Maralynn Posted September 25, 2006 Report Share Posted September 25, 2006 This past weekend I obtained a BC who will turn 2 in December. Kip is pretty much a blank slate right now. The person I got him from had him out on sheep about 3 times. Once when I was there. He looked really nice, had great instinct and balance. My sheep can be a bit pushy with a dog. They respect Missy pretty well, but she is also quite confident around them, so she won't take any flack from them even if they try to push. Tonight I put 4 of the easiest sheep in the barnyard (50 ft square), and went in with Kip. He moved them around fairly well, but they wanted to push him a bit. I had him in there about 2 min and ended it on a good note. And then Miss brought them into the barn. The minute she got out there they turned into very respectful sheep again. I'm trying to figure out if theres a better way to get him going on my sheep? Or should I skip it and take him to a trainer with some really dog-broke sheep while he's building his confidence?
