Something else I would love to do with our dogs, but dont know anywhere that does it. Me and the dogs are always up for trying out something new, they love it!!
Were I live we have free roaming sheep and the dogs try desperately to try and round them up, but they have had to be taught not to chase them

I have the same trouble as I'd like to try my two as well. Wrens breeder breeds sheep and works her dogs on them and she said I can take Wren up there to try her on them too. I'll probably ask if I can take Sleet and my sister take her two as well, haha.
She's in North Yorkshire.

I'm between Cambridge and Peterborough so Thetford is about 45 minutes away. I have been there to meet up with Vince's breeder and go to sled dog rallies.

Im going to a lady in Sussex soon with Campbell and Chico to try them out. She does private lessons and they are not that expensive. I cant wait *sheep(

I think the trainer in Thetford you was asking about is Sara Jenkins, she does one to one sessions. Her e mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. I have her mobile if you want to pm me
