Sheep Herding Lessons

Herding lessons are 30 minute, private sessions where we train YOU to work your own dog. You will be taught how to use appropriate cues and your body to encourage your dog to work sheep properly. Sheep behavior is explained to provide a better understanding of WHY you and your dog have to work a particular way. Instruction is tailored to the breed of the dog, as loose-eyed dogs work differently than strong-eyed dogs. Lessons are by appointment only.

Our expertise at Action K9 Sports is in preparing clients and their dogs for competition. We have a strong, proven history of champion dogs and owners across all types of competitions and levels (see our Brags Page). Competition is not mandatory, but it's FUN so we encourage all of our students to participate.

Instinct tests are offered year-round and provide a basis for evaluating the herding ability of individual dogs before lessons begin. See our Getting Started Page for more information about how to start herding with your dog!

Sheep Herding Example

Classes are individual, private lessons taught in pens, arenas and open fields. The enclosure and level of instruction depend on you and your dog's abilities. As you progress with your dog, we move you into bigger arenas and more challenging situations. Bring your dog out to see just how much fun it is!
