Here at K9 Klass, we run herding breed workshops at our outdoor venue at Springwood Junior School in Waterlooville, where you will learn about your herding breed, how to prevent behaviour problems commonly seen in herding dogs living in urban environments and how to use your dog's natural instincts to enrich their everyday life
With many herding breeds now living in urban environments as pet dogs, they often do not have an outlet for their natural breed instincts, which can result in behavioural problems including traffic chasing, reactivity, repetitive behaviours and environmental sensitivity to name a few. Learning how your herding breed works and how you can use their breed instincts to give them a job to do can give them a happier, more fulfilled life and in turn prevent behavioural problems from arising.
During this 3 hour workshop we will cover:
The herding game is a fun game using balls to represent sheep and provides a fun outlet for your herding breed's natural instincts - no sheep required!
Within the herding game we will cover:
Certificate of attendance included upon workshop completion.
Dogs must be over 6 months old, be able to work off lead around other dogs/people and have no health issues that affect their mobility, as the herding game can involve tight turns and rapid movements.
We have spectator places available for these workshops as well as handler places, making them ideal for people who have dogs that cannot cope in a class environment but want to learn how to work with their dog at home.
Handler places limited to 5 dogs (up to 2 handlers per dog). Dogs must be able to settle during the theory parts of the workshop or be comfortable being left in the car when not working. The grounds are secure and the gates will be locked during the workshop.
"We have nothing but praise for Juanita and would have no hesitation at all in recommending her or any of the classes she runs. We will certainly look forward to continuing with further classes. Her knowledge, understanding and empathy for dogs is second to none."
