For all of our new followers this is Gus. Our sheep herding border collie extraordinaire. We have a small sheep farm in upstate New York where he heard his own sheep! Gus and I have some awesome adventures planned this year including more kayaking, sheep herding clinics and hopefully a herding trial or two! If you would like to learn more about us and all of Gus’s farm friends go visit our blog at Caciafarms.com
Merlin’s mom emphasized that he was a car chaser! He pulled so hard on walks! So we’ve worked on teaching him impulse control and manners around cars. Today we walked him at 23 Mile Road & Mound Road. Good boy!! #impulsecontrol#manners#herding#happytailsrule
This regal looking fellow is Charlie, an 8 year old #bordercollie who is just finishing up his successful #flyball career and focusing more on #herding and more low impact sports.
He came in for a #SportDog Assessment with a goal of maintaining #painfree mobility going forward.
This dog was an absolute pleasure to work with!
We started preparing for treibball training today. It was our very first session and we worked on 'away', where Lily runs out and lies on her mat.
I started by luring Lily into a down on the mat from a couple of paces, then introduced the command 'away', and then built up the distance.
No video yet @therealcassimasmaximus , but hopefully next time I'll remember!
I met my pawrent @hayleybug_97 today! 💖 She comforted me on the long car ride home, and that’s when I fell in love with her! Ever since we got home, we have been inseparable! I love herding her feet when she walks around! 😜💓 She has been telling me that I have some big paws to fill, but I’m up for the task! #pawrents#pawrent#herding#herdingdog#paws#puppiesofinstagram#puppies
