A LITTLE ABOUT LYLE:
Lyle started training dogs in 1986 with her first Border Collie, Jock, purchased from Jack Knox as a pup. She had never experienced sheep before that time so she got the dog to help her out !! And so it began,... her two children Doug (now 32) and Val (29) helped her every step of the way by managing the farm and traveling to dog trials. Little did she know the adventure Jock would start her on !!
Fortunately she was able to go to Yorkshire, England twice to work as a shepherd on the Dales with her daughter as companion and assistant shepherd. She learned a lot about sheep which in turn taught her to train dogs.
She started training dogs not long after she started running Jock in trials. A man had told her, "if you can train him, you can train anything!" He was quite a handful and to this day Jack Knox laughs at what a wild but strong dog Jock was.
So now, almost 27 years later she is still training dogs, Border Collies and the occasional upright working dog. Lyle has about 12 of her own dogs and usually 6+ dogs in for training. Matt, her husband, works dogs also when he's not playing the cello for the prestigious Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. He has two girls that grew up on the farm with them and are now off to college.
Lyle's educational background is a B.S. in Elementary Ed and Physical Education, K-12 which she draws on to teach her seminars, lessons, as well as training dogs.
She has won and placed in many trials throughout the years and a few of those highlights are:
-winning the Blue Ridge Open SDT in 1992 with Jock. Lyle's first win with her first dog!
-winning the NAILE trial in 1994 with Mick (overall winner) but also winning day one with Cap, placing 2nd day two with Cap.
-winning the Bluegrass 3 years in a row with Cap! (the overall as well as each day)
-placed 4th at the National finals in 1996, placed 4th with Jace at the Nationals another year. Most years being in the top 17 at the Nationals with her dogs Jock, Mick, Cap, Jim, and Shep!
-2007 Lyle won the prelims at Meeker, CO with Shep, and placed 12th with Moses. Shep also won the "best drive" award in the double lift, and ended up 5th overall.
-more recently, June 2011, Shep and Lyle won the prestigious trial, "The Big One" , both days, on unbroke sheep and a 900 yard outrun!
- September 2011, Shep and Lyle traveled to Penrith, England to compete in the World Trial! Competing with the 240 best handlers in the world, we place 16th !

Thanks to Bill & Elaine Blaschke for opening up their farm to all of us who participated in this clinic. And thanks to Lyle Ladd for giving such a great clinic. I, for one, very much enjoyed it and truly learned a lot!
