Training Clinics

The training clinic will be held in Switzerland County in Fairview, Indiana. ( 1 hr from Cincinnati,OH   2hrs from Indianapolis,IN   2 hrs from Lexington, KY)

The Clinics are Open to ALL Levels.

We will be limiting the number of working/dog spots to allow each handler / dog team to work twice a day. 
The sheep will be wool sheep and lambs along with a few young Katahdins.  There are appropriate sheep for all work.
We have a variety of places to work in - a round pen, a small pasture, a 9 acre hay field and a 40 acre crop field in the early spring and late fall.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
ALL dogs coming onto the property must be current on vaccinations and flea and tick prevention
If you would like to work more than one dog please contact me.

Clinic Format

 The usual clinic format - working once before lunch and then again afterward.
If you want to work a different dog in the morning and afternoon sessions this must be OK'd by the clinician.
You may enter any or all days of the clinic

Clinics are set up so that you learn from every handler and dog that is attending the clinic.  
It is not necessarily the amount of time You work with Your Dog that will be the most beneficial -  it is the information you take home from the clinic that will help you with each dog you work with.
It is a good idea to come to the clinic with goals for yourself but the clinician may see other things that need to be addressed.
You may want to consider private lessons if the clinic format and learning from everyone else is not what you are looking for.
I expect everyone will be encouraging and respectful of each other.
Dogs must be on a leash when not working.
You need to pick up after your dog.

Each clinician will hold the clinic as they see best.
.
Audit places are available for all clinics

We will adjust the clinic start time depending on the time of year,  temperatures and do what is best for the dogs and livestock.  
We will work rain or shine.
  Limited camper parking and only if ground is solid/dry - no hookups
All those wanting to camp must ask ahead of time
several RV parks within a 30 min drive
If you are wanting to camp you need to contact me, depending on the time of year I may not know until a couple days before the clinic
 if camping will be possible.
I would hate for you to get in and get stuck if it is wet.
My guard dogs can present a problem because I need them loose during the night to do their jobs
Be sure to bring a chair, notepad, dog crate you can set in the shade, ect.
We will try to get together with everyone and go out to supper one evening.
