Trainers - PA Northern Tier/NY Southern Tier?

Jax was introduced to goats this weekend and had a grand ole time. Are there any trainers in this area?

Western NY Herding Yeah I know you are in the East but there are a couple out that way listed too. If I were closer though I would LOVE to go to Raspberry Ridge which is on that side of PA.

Re: Trainers - PA Northern Tier/NY Southern Tier?

You are very welcome. The two in NY state I would definitely contact them before you go and check on their experience working with GSD. They both tend to be more BC and Aussie which is a different herding style than GSD's go naturally. While Raspberry Ridge has mainly Border Collies from what I understand they seem to understand that GSD work differently and they use their skills instead of making them try to fit into a BC/Aussie style. Might be work the extra drive. We had a mini board meet up at Wind Over Woods in Conesus, NY and I was VERY happy with the way she handled all of my Sheps and the folks that went with me were please as well (I believe).

Re: Trainers - PA Northern Tier/NY Southern Tier?

I know absolutley nothing about herding. Sometimes I think she does agility for me and not because she wants too. Are there any websites that have helpful information?

When they email me back I'll ask about her GSD experience? Is there anything specific I should ask?

She actually has a picture of a rottie on there. Are they herding dogs?

Yes, Rotties are actually a herding AND draft (working) dog.

I would simply ask if they have any experience working with tending type dogs like German Shepherds.

Sounds like Ithaca is more equipped for beginners? I sent an email but the website says it's better to call her.
