Dog-lovers will adore this great sheep dog experience day on a working farm in Wales.
Our Sheep Dog Experience is a great gift for sheepdog fans and dog lovers who want to have a go. Really apt also for a 7th wedding anniversary wool present!
Spend a morning with one of South Wales’ best young sheepdog handlers, Ross Games, who competes and judges internationally as well as training Welsh Border Collies at a Welsh hill farm at the southern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
The experience includes an overview of handing and training, with demonstrations from Ross’s dogs who are at different stages of the education. You will learn the classic commands as used in One Man and His Dog, and get to have a go with Ross’s dogs and his little herd of training sheep.
On the farm there are rare breed sheep and other livestock. We have dates for 2020 from Mid-August to October and you can request dates as long as Ross is available as he competes nationally & internationally as well as shearing in the summer months. If you visit in April / May, there will be lambs that you can also meet on the experience.
As an added benefit, all Good Day Out activities and adventures help good causes. This experience also gives a donation to farming charity RABI for every date that is booked.
