Herding training in Greater Geelong for beginners to advanced
Over 25 years of experience in training sheepdogs


Like humans, dogs all learn differently.  At Avenglenn, we do not believe in the ‘steps’ method to train a sheepdog.  We like to think outside the square!

We work with the dog and its personality, rather than make the dog fit the box.

All our methods are positive – We let the dog learn and develop to find its comfort zone around livestock (our instructors will get between a dog and the sheep, if they feel the dog is out of control or trying to bring livestock down to kill).

All our instructors are experienced with dogs and livestock (and also in other forms of dogs sports such as agility, flyball, obedience, etc.).

We work towards the dog being comfortable moving livestock in a ‘thinking’ manner – so we have the dog working on ‘MIND’ and not running on ‘BODY’.
