McRuff got evaluated as a herding dog, today!

A friend of ours came by today, to evaluate one of our English Shepherds as a herding dog. We’d love to have a dog that can help us move livestock around. But, knowing little about training them and not wanting to instill bad habits, we decided to let a professional get us started.

Dave brought his Border Collie with him, to show us how it could be done, and then we let McRuff work with her, to move a small group of 6 buck goats around. He gave us a LOT of info in a short time, and we learned a great deal. In his opinion, McRuff shows a lot of promise to be a top notch herding dog and I was very proud of him, today.
