Herding Clinic This Weekend

There is a beginner herding clinic this weekend and I am going with the ACD. I don't think we know enough but our trainer seems to feel that we're doing quite well. Seems to me that I get the "NO!" and "You're too LATE/EARLY" way too much to participate in a clinic but she says that this is all about learning and progressing. So ... I agreed to go. Yikes!

I have found that since working on sheep with the ACD, her stay is a LOT better everywhere else. I suppose that if she can manage to Stay while staring at a bunch of sheep then holding a Stay when we are in town and people are walking by is nothing! Who would've guessed that putting her on sheep would increase her self-control?

Anyway ... found this video yesterday and loved it! It's a bit off topic but I thought I'd pass it on because it was fun to watch.
