Instinct Test/Mini-Lesson $58

Your First Lesson - 15 Minutes

     We use this time to introduce your dog to sheep. We will be looking for your dog's sustained interest in controlling livestock movement, your dog's willingness to take direction from the handler, and your dog's ability to read the stock. 

     The test will last about 15 minutes and during this time, Robin will also be able to explain the sport in more detail. If your dog seems to have herding in it's blood, then you will receive a certificate saying that your dog Instinct Certified!!!

Plan to arrive 5 to 10 minutes early so your dog has a chance to potty before the test! Please remember to wear close-toed shoes! We ask that first-time visitors prepay for their first lesson via PayPal.

Herding Lessons $78

45 Minutes

     We train you and your dog together. The dog learns the skills required for herding livestock and you learn to handle the partner you have created. Whether your goal is to farm, do ranch work, enter herding trials, or just have fun, you and your dog learn to work together as a team.

     We want to make the sport as enjoyable as possible for you and your fuzzy friend! So book a lesson today and we look forward to seeing you!

Sheep Rental $25

45 minutes

Does your dog need more practice in between lessons? Maybe your instructor has noticed that your dog needs extra training in one area. That's when you may want to consider renting sheep. Book 45 minutes at a time online and we'll have sheep waiting for you in the round pen or arena! Rentals are not intended to take the place of lessons. They are intended to supplement your instructor's teaching with extra practice so that your dog can advance faster. You must have had lessons with one of the instructors before you are allowed to rent sheep.
