Çfarë do të bësh

On arrival you will be welcomed by me, tenant farmer of Carcant farm and I will give an introduction that covers our work on the farm and explains what is involved in the demonstration, an explanation and demonstration of how we communicate with our dogs using their language.

You will then move to the enclosed viewing area where I will work and describe how I communicate with my young dogs using just body language and gestures, demonstrating how to control the hunting instincts and utilize their energy in to a working method that shows empathy for the sheep.

I will work with different dogs to show each step of training, while explaining why using pressure & release works and how important hierarchy is in the working dog.
I will show how I teach my dogs to use their brain and think for themselves along with teaching associated commands. I will also explain how working with my method “The Natural Way” creates a willing partnership.

After covering basic and intermediate stages I will bring out my fully trained dogs, demonstrating the value of these tremendous dogs as I replicate working situations what these dogs do every day.

To finish the demonstration I will work with two main dogs together as a team demonstrating the true teamwork and partnership I have with my dogs.

At the end there will be time for refreshments and to socialize with the dogs!

My name is Julie Hill and I am a tenant farmer in the Borders of Scotland.
Carcant is a traditional run sheep farm. Please ask for other dates as sometimes I can work around farm chores to offer a demonstration.

For the last 40 years I have dedicated my life to understand and working with these amazing dogs. I have a Canine communication certificate and won the highest level of competition.
Awards include Scottish & International Champion in Sheepdog competition in both singles and doubles. I made history becoming the first and only woman up to date in 113 years of the International sheepdog society founding to have won the prestigious award of International Supreme championship in both single and brace competition held for the whole of Britain!
I have written 2 books and produced 2 DVDs sold worldwide explaining my methods.

This bnb experience was the best thing we did on our vacation. It was absolutely the definition of a hidden gem. Her dogs are incredible... I have never seen anything like it. Julie answered all our questions and was the most amazing host and teacher. If youre looking for a once in a lifetime experience... call Julie.

The experience was truly unique. First hand we got to see an international champion trainer at work. The way she communicated with her dogs was absolutely amazing and remarkable. For all those dog lovers out there, its an absolute must visit. In fact, we planned our entire UK trip based on wanting to see Julie's and her team of professional dogs working. A special thanks to Molly, Ben, Sid, Isla and the rest of the team for a wonderful demonstration.

This was wonderful, fantastic, fascinating. We smiled throughout. Julie was an expert in her field, they way she trains and works with the dogs is truly amazing. The dogs were adorable and so intelligent. The facilities at the farm were way above my expectations. A lovely clean toilet, a wee shed with chairs, heater, tea coffee and mince pies and a picnic bench. The microphone and speaker so we could hear her doing the demonstrations. She has thought of everything. i would come and do this again.

Fantastic experience, it was fascinating hearing about how Julie trains her dogs and the 40 years of knowledge she has. Julie gave us an in depth demonstration as to how the dogs work along side her and the sheep. Situated in the heart of the borders, the experience was truly unique and I would highly recommend it.

A great experience with Julie who is an expert in her field and has such lovely dogs of all abilities. An insight into how to train sheepdogs and how long it can take to get them to work to their best ability. Thank you Julie for a great afternoon, I loved watching the dogs and yourself at work.

Gjëra që duhen ditur

Rregullorja e anulimit

Kërkesat për vizitorin

Mund të marrin pjesë deri në 10 vizitorë të moshës 18 vjeç e lart. Prindërit mund të marrin me vete edhe fëmijë nën 2 vjeç.

Sugjerime të tjera

The farm is easy accessible by car or bus.
The demonstration is held in the field by the house where there is a seating area for those less able.
Toilets are in the farm yard. The yard is hardcore but it’s still best to dress for walking in a grass field, so wear appropriate clothing and footwear.

Çfarë të marrësh me vete

Suitable clothing & footwear for the countryside for all types of weather. The farm is a 1000 feet above sea level so wrap up warm as you can always take layers off.
