Stockmanship Clinic – Handler and Herding Dogs Training to Improve Livestock Management
November 26, 2016 - November 27, 2016
Stockdogs have been used for hundreds of years to efficiently manage livestock. They are just as efficient today if you learn the skills needed to train and use a talented dog. Not only used to gather and move stock, dogs can be taught to watch gates, encourage stock to move down a chute or load on a trailer with little stress to stock and people. Clinics held spring and fall with you and your dog working together to learn needed skills.
Clinic opportunity with clinician Jack Knox Nov 26 – 27 in southeast Indiana. Jack grew up in Scotland, worked as a hill shepherd there before coming to the US as a shepherd. He has worked with all breeds of livestock and stockdogs. He has raised North Country Cheviot sheep and Angus cattle using his dogs to assist with every possible chore. He is known in the US, Canada, and the UK for being one of the best stockman and trainers around. Jack shares his lifetime of practical experience and knowledge doing clinics around the country.
Price per participant is figured by number of participants and expenses.
Opportunity to bring your dog and work with Jack or come and learn without a dog. In the past with 8 working slots filled cost is 400.00 for the 2 days and 70.00 a day for those watching. I am hoping we will have more interest to reduce cost. Lunch has been provided at past events.
