Well, today Coco and Toby (gamefanz) got to meet! We took them to a herd dog training farm and they got to try out some sheep and ducks. They both had SO much fun and got incredibly tired! I really can't wait to go back, I had fun too and was so proud of my little girl. The funny thing too is while we were waiting our turn, Toby and Coco got to hang out in an off leash area and yup they have the same play style! Sniff and kiss lol.

Here are Coco's pics. She got to try ducks first, and pretty much got down to business immediately:

(No ducks were harmed, and instructor was present with a long pole to protect the birds)

And then on to the sheep. She was not as enthusiastic about the sheep, but still did a wonderful job. I believe she was tired out from the ducks so couldn't give her 100% best, even though we had about an hour rest after the ducks.

I showed her one time what to do, and she was off.

Coco staring the sheep down, and they listen!

She circled around them so naturally

And a movie! You can really see how she is more a working type of dog than a toy dog :D

Wow wow! That is sooo cool. She did a great job, especially with the sheep. She seemed to have a lot of fun. Just like what Sabby said, it shows how much cavaliers can do.

Where is this place, on a farm or somewhere people take their dogs to practice herding?

That was beautiful!!
I know you have rottweiler background...me too. You just made the rottweiler community jealous!! You should post it to the rottweiler forum. I bet they would get a real kick out of it. :)
