Ok, now to Blue… At 9 months old, she is a ball of energy and she needs a job – other than destroying my shoes and our furniture.
Aaron Lake, who sold us the dog (and raises and trains dogs for his family farm, Thistle Creek Farm in Tyrone, PA) offered to come take a look at her along with another one of his young Border Collies named Tweed. Well, as you can imagine, it was not easy for Blue being on the leash waiting her turn to get to the sheep.
Especially while Tweed got to go right in and practice her cues.
Finally it was time!
And the sheep were – justly – in a high state of anxiety.
It was amazing to see the two dogs working together, keeping the sheep in a tight group and herding them to, and with, Aaron.
Blue loved it!
When they had finished with a “that’ll do”, dogs and owners went home happy and tired!
Just sayin’ – my shoes are still not safe!
