I'm looking for a herding trainer/instructor in Michigan or Southern Ontario. 


I live in Windsor, which is right on the border, and I'm willing to drive about an hour or so to get there. I've been trying to Google trainers, and I've come across a couple, but I don't know if they are a good option. One of them is an all-breed instructor, one of them specializes in AKC trialing, and one who breeds working line Aussies. 


I figured I better come to the source, and see if there is anyone you guys would recommend. 


And because she's so cute, a picture of Heidi willing her football to move.

Dear Ms. Shandula,


I'd think your best bet is Ontario which boasts some world class handlers. Contact the Ontario Border Collie Club for contact info.

I volunteered scribing for the Judge at a trial recently at the Spicy Lamb farm (where I'm training), and there were open handlers from MI. you can find the names on the website results. but I'm not sure if they do training.

the judge, Mary Thompson, is from Ontario and I think she is great!

Yes and she lives just outside of London only about 11/2 hour drive from Windsor. Pm me if you want her email address.

Jeanne Weaver is an excellent trainer and I'm pretty sure she still gives lessons.  PM me if you'd like her contact info.  She is in Williamston, MI, probably a little less than 1 1/2 hours from Windsor.


Heidi is very cute. :)
