Dakota had his first herding lesson yesterday. He had so much fun, but according to the trainer he is to well trained, and has a permission problem. It started when I first let him loose on them. The other first timers ran to the sheep and didnâ€™t stop chasing them until some one caught them. Not Dakota, I though he would because he his whole body was shaking with anticipation watching the sheep but when I unclipped the leash and walked to the trainer I turned around and he asked me if I had told him to stay because he was still sitting in the spot that I hade left him just staring at the sheep. So I hade to call him to us and what he would do is run up to the sheep but when they would try to run away he would lie down the trainer had to bring in his dog to coax coda into chasing them. In the end he explained to me that Dakota hade a problem with permission he didnâ€™t think that he was allowed to that is why he didnâ€™t and once we got him going he would try to keep them in the corner, he said that Dakota was also a dog that liked order so when he got control he didnâ€™t want to cause them to become un orderly so he wouldnâ€™t move them. But by the end as long as we kept the sheep out of the corners started to let loose and become a â€œrealâ€ border collie. But what is most important is he had a great time and that is why we went:dogbiggrin:.
