Cronkshaw Hot Tub

Available for hire:

Fridays 12 noon to Sunday 12 noon: £70.

One bubble of up to 6 people.

Working Sheepdog experience

Meet the sheepdogs at the farm, watch them working and see the younger dogs being trained.

 

Join our farm staff for an hour long insight into the basics of training Sheepdogs. Meet our dogs here at the farm and those who are staying with us for training from farms across the UK.

 

We will talk about the history of the working sheepdog and its relevance in the 21st century - The tractor replaced the horse, but what will replace the sheepdog?

 

We will then go out into the fields with one of the dogs where you will get to watch the dogs herding the sheep, learn about the different commands and gain and understanding of the relationship between a Shepherd and a working dog.

 

After this we will head back to the farm and take one of the younger dogs out for a training session. Here you will see in action how the instinctive herding instinct is used, and how shepherds can train a dog to work towards a common goal - whether that's catching a sheep or pushing them all through one field, through a gate and onto pastures new.

 

Optional extra - stay for a light meal of dippy eggs from the farm and all organic hot buttered toast, Jam and honey all washed down with steaming mugs of tea, coffee and English apple juice. Served in a private timber framed dining space overlooking the hills. £8pp.
