Enjoy this unique opportunity to try your hand at the traditional art of sheepdog herding with this One Man and His Dog gift experience.
Just like the TV show of the same title, this One Man and His Dog experience provides the perfect opportunity to experience first-hand what it takes to herd a flock of rogue sheep with a trusted sheep dog in a stunning and picturesque location in West Yorkshire.
Your day will begin with a short talk on the dogs so you understand their natural instincts and then you'll be introduced to the dogs themselves. The morning will be spent learning the dogs' 'language' in a training ring, working 2 or 3 different dogs. For lunch, 'Shepherds' usually go to the local pub or you can bring a packed-lunch if you would prefer. In the afternoon, you will be learning to work dogs loose in the field and finish moving a small flock of sheep around the field and completing a small course.
The sense of achievement you'll feel when you've finally got all the sheep in the pen will leave you feeling like a real shepherd.
Selected Monday to Friday dates, all year.
The total experience will last for approximately 4 to 5 hours.
There'll be a maximum of five others in your group.
You are welcome to bring along family and friends to watch you do this activity, however the centre will charge them a fee.
You must be at least 16 years old to participate in this activity.
There are no fitness requirements or previous experience needed but it is not suitable if allergic to dogs.
You'll get the best out of this experience if you're a genuine country lover.
This is for a voucher entitling the holder to any of the activities supplied by Activity Superstore up to the value stated.
The sheepdog day was amazingly wonderful for me. She has a Border Collie rescue place there too, and she has won every title worth winning, she was impressive to me. barbara styles....I would love to live there and learn from her full time...if only. I was so taken by west yorkshire that I stayed the whole weekend, Steam train, Haworth, where the Brontes lived...and Saltaire, and amazing place.
