Teaching his dog, Dan, to herd cattle and sheep was not an easy feat for Thad Fleming.
“It takes a long time to train a dog,” the Missouri native said after his border collie competed at the Kentucky Cow Dog Trial Saturday in Bloomfield. “You don’t start nothing until they’re about a year old. It takes 60 to 90 days to get one under control enough that you can come out here.”
In Fleming’s case, though, Dan can sometimes get a little too excited.
