Re: i'm thinking of herding...
I'm just a beginner at this myself, so I'm no expert. But I'd think it's someting you could start as early as 6 months or so. The commands for herding are like teaching/learning any other commands (except with the distraction of sheep). So when their little minds are in the "soaking it up" stage, they can learn herding as well as anything else.
You start out training the dog on a long lead, so even if they don't have great reacall, they're not going to run off or eat the sheep...you can grab the lead and reel them in.
