Ball Herding Classes

Intro To Ball Herding


This first level class presents the basics in a fun and exciting seven-week class. Games shape the basic skills for the Ball Herding sport: basic herding cues, pushing objects, orienting to the handler, and learning to move around the ball. HERD those balls with confidence and control!

Ball Herding - Let's Herd!

Ball Herding:  Let's Herd!

With the basics in place, you and your dog will now work with the HERD one ball at a time, while distance increases along with the width of the field and the number of balls. The game starts shaping into the sport of ball herding, while everyone has fun along the way. Each team advances at its own pace with support and coaching to keep the teams motivated. It's exciting to see how quickly the dogs improve as they keep playing the game. We add other creative challenges with the balls, keeping the dogs challenged and motivated.
