Herding.Is.Fun.

I think I am about to become addicted to herding.

Both Hunter, Ellyn, Dotty, and Beatrys all passed their HIC and HCT tests today at Ewe-Topia in Roy, WA. I will get pictures up as soon as I have some…

Each dog had 3 sheep to herd in a small corral area. We took the dogs in one at a time, but Dotty and Ellyn needed a little bit of help realizing that yes, their job that day was to chase sheep. So, when Dayl took Dotty in, she also brought in Beatrys who immediately went after the sheep. Once it all clicked in Dotty’s head she was on. Same for Ellyn. Ellyn had so much fun the second time around, she didnt want to leave the pen!

Hunter was amazing! He took off after the sheep without me encouraging him, and he stopped when told and did perfect recalls both times. He stayed very focused and didnt wander off to pee on the fence, or eat the sheep poo, or get distracted by the other dogs and people outside the fence (like a lot of the other dogs did).

The dogs got muddy and stinky and had a great time. I have GOT to find someone close to me that herds… I would probably go all the time!
