"One can not be a good teacher without learning and it is difficult to learn without teaching."
(J. Willis Hurst, author)
Two Coasts´ Herding is organizing clinics with foreign teachers regularly. Main purpose is to train ourselves. I have been to a lot of clinics with many different teachers and will never stop learning by myself. Since a few years I stick on inviting Tanya Wheeler from Canada (Tucker Creek) once a year. She has been and still is my inspiration and a very good teacher. In addition we try to fill up our "toolbox" by having clinics with Raphi Hischier from Switzerland, one of the best doghandler I know.
We also offer newcomer clinics, teached by us, the Two Coasts´ Herding Team. This includes a theoretical evening with all basic information, lessons about "body language" in between you and your dog and lessons about "how to move and read stock" with you and the stock. Afterwards we start to work your dog on stock to analyze his natural ability and to plan together with you how to start your dog with you in a team. Then your adventure of training starts.
