While Border collies have natural instinct to herd sheep, they must be trained on directions (left and right), to stop, and to move the sheep away from the handler.
Thus, sheepdog camp. During the camps, the handlers and dogs work on herding.
This year, I'm participating in the camps with two-year-old Raven. I'm also working at the camps.
My job is to sort six or eight sheep from the flock and move them to a specified place on the 10-acre field. Then, the trainer and participant and dog go to work.
It's a perfect working vacation for someone who likes to read, to work dogs on sheep, and to spend the days outside.
