High Desert Collie Club

February 4, 2006

The High Desert Collie Club had the best turn out yet on Saturday, February 4. It was perfect weather for holding the third CCA Sanctioned Herding Instinct Certification Tests. Steve
Waltenberg an AKC Judge for Herding, tested 42 dogs, 39 which were Collies, and of the 39 Collies tested, 31 passed. The club had a list of "Fun Runs" which were completely booked. A great time was had by all. Right before lunch, Steve gave a mini-clinic on herding, which included working sheep and cattle. He enlisted the help of his stock handler Adriane for a demonstration of the different levels of herding. It was an awesome sight to see dogs working by just whistle commands. Steve said he was very pleased with the Collie turnout, and impressed with the numbers passing.
