Subject: Re: [FARMCOLLIE] Herding drive - puppy testing
> It sounds like you have a great system - I'm still learning what to look
for with my dog (she has a great herding drive, I need to learn to direct
her). Do you live near Maryland, by any chance? I'd love to have my
puppies tested when they come along.
> Does the ability to herd generally stay true? That is, would a promising
puppy do well later on, even if it didn't have much exposure to sheep in the
interim? On the other hand, could a not-so-natural herder be brought up to
speed with much exposure and training?
