Urban herding, or "dry herding," is a fun and interactive way to allow your herder to have an approximation of what they were bred to do. So many herding dogs live urban lives without access to sheep or cows. That doesn't mean that they can't have fun!
This class is a live, virtual class. We will meet online for four sessions, and Emily will guide you through teaching basic herding directional cues off of stock!
This class is not intended for dogs who will work stock and is designed for dogs who will work for a toy reward, such as a ball or frisbee.
The class is fun, supportive and interactive. You'll also have access to the private Facebook page where you can follow along as other students practice and post videos for feedback.
Our Wild at Heart Instagram account @wildatheartdogs has great example videos of what is possible!
