We have a 3.5yr old Sheltie, Abby, that we've had for only a few weeks. She's really taken an interest in "helping" me when I'm herding the Scovies and esp. when I am trying to separate out our big blue drake fm running our chocolate drake ragged. I was amazed at how well she did today considering the short time she's been with us and my lack of knowledge on how to train her to what I want fm her. I did find a stockdog trainer that is reasonably priced & about 1 hr. away. Any stories about training your Sheltie or other breed of dog or the results of said training? Did you find it worth the time and money? What are your recommendations when looking for a trainer?
