Frieda tried herding yesterday ....

She wants to know where this activity has been all her life .

Here is a video clip with Frieda and my daughter working on their first day of herding - both of my girls (human and dog) enjoyed themselves immensely, and I am very proud of them.

She looked like she was having a blast. Good day for it as well.

They both did a great job! The video of our first lesson was a lot more chaotic.

I was shocked at Frieda's degree of self control around the sheep, since in real life she has big big problems with impulse control. I was also surprised at how well she worked for Madeline, and actually by how well Madeline worked with her. Frieda's self control actually spilled over outside of the pen, since she did not want to bark, lunge, or act crazy when she saw the other dogs that were around. I think we might actually continue herding! The only drawback is that the facility is way the heck up there in Dawsonville, which is 60 miles from where I live. I can always hope that gas prices will drop, right?

Make a day of it!! After herding stop by some of the creeks that are in the area. Tons of them She can play, wade and some may be deep enough for her to swim.
