Herding Camps were very popular in 2022, so we will continue the tradition. I am limiting my individual lessons and focusing on holding 2-3 day camps and events here at the ranch. All levels are welcome at any of the camps listed below. The longer format of the camp allows students lots of time on stock, immersion style!
All levels welcome- from beginner to advanced
Some Camps are 2-day events and others are 3-day events

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!
Cattle, sheep, goats, ducks and geese available to work. Each camp we will work on real life ranching work like: sorting, holding gates, pasture gathers, holding stock off feed, small pen lot work, and more!
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!
