Would 9 years old be considered too old to begin herding? The dog in question is physically fit, good recent blood work/physical exam and can still go all day without issue.
I'm proud of you. I'm too old to learn new tricks without hurting myself. :grin2:
This place is new to our area, they've only been here for a couple years I think. From what I'm getting he brings in people for seminars/workshops and that sort of thing. Mostly border collies, but he welcomes all herding breeds.If you have the time and opportunity, I'd say go for it! If it seems like too much for the dog, you could always stop or scale back. I always thought herding looked fun, but have never been able to find any opportunities in my area. If you try it, take some pictures, and share them with us!
