Our experience day is undoubtedly the finest anywhere in the country. Working with sheepdogs is not a hobby but a way of life. You will spend the day with International handler, trainer and published author Nij Vyas and his winning team of dogs in the most picturesque and sublime locations. You will be taken on a memorable journey which will be hands on, educational, fun, rewarding, & emotive.
