Remember, visiting Mainline is not just a sheepdog experience it's a Corporate Collies ™ Sheepdog Experience, the only one of its kind in the UK

Sheepdog Experience
The Sheepdog Experience
From learning the basics of handling a sheepdog you will progress to working several different dogs and will ‘shepherd’ a small flock of sheep around a course designed to test the handling skills you have learned.
TLC Training
What is TLC Training?
TLC helps us to access our dogs’ minds, to know what they are thinking and to understand their behaviour. It helps us to communicate with them and to provide a foundation for all forms of training.
