Ulf Kintzel and the HGH

Simple question:
If you lived about 5 hours away from Ulf and his sheep farm, and had the opportunity to herd with your dog....would you?

Re: Ulf Kintzel and the HGH

No, he only evaluates and takes people on who are serious about it. I would love to try herding, but only for fun. Even if I had a dog that had the potential and talent to to HGH herding, I would not want to take up the space away from someone else who was serious about working and titling their dog.

If he just INSISTED that I was doint the world a disservice by not pursuing an HGH title with my super-secret-surprise-herding dog, I may consider it.

Re: Ulf Kintzel and the HGH

5 hrs each way even for Ulf might be a bit much for me, even though training with him would be awesome.........I suspect that if you were really serious about it you might be looking at making the trip more than once a week: I wouldn't have that kind of time. I've seen him in action on a DVD I have of the 1990 German National Herding Championship (HGH). He didn't win, Karl Fuller did, but you can tell he knows what he's doing!

Re: Ulf Kintzel and the HGH

I hear that Ulf and Karl are both spectacular, and we're just lucky enough to have Ulf in the states.

I'm only about an hour from a couple of the other sheep farms, but, you know

Re: Ulf Kintzel and the HGH

Jackie, I think you are a bit more than 5 hours from Ulf. I am 2-3 hours and I would have LOVED to get an HGH on Rayne (would have LOVED to have done it with KC) but for me to drive 6 hours round trip on a regular basis year round...in the Great Lakes winter......I can't commit to that. The other sheep farms are not much better drive in the winter and they are not large enough nor set up to really practice tending on.

Re: Ulf Kintzel and the HGH

Ulf won't even let me xD That said, I contacted Geary Loff today, and may be setting up an HIC for Delphi. They do AKC-C Course and HGH apparently.

From what I've read they also own the world's first HGH Beauceron

Re: Ulf Kintzel and the HGH

I spent about 6 months or so taking lessons with Ulf with my first GSD. This was in 2001 or 2002? I think. As others have said he will only do an instinct test if you are serious about training your dog. He is not one to spare anyone's feelings and will tell you the truth about your dog (NO sugarcoating), even if it hurts!
If I remember right he requires that you come every other week at the bare minumum, twice a week is best, once a week was fine.
I wish he was still in NJ, I would have loved to get an HGH with Kessy.
