I would love this info too. I don't know of any place near the metro. There is herding around Elk City and Ponca City.

Yeah I get so frustrated finding anything . I was excited moving here but it seems must do just agility training.
I will email the GSD club in OKC to see if they know otherwise I will ask a few feed stores if they know of someone.

otherwise I am getting some ducks and do the training myself! hahaha

I found a lady in north OKC. Her name is Susan Abrams at Trio Farms. I am looking into getting my 2 GSD's started in herding. I don't know anything about herding or this lady but you can contact her and talk to her.

You can start by going to AKC.org [American Kennel Club] and do a search for herding trials in OK. You'll get a list of the trials, clinics, instinct test dates and herding clubs. We've been herding for close to a year and we love it!

There are 2 herding instinct tests in Claremore, OK on Saturday March 31, in conjunction with the AKC all breed show. Ducks, sheep, cattle.

I'll be entering my 2 GSDs in the show, so I'll be there! I'm hoping I get the time to go watch the herding. I'd love to see how my girls would do, but all three of us are completely clueless... I'm pretty sure neither one of them has ever laid eyes on a sheep, a duck or a cow. Well, that's pretty sad!

Oh that is cool. Do you have a link to the information? One of my GSD's got in a little pin with some sheep and she went crazy. She loved it but she tried to nip the sheep. My other GSD hasn't tried it yet and I think he would be amazing at it.

The akc.org website will have all the info- just go to the herding tab and select the state. It's a blast! You should definitely go. Don't worry, they won't let your dog injure the sheep

I'm resurrecting this thread.

I am thinking about doing the herding instinct tests at the Claremore show in 2 weeks with both my girls. We'll be there for conformation, so why not!

According to the Claremore Kennel Club website, you must pass two tests to get the AKC certificate? So I assume I would need to enter both girls for both tests (I can see the entry fees adding up...$$$)

Can some one tell me what to expect? I am so clueless.

Look up Austerlitz German Shepherd Dogs....Susanne Shelton should be able to give you some information on the testing...she is the breeder I purchased by bitch from 6 yrs ago....she is very knowledgeable and active in the breed. She has her own website and is on Facebook also.
