geonni banner Posted January 3, 2012 Report Share Posted January 3, 2012 I read a lot here about managing a young pup's introduction to sheep. What about a dog that's 3 1/2 years old and has never seen sheep? She has a solid recall and down. Is there an average number of times to expose the dog to sheep to see if it turns on to stock? What should I be watching for to see that she isn't going to be any use? I'm assuming that a dog that is interested in stock is not necessarily interested in working. If she is interested in the stock but doesn't seek a balance point, does that mean she doesn't have the needed instinct? I am, of course, assuming that the dog should be tried only under the eye of a good trainer. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
