Ollie herding video and pictures! :)

This weekend we went to a herding open house... we don't train here but thought it'd be fun to pop in a cheap herding lesson. This is only Ollie's third lesson so just the basics but how he loves it! It was also a rare chance for me to get some video and pictures, hope you enjoy.

I love watching him herd! He has such enthusiasm for it!

I hope you get back to lessons so we can chat about it! LOL

He is such a looker too.... stunning actually.

Thanks! He's finally learning how to pose for me.

I'm going to be finishing up some agility stuff but we should be getting back into herding in the next couple weeks, I CAN'T wait and hope to be trialing next year. Our biggest issue is just control, he goes deaf when he's in drive but as you saw in the video he was able to sit a couple times so all our at home training is paying off I think!

That is my issue as well. When the drive kicks in, she thinks she is on her own. We have been working on that while training in schutzhund so I knew we would have similar issues with herding. We are working on it, and she is actually better at capping herself around the livestock than around a sleeve! Go figure!

Thank you. Ollie LOVES herding... As soon as he's sees the sheep he turns into a barking crazy mess, at one point during the herding event he actually managed to jerk free of my grip and charged the corral barking like a mad man so yeah he likes it just a little.

And it is such a fun sport though not as easy as it looks, good luck to you guys!
