My trainer (Nancy Obermark) prefers ZERO obedience training before starting herding. Herding dogs need to be able to think, and obedience requires no thought. I started my first herding dog at 6 months, my second at almost 2 years and have just started my new pup at 3 1/2 months. Wish I had started the first one sooner. She is the best behaved young dog I have now with ZERO obedience training still. Only my almost 9 year old is better behaved.
She starts her BCs at 8 weeks, and I can attest that they are AMAZING.
