Sheep

In 2017, Eo finally got her lifelong wish: her own sheep ☺ She had been helping out on a local farm for a number of years, but her own sheep, that's a dream come true.

We have a small flock of Hebrideans which are very nice sheep to work: they are relatively small and move well for dogs, so are good for starting young dogs off on. We have used both a round pen setup for starting young dogs and having an older dog (Dream's favourite job!) help by showing the youngster what to do.

Very occasionally, we do herding training sessions at our field in Derbyshire (close to Sheffield), though we have mainly reserved these for dogs of our own breeding. Hopefully there'll be slightly more availability in 2019, and perhaps even the odd taster session!

If you would like to be kept informed about our next taster session, please get in touch.
