Register for Herding Clinics

RRSF on The Travel Channel

Sunday Herding Clinics are open to a limited number of dogs (maximum of 6) and are designed for the intermediate to advanced herding handler. Owners who attend these clinics should have enough herding experience to work safely with livestock during unsupervised herding practice. Handlers must also understand how to apply positive reinforcement training principles to herding training. You can obtain this experience and knowledge by first attending one of the other behavioral or herding training seminars/workshops/camps at Raspberry Ridge or through private lesson equivalent.

Dogs with a keen desire to herd will especially benefit from this format, as well as handlers who wish to immerse themselves and their dogs in herding. During the 3 hour clinic, Carolyn Wilki will be available to each handler at least once during the clinic for a lesson or consultation. Sheep will be herded in a variety of locations, including small pens, standard trial pens, and a 40 acre field. Handlers are asked to bring a small notebook to write out their training goals and record their results. The use of positive reinforcement training for behavior modification in herding will be emphasized. If weather & interest permits, we might even go skiing or hiking!

Limit Number Dogs per Clinic: 6
