Herding PA/MD/VA

Anyone know of a place that teaches the tending style of herding? I have found a few, but they lean more towards Border Collies and that style.

I would like to expose my pup to sheep first. But would like to know if its something that is available in my area.

I can only find one guy, in NJ.

That's it....Geary Loff at the HGH club in NJ....phgsd on this board trains with him....we co-own a female in training right now....the only other place is in the fingerlakes region of NY....that is Ulf Kinzell....

these are the only two herding clubs for tending style for GSDs in the US

Yeah I found and googled him. Over 4.5 hours away and requires at least a 2x a month commitment.

I may be better able to find someone that does a C test, AKC.

Thanks Lee!!!

There are only two people in my area (Western PA) that teach herding. They both teach A/B course, they both own German Shepherd Dogs, so are familiar with their herding style...but they do not teach C course.

Both trainers are an hour and a half away from me.

Julie Degen is in the northern Virginia area and does lots of AKC C-course training and she gives very good lessons.

I believe they are in eastern PA, but I have trialed out there and they have great sheep. They train both C and A course for AKC.

Thanks all. I contacted Julie and she emailed my right back. Seems great. Gonna schedule my boy fur sometime next week hopefully to test him on sheep. Looking forward to it.

Cannot believe how hard it is to find someone who does tending style within a 4 hr drive. I don't mind driving, but 4 hours each way on a weekly basis is too much even for me.

I also found a woman who teaches the " large flock" test for the AHBA. Dies anyone understand the difference? I don't think that it is tending style.

Thanks again!!
