Title: Who works their dogs?

As the title says really. How many BCWorld members work their dogs on sheep or cattle? Do you do it for fun, trials or work (or a combination)?
Pics of some dogs at work would be great. I will add some later :wub: *sheep(

Would love to give it a go but haven't a clue where to look. Trouble is we have free roaming sheep and the dogs have been taught not to chase them.

Training one dog as a stock dog on sheep and helping with training three more. Looking at getting another dog myself to train to trials standard.

We're taking a course and we are having classes once a week. It's very useful because it's helping us to really understand them and to control them better. And on top of it they have great fun. Well, we all have fun. It's not easy, though.
