体験できること

You will be audience to Derek and myself as we run our experienced, trained sheepdogs and guide a packet of sheep around a course with just whistles to command the dogs from a great distance. We will explain what we're doing and why it's a practical skill in shepherding for each element. There is no sheepdog without a shepherd, and vice versa! Then, if any of you would like to have a go at running a sheepdog, we have Meg, our 9 year old dog who will run for anyone! You could not be in a safer pair of hands (paws?) with Meg. We'll teach you the basic commands, and let you play around with moving sheep around a field. It's incredibly rare for a dog to be willing to take commands from a complete stranger, but Meg absolutely adores her job! We will wrap up the experience with a small tour of the farm, showing our various breeds of sheep and explaining the tiered system of sheep farming in Britain, and how we will move forward with the market and demands of today within our flock.

Ludivineについて詳しく知る

My boss Derek has been training sheepdogs for over 40 years. He started as a shepherd on a hill farm in central Scotland, and quickly developed a method of training that worked for him and his dogs, bringing out the best of their abilities and innate talents. Derek has won many accolades in the sheepdog trialling world, and has been giving training courses and demonstrations for well over 20 years. If there is anyone who could make the enigmatic art of running a sheepdog accessible and understandable to the public, it would be him!

実施場所

We will do our demonstration and tour on our farm, Raise Lodge. It is a 60 acre lowland farm just outside of the Lake District, with a beautiful Georgian farmhouse and various outbuildings for handling and housing livestock. The weather is very mild for the north of England throughout the year so we have a flock of very happy, well looked-after sheep! The demo will take place in one of our fields, with an option to run on the hill if time allows.
