April 25-28, 2019 Gordon Watt Clinic

Gordon Watt will return to Heatherhope Farm for a four day, all ability level, sheepdog clinic Thursday through Sunday, April 25-28, 2019.

Gordon has been coming to Heatherhope since 2007, and we have heard nothing but praise for the great improvements he facilitates with each dog and each handler.

There will be 12 working slots each day–each working slot affords you two times out with Gordon, either with the same dog each time or with different dogs. You can sign up for any number of days you wish to be here, but we cannot guarantee your spot until you get a check in to us. That way we can be the most fair to all who want to enter.

As always we also invite people to audit. If you audit you will not run a dog in the clinic, but you can learn a great deal by observing, and by asking questions about what is happening with each of the dogs being worked.

Please write to us at heatherhopefarm@gmail.com for all the details about working slots or auditing. A daily continental breakfast, full lunch, and lots of great conversations are part of the experience.
