I pay $25 for a lesson, $10 to rent the stock if I work on my own. The other place I will be going I am not sure what she charges for lessons but I think stock rental is the same.
We haven't gone yet, but we're going for our first lesson at the new place tonight (if the weather holds, anyway). The place we're going to is Bedlamb Bestiary (http://www.bedlambbestiary.com/), in Seaford.Quote:Where did you end up going Historian?
We go to her Escondido facility!Originally Posted By: LvmyGSDThere IS sheep herding in Los Angeles! Check out K9 Action Sports on the Web. The owner is Terry Parrish. She's based out of Escondido but comes up to L.A. on Sundays and does 1/2 hr. private lessons.
I so know what you mean by that - I have the same problem. I keep tripping over sheep, forgetting what direction I'm supposed to go in, and so on. *laughs*Quote:The dog has a lot of natural instinct. I, apparently, don't.
I wish we were there. We've had to take some time off due to my health. We are going to be starting up again soon (we actually went several weeks ago, but then my DH went out of town and now my parents are here) and hope to trial this fall. Right now, it is just so hot and hard to get out there and train (plus gas...yikes! Escondido is 45min from us).Originally Posted By: LvmyGSDWere you at the practice trial in March? We were the ones with the GSD that wouldn't stop barking! We were just getting started then and really didn't do very well. The dog has a lot of natural instinct. I, apparently, don't. But we're moving along, and we're planning to take the Herding Test in the fall. Maybe I'll see you at one of the practices trials!
