medic09 Posted June 17, 2015 Report Share Posted June 17, 2015 I can't see a real downside, but figured I'd ask. Golan is two years old now. He was born on a ranch not far from here. He's an excellent companion dog. He displays some very typical Border Collie behaviors. I'm thinking of taking him for instinct testing to one of the herders in the area who offers that. I don't know what I'll do with the info, because I don't really have any plans to go into herding (much as I would like to). I'm just curious for now. The only work I'd considered him for was SAR, before I was ill almost two years ago; but I haven't recovered my strength and stamina to be able to keep up with a dog working scent in the mountains. Is there a reason not to do the instinct testing? Will I just frustrate my dog if, as I expect, he responds with interest to sheep; and I don't continue on that path to train and work him?
