K9freek Posted December 1, 2009 Report Share Posted December 1, 2009 I have an opportunity to use some sheep this winter and next spring/summer that have not been dog-broke. I currently drive 8 hours roundtrip to go herding and can only manage it twice monthly. That is why this seems tempting to me...yet I do not want to if it will somehow not be good for my dogs. Their training with me not having much "stock sense" is already behind the eight ball! The owner of the sheep has dogs, used to have Border Collies she did herding with but these particular sheep have not been worked by dogs and are wary of humans they do not know. Where would I even start with this? Any ideas would be helpful. My dog is an eight year old seasoned dog who is very gentle with livestock. My other dog is a pushy little girl who is still learning that sheep should not fly! Thanks in advance for any info. I wanted to go atleast see the sheep this coming weekend without a dog if necessary to start. M. Roland Virginia, MN Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
