Our half and full day events are unique and bespoke to your company, catering from two to a twelve in each group.All event includes refreshments, certificates, photographs and a debrief.
What you can expect....
...is to work with a canine team to control the sheep.
...is to be able to move them around the field and to negotiate any obstacles that may arise. Delegates will be given tasks to complete and will have to fit each dog to the task it is best equipped to accomplish. They will need to match the handlers to work with the dogs they selected, and they will need to understand each dog as an individual team member.
Sheepdogs are excellent mentors working together in harmony for the good of the pack. Their observation and communication skills enable them to assess and interact with team players, balancing strengths and vulnerabilities to gain optimum performance.
As a team player you will need to be able to delegate and to recognise and balance with the strengths and vulnerabilities of your team.
As a leader you will have to be able to identify the different strengths of each dog, be able to adapt to each one to get optimum performance and to recognise who is best equipped for which task.
