Instinct Test can be entered the day of the test

We have a great Herding day planned for Monday, October 28!

  • A Herding 101 seminar will be available for $25 a person (payable on site), running from 9-10:30 a.m. For those with dogs who’ve never been on sheep, this will also offer an opportunity to introduce your Puli to sheep before the tests.
  • We are offering 2 Puli-only Herding Tests on Monday, October 28.  There will be 2 judges and 2 tests for Instinct Test, HT and PT, so your Puli could possibly earn a Herding title or Certificate in one day.  Entry fee per dog, per test is $25.

The Herding Instinct Test (HIT) is a simple test to determine whether or not your dog has the “instinct” required for herding. No prior training is required.

For Herding Tested (HT) and Pre-trial Tested (PT) dogs must have training and prior exposure to livestock. All three tests are a non-competitive pass/fail format, and require two passes, under two different judges, to earn the HIT certificate or HT or PT title. Herding Instinct Tests can be entered ‘day of the show’ until maximum entries are reached. HT and PT require pre-entry. 

NOTE:  For the Instinct Tests only, you can enter on the day of the tests.  There is a maximum number of 25 entries per test.  If you plan to sign up on the day of the test, please have your entry forms with you and filled out.  This will ensure you have the right information (AKC registration number, date of birth, etc.) and will speed up the process.

Location is Ranch Terra Norte, 1227 East County Road 82, Wellington, CO.

Your Puli may have a ton of fun.  And remember, Herding titles and certificates count towards the Versatile Puli award.
