mum24dog Posted October 24, 2014 Report Share Posted October 24, 2014 Apologies for a question that must have been asked many times before but what age do you guys start training your dogs on sheep and, to avoid misunderstanding, what do you mean by "training"? I may do some sheep work with my pup and his breeders say they don't start before a year old but I have seen videos of pups being introduced to sheep very much earlier. Going there for lessons is an option - journey time about 75 mins. On the other hand I have just been watching a video where a 12 week old pup is introduced to sheep and the commentary implies that training in earnest will not be too long in the future, certainly before 12 months. The video is of a local trainer and a client. The second trainer is only 15 to 20 mins away and I like him personally. Both trainers have international trialling experience and are well known here. I may change my mind as agility is the prime aim for my pup but all options are open at present. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
