The principles learnt here can also benefit dog owners by helping them stop their dogs from chasing rabbits and deer.
You will see my border Collies working with the sheep which many customers find fascinating.
We have great walks over the farm with views over the Weald down to Hastings, plus some good local pubs to have a meal.
So after the sheep proofing why not go for a walk and have a pub lunch.
Please note I do not use electric collars or lock your dog in with a ram. In the half hour session I use strong voice commands and noise to stop dogs chasing sheep.
I always advocate that people keep their dogs on the lead amongst sheep, but there is a chance that you may come across sheep unexpectedly, therefore I can help in those situations.

Charges Over Lambing
Lambing (approximately mid-March to late April) is a crucial and busy time of year for us, therefore I have to increase my charges, as noted below:
Week 1 - an extra £10/dog
Weeks 2 to 4 – an extra £20/dog
Week 5 – an extra £10/dog
Please note that in the group sessions (which are organized by the dog owners) dogs and owners will still get one-to-one training.
Dog owners with more than one dog will receive a discount (but it has to be your own dog. Please don’t bring someone else’s dog).
A session for one dog lasts up to half an hour.
Payment is either with cash or credit card on the day, or in advance via BACS or PayPal (please ask for payment details. PayPal payments incur a £1.50 transaction fee).
This is a working farm, so please bring suitable footwear and clothing, and an ordinary lead for your dog. If you bring children, you will need to supervise them.
