I had posted a question awhile back about herding dogs and got lots of great replies, so I thought I'd try again. I'm stuck on the idea of getting one just because it looks like so much fun. How do I go about learning how to train and work with a herding dog? I don't know of anyone in my area that does it, and I don't have a clue. I've owned dogs all my life and know how to train basic obedience, but that's as far as it goes. I've never trained a dog to work, and I'm afraid the dogs I have now would be quite offended at the suggestion! I'd like to at least learn the basics before I actually get the dog, so I can give him something to do right away and he won't drive me crazy. Besides, that'll give me time to work on the dh who thinks 3 dogs is enough. I don't know what's wrong with him . . . Any ideas?
