Our sheepdog handling courses/activities are designed for the absolute beginner or novice, you don't need to even  ever  owned a dog . we started in 2007,and offer a   one-to-one and  group displays  it . makes a lovely gift for the dog  lover  ,

We have a team of working sheepdogs trained to work to a high standard with members of the public. On your experience you will handle a dog with sheep (under instruction) around a small course to test your new skills at the end of your session .

want to try it then ?  [ sheepdog handling requires you to be fit  enough to move away from the sheep if need be , and you will also have to walk  across two fields  that are uneven ground and sometimes wet or muddy ],Our dogs operate on a variety of commands which you will learn. The most fun is when you put your new skills into practice, however, as sheep can be a fickle animal at the best of times. They don't always do as instructed and this may be your greatest enjoyment! - either way we are sure you will have the most memorable time with us!    note...   SHEEPDOG EXPERIENCE IS WEEKDAYS ONLY,  YOU WILL BE OUTSIDE IN A FIELD BUT WE DO HAVE A FIELD SHELTER WITH SOME CHAIRS FOR THE SPECTATORS ,                                                                                                                        07788298432   GIVE US A CALL OR EMAIL ,                                                                                                              .we also offer   CORPORATE TEAM BUILDING,wedding parties hen parties .  school parties , GALA AND SHOW DISPLAYS WITH OUR DESIGNER DUCKS ,education visits,hen or private  parties TV FILMING ECT, ect   ring for details    /   SOME WEEKEND DATES AVAILABLE  for corporate days hen parties ect           not sheepdog 1 to 1 experience,    see us on TRIPADVISOR
