Stock Dog Clinic
A clinic is an instructive, hands-on dog/handler training school using livestock.
In a relaxed and informative environment, the goal of the clinic is to develop the ability, style and skill of the dog working with stock; although to a greater degree it is to teach the handler to bring out the natural ability inherent in the dog.
Dogs will be started on sheep.
Clinics are usually 2 days in length. All levels are welcome. Times: 9 am - 5:30 pm daily.
