ability.
It is totally addictive and an absolute blast.

Re: Herding Types

We are currently doing Course A herding...I believe our trainer wants to make sure we can fully control the sheep in the arena before moving us to an open field where the sheep can run off without having the fence to help out (and we need a bigger out run!!!). Either one you decide - you can get your HT and PT before going to course work (and before deciding for that matter).

I really enjoyed working on the HRD Courses (Herding Ranch Dog, AHBA trials).

I hope one day to try large flock...I know my trainer is starting to occasionally hold AHBA large flock trials.

Re: Herding Types

No...we haven't worked our dogs together. There really isn't a venue for that - I mean, trials aren't done with two dogs, so we don't want to use up our practice time "just for fun" - herding is so freakin' expensive!!!!

Our trainer has talked to us about it though - and she thinks that both our dogs would both be the same "type" of dog (I can't spell the names she said).

LOL! Now, Kathy! He never actually ingested them. He just rolled around on the ground with one (or two) and tasted them a little!

Re: Herding Types

LOL Kathy - I think we all worry about that!

I just knew Willow would turn Psycho and try to eat the sheep! It didn't help that the dog before her 2nd run for her HIC actually did grip the sheep and the judge and owner couldn't get him off. FINALLY they did and the sheep's wool protected it from the dog, but I was afraid Willow would think it just looked so fun(!) and do it too. She didn't.

Have you joined the Tending Group on Yahoo? I joined it after reading the Review article...
