Gordon Watt Returns April 23 to 26, 2020

Mark your calendars for our next Gordon Watt clinic here at Heatherhope: Thursday through Sunday, April 23 to 26, 2020.

Gordon moved to the US from England several years ago. Before that he lived on the Isle of Man and was born in Ireland. He and his father before him were lifetime shepherds, and Gordon has won all sorts of singles and brace championships, including National Championships of Ireland and England and the World Sheepdog Championship. For many years he has dedicated himself to teaching others the fine art of sheepdog training and handling, and helping people to advance as far as they aspire to in that beautiful partnership of dog and handler.

As always we will welcome dogs and handlers of all levels. To guarantee a working slot, which gives you two times out with Gordon with your dog for one day of the clinic, send a check, dated for April 1, 2020, in the amount of $140. That is a $10 raise in price from the past, but allows us to cover all the costs of the clinic, including Gordon’s fee and a little to provide sheep. When you attend to work a dog or to audit we provide a continental breakfast, snacks, and a full lunch. Make checks out to John Seraphine, and mail them to the address on the “contact us” tab on the pages of this web site.

The price of auditing will be $45 as in the past.

You can sign up for one to four days, and you can run either a single dog in a day’s slot, or two different dogs.

On this web site you will find directions to the farm (see the “directions” tab at the top of each page), or you can phone, mail or email for more information.
