Herding Lessons & Rates

 

 

NOTE:  As of 5/2008, due to our very heavy schedule with other aspects of our training business, Tammie is not available for herding lessons or evaluations.  Please check back in the future to see when we may be able to offer herding lessons, again.

Lessons

 
  Tammie, an AHBA judge, has offered lessons and instinct evaluations for over 10 years  
  Instruction is focused on creating the most natural working stock dog, possible  
  Attention is placed on teaching the handler about herding, livestock and managing a dog  
  Students are encouraged to "do chores" with their dogs, to develop a "thinking" partner  
  Students can take full advantage of the facilities, working in any of the many pens, arenas and large fields  
  Lessons are scheduled on an individual basis and can be set up on weekdays or Saturdays (although most Saturdays are book well in advance or are dedicated to our Workshops and Pet First Aid/ CPR classes)
