Battle Ground, Washington
Brigand’s HideOut is a sheep ranch that has become a premier herding facility with experienced stock handlers, trainers, herding enthusiasts and volunteers willing to help you discover the world of herding. Contact Nancy if you are interested in herding – there are classes and lessons almost weekly and clinics throughout the year.
We believe the performance of a herding dog is enhanced if involved in more than one sport. With this in mind, Brigand’s HideOut also provides classes and activities for other canine performance sports such as obedience and agility.
There are several LIVESTOCK GUARDIAN DOGS (LGDs) on the premises as well. Though they might ask you for some attention, please ignore them. They are at Brigands to live with and protect the sheep. Giving them attention will distract them from their work. In most situations, the LGD must be tied-out before you can work the sheep that they are protecting.
