Sigh I have learned I was misinformed the ASCA does not title poodles :Cry:I found out today that the ASCA (Australian Shepherd Club of America) will also title poodles in herding.
Of course my local herding co op is associated with groups that do ASCA, AKC and AHBA. AHBA does title poodles as AHBA considers Poodles a "Multipurpose Breeds With A Herding Background" Our instructor says for us to get 3 lessons under our belt before making any decisions about what direction we want to take in herding ie just a fun day with the dog, trial locally or get really into titles and trials with the dog.
We have one lesson under belt and came home with a list of commands to work on learning...
Of course Apollo was like hey these are new smells and then would do OH yeah goats herd wait what is that smell... It was really foggy so my son only managed to get a little bit of video. We were working on "Go Bye" in this snippet.
