Passed Instinct Herding Test

Max passed his Herding Instinct Test!!! The instructor is 10 minutes away from our house and will start lessons next week!!! Our instructor said Max did great with lots of natural instinct and drive and learns very quick. Max did try to get to close to the sheep he got a lot light tap with the flag pole- it also makes a weird noise. The first time he got reprimanded he checked in with me like is this okay? It was very interesting to watch Max piece things together and figure things out. It was a very hot day. The first part was walking around the perimeter with Max then getting closer to the sheep on long lead then loose. One sheep strayed once in the beginning then that was it.
I did get some on video with Max and the instructor -it was very exciting to watch and lots of fun!

Yes thanks never knew how exciting sheepherding can be. After a few lessons then we will move into the big field. She also is an agility trainer so my daughter is starting with her chihuahua.

Thank you! There were a few people watching with their dogs and said it was the best herding evaluation they have seen. An activity for us to do for fun and strengthen his training. I just don't want to get run over by any sheep-the instructor makes it look easy!!!
