All Breeds Welcome
The problem of sheep worrying is very serious, yet with training and understanding you can continue to enjoy your walks in the countryside. The truth is that all dogs are capable of causing untold damage to livestock. We are unique in offering this type of training in a safe and controlled environment using the very same methods which train Border Collies and other herding breeds.You will find the training experience to be educational and enjoyable. My approach to sheep socialisation is unique and is supported by complete notes and handouts on a number of related themes; such as dominance, obedience, recalls etc.
"A dog attack is costly to the livelihood of a livestock farmer. We estimate that two dog attacks in Suffolk in 2004, and the repercussions from them, cost around £4000 in treatments, lambing difficulties, poorly and late finishing lambs and difficulties getting the ewes in-lamb again."
