Private Herding Lessons

Learning to herd with your dog

The most popular way to learn herding with your dog is by attending private or group lessons. During these lesson I work with you and your dog helping each of you (separately and together) learn about how to work sheep. While you can come at whatever frequency suits your lifestyle most people come once a week. Students and their dogs also get the opportunity to participate in the activities on our farm and gain important practical experience.

Private lessons get you more personalized and detailed instruction than group lessons but you dont get the benefit of watching and learning from others. Private lessons are by appointment and typically only booked a week in advance to give people currently using a time slot the chance to keep it each week. Please be aware that the weekend slots are the most popular but they are also the most likely to be cancelled periodically due to other events such as trials, mini-camps etc.

To schedule a lesson you need to contact me at least 48 hours in advance and not more than 1 week in advance. To schedule a lesson e-mail or call 541-971-0372. I offer lessons at 8,9, 10 and 11 am seven days a week (unless i have a confilcting event).
