Herding in Florida?

I have no clue where to even begin! I did some google searches and got nothing. I'd like to do some basic herding training/testing with my puppy. He seems to have a lot of natural herding drive. I'd love to do it just for fun!

He will be an ILP dog. The breeder never sent me papers, in spite of a signed contract and both parents being AKC registered. Not sure if that matters either.

Re: Herding in Florida?

Not sure where you are in FL but Sherry Lee is in St Cloud. I showed under her a couple years ago and she was helpful. I am pretty sure she does clinics, trials, and private lessons. Can't seem to find a website for her though.

I am about two and a half hours from there, but I'd be willing to go there to have my dog evaluated and to learn! I am truly CLUELESS!

Is the one near Morriston the man with the Sammies? If so, that's where I used to take Slider. He was knowledgable, we learned a lot. Wish I could have kept going, Slider LOVED herding the sheepies.

I don't think so. It is called Sheilen Farms, and I think he has Borders. But, I haven't been to him yet, we're going to start after the new year.

Cool - hope you post every so often about it. After I was left with a bad permanent limp after being rammed by 250 lb wethered ram (or whatever they're called) I stopped taking the Hooligans herding.
