We made our way to the herding instinct test early, early this morning. The test was sponsored by the local PWC club, so the most amazing part for me was seeing 40 corgis together! Everybody had a great time cheering on everyone else's dogs, and the dogs had a great time meeting each other and hanging out. Everyone was so friendly and supportive, and all of the dogs were really well behaved. And Tegan passed! The judge said she was easily distracted, but thought that might be because she is young & needs more exposure to the sheep. Tegan was able to group the sheep and had some "balance" (i.e., kept the sheep between her and the judge) & really seemed to be having fun. Some of the corgis were incredible -- they'd never seen a sheep before, but went in to the pen and acted like they'd been herding for years. I can't wait to download photos. Now Tegan and I are going to look for a local herding club/coach, because we both enjoyed it so much. I'm so excited to have something new for the two of us to work on together.
