Tending in New Mexico - 07/16/10 02:50 PM

After a lot of soulsearching and with the blessing of Hubby I have decided to start a tending/herding group at my house! It has been so impossible to find anything other then "Barbie Herding" whistling around here!
At our 4th of July AKC trial a well-known Obedience person, who collects titles then disposes of the dog, looked like her and her BC were doing the heeling pattern with sheep thinking
So, I have contacted Peggy Richter in CA to come out in early fall to give us a clinic in tending/herding with big upright breeds. I think I will have a local trainer who is willing to be in contact with her give us pointers and have clinincs about every third month or so, and have practise sessions once a week!!
I am really really excited about doing this!!

Any thoughts or advise from anyone?

I also recommend Susan Sullivan for clinics and judging. She is fantastic.
