Herding Instruction

I got involved with herding when I got my little red border collie Chili.  She and herding have brought many many wonderful things into my life.  This page is to let people know a few things about herding in the valley and across the state.

I am the Co-Founder, Vice President, and Executive Secretary of the largest cattledog association in the US.  Mountain States Stockdog Association.  I put on trials around home as well as travel and help others learn to host successful herding trials.

Chili and I won the 2016 Novice Dog Of The Year award for the MSSA (Mountain States Stockdog Association), 2017 she was the Reserve Intermediate Dog Of The Year.

Zuki was the Reserve Nursery Dog Of The Year in 2018.  She place 4th Overall in the Nursery class at the 2019 MSSA Finals.


Currently I am just taking private lessons.  I usually have cattle, goats, and sometimes sheep to work dogs on.  I have a small pen, a nice sized field to work, then a larger field.  Please contact me for more info!
