Schutzhund Club Sheep Herding Instinct Testing

Today was a fun day for Bolo & Tasha.  They got to go play with sheep.  Several members of the Coal Mountain Schutzhund Association took their dogs to The Canine Ranch for a Herding Instinct Test. All the dogs tested, showed their willingness to work the sheep and will receive their “Instinct Testing Certificate”.  The photos have been uploaded here:  In some of the photos it may look like the dogs got a little rough on the sheep, but no sheep were hurt during this event. Their thick hides, wool, and the talent of Brian, the trainer, protected them from any damage from the dogs in training.  A few of the dogs did, however, suffer cut pads and sore muscles from being over exuberant chasing the stock.
