Hi guys, I've uploaded photos and videos to Benny's Blog. Please let me know the dogs names (for those whose names i forgot and for those who i named wrongly...apologies in advance.). I kinda got mixed up along the way.

I did it a while ago with my cardi - I believe it's a one-on-one, the dog and you and the instructor/tester and the sheep. It's not a competition except in the sense that of course everyone wants their dog to do well. Each handler/dog goes in separately. :) It's something done prior to taking herding classes or getting involved in competition. Hope that helps!

Does anyone know if the Herding Instinct Test is more like a competition? I would like to take Penne to a herding event, but she's never been to one before so she probably doesn't know what to do (nor do I). Are there places around the bay area where she could go to "experience" herding in a non-competitive atmosphere?

hi Guys! We are so glad to have met SO many of you at the dog park yesterday! Look out for photos. They will be posted on Benny's blog in the next few days. =)
Many thanks to the dogs and their pawsome owners for letting us take pictures!

I have been to the fair grounds, absolutely beautiful. We go there in Sept for the Draft Horse Classic. That is something to see if you ever get the chance :)
Thought I was going to make this Sat at Shoreline, but my girl friend broke her leg (got bucked off a horse) and I will be her Taxi service for the day. Hope to make next month.

If anyone else is in the Nevada City/Grass Valley/Penn Valley/Auburn area (or doesn't mind a little driving), there's going to be a dog show at the Nevada County Fairgrounds this weekend, and an AnimalSave benefit next weekend. I'll be at both with Honey, Hooch, and my border collie Hana, too, and would be so happy to see some other corgis at either or both! The Nevada County Fairgrounds is a really lovely fairgrounds and worth the drive, too. :) If anyone sees two corgis (one red and white, one black-headed tri, and both small for corgis) and a border collie, please come say hello!
