We have a 10 acre field, with Hebridean sheep, and Badgers too. Plenty to practice basic training, including good sized outruns before needing varied outrunning experience. Also for penning sheep, and putting through a race, important for both border collies and kelpies.
If you are visiting North Yorkshire, or just passing through, and you want to give your dogs a run or a training session, please get in touch.
Arrangements can be made for novice handlers and their dogs, on an individual basis or in a training class.
Good value facilities and advice on offer!
Training is always moving on. We are aiming to get the dog behind the sheep and holding them to you, in a satisfactory manner. Once you achieve this, then you can refine the dog's behaviour (and yours) to whatever level you wish. There is a long way to go, should you wish to run at sheepdog trials.
