This month's Camp is all about the cow! We will be bringing in a lot of different types of cattle! We will have cattle of varying levels of difficulty all weekend long! We will learn how to properly dog break cattle and how to work non-dog broke cattle. We will be pulling in with a trailer load of sale barn cattle, some nice calm easy to break calves and maybe a surprise or two!
I will show you what I do to gentle cattle using dogs. I will show you some training techniques that helped me train the 2022 ASCA National Finals Cattle Champion, Copper. Get ready to learn how to work cattle from chutes, alleys, sorting and penning. It's all about the COW this month.
Guest instructor, Erin Eckert will be here teaching cattle work with me. Erin's breed of choice is the Australian Cattle Dog and she and I share training philosophies! She is an excellent trainer and you will have a cohesive experience with us.
We will have limited spots and require a $100 non-refundable deposit. This will be expensive for us and we are looking for a serious commitment from participants.
Prerequisites: Dogs must be well-started at least on sheep. This is not a camp for beginners or dogs less than 1 year old. If you wonder if your dog will qualify, contact Jacque or Erin for an eval before registering. Dogs must have at least an off stock call off and down to work cattle safely.
Stockdog Herding Camps are a great way to get lots of working time with your dog. It's a great place to troubleshoot issues and learn new skills. Learn from other handler and dog teams. In past camps we have worked on ranch skills like sorting, holding gates, driving, keeping stock off food, pressure release techniques, pasture gathers and more! We also work on fine tuning training to prepare for trials and more precise work.
Each dog and handler team will get individual attention, lots of work time and customized training to meet their individual needs. It is a great time of learning and socialization for dogs and humans!
Some comments from past students:
"WOW! Thanks Jacqueline Kimber and I learned a lot. The progress we made in a couple days is unmeasurable."
"It was great fun and I learned a lot!"
"Thanks for the hospitality! I enjoyed the day and the people. I appreciate your input. Glad to be on this dog journey with mostly like-minded people. Looking forward to the next time!"
