Herding for Shadow

I am just starting the search. I just E-mailed a farm in Atchison Kansas.

Is there anyone on here that has used a training place in Missouri or Kansas?

Can Shadow just go try this for fun? I do not own a farm.

Re: Herding for Shadow

Nope not one in Atchison, OR the E-mail was bad. I will try to goggle the farm name.

Re: Herding for Shadow

Just remembered this thread.

I have no idea where this is, will call them though.

I was looking on midwestherding/trainers.

Re: Herding for Shadow

The link below has a description of what is typically meant by "strong-eyed" vs. "loose-eyed" about half-way down the page. Most herding trainers offer an "instict test", where they will assess your dog's natural ability/reaction to stock.
