Chase After Three Weeks at Herding Camp

September 19, 2010

Susan has Chase dancing with his sheep. I’m so happy to see his progress. You may notice that Chase leaves the frame a couple of times — there were lambs in the adjoining pasture up against the fence, and Chase wanted Susan to let him bring them in as well. I love watching my boy in the field — hope you enjoy him as well.

Here are a couple of still shots also taken by Cheryl this afternoon.

    Ok, I am very impressed. With Susan as much as with Chase!

    I think he could go out there and get his HS, not to mention the test titles.

  2. Taryn says:

    Wow! He’s really catching on!

    Wilson would like to know why he’s never been sent to herding camp! Chase is one lucky Cardigan!

    He’s going to be fun! What a good boy!

    Chase really is amazing–and, of course, Susan is an AMAZING trainer! Yes, Carolyn, Susan is already teaching Chase some of the tools he will need for HS. As in obedience training, you always want to train at least one level ahead of where you intend to trial–if your intent is to go to the highest level. Chase is starting to learn to do an outrun, working on driving as well as fetching and has started to learn to “pen” the sheep. Chase and Susan make a formidable team. I’ll be trailing along to Chase’s debut in October for his HT so that I can video it for Penni’s enjoyment. He just came to stay at my house during the week since my girls are now out of heat. He’s a doll! He was poppin’ wheelies on the carpet last night trying to entice Treasure to chase him!
