Herding Demo

***Time might change***Join us at Ewe-n-me Farm in Hilliard for a herding demo/test on April 7th from ? until ?. The cost will include the demo, food, and port-a-john. The cost would be divided based on the number of participants. I will be updating the cost as soon as it's determine, It would be probably between $60 and $75 (can change based on participations).

No age or training requirements. Open to other breeds as well if you don't think your corgi would be great at herding. 

There will be a waiver you must to sign. 

Check out the farms website: http://turickmalinois.com/herding-at-ewe-n-me-farm/

The farm recommends a well fitting harness for very young dogs or those that maybe especially exuberant to lessen collar pulling. A well fitted buckle collar that a dog can not slip out of. Gloves are smart and hiking type footwear since sheep hooves can be unpleasant on toes. 

If you plan to attend, please email me at naterainer627@hotmail.com with subject "Herding", give me your name and your dogs name. I will send the waiver to fill out. Please send back the completed wavier. Once I received your waiver, I will send you the link to make a non-refundable deposit of $25.00. If weather is a factor, we will reschedule. 

Owners are responsible to clean up after their animals while on the farm. We will provide poop bags.
