Get clear of that smoggy city air, grab your Wellington Boots, and embrace the Country Life with a memorable experience which is quite unlike any other! Experience the joy of handling friendly and fully animals under full instruction.
What happens on the day?
After tuition handlers are equipped with a shepherds crook and faithful collie who will work to voice commands. Experience the team spirit by negotiating an obstacle course with a trained sheepdog herding a small flock of ducks. Guests are taught a few basic commands to instruct the dog to achieve the task. Sheepdog Handling is a unique and much loved activity to promote team building or just a wonderful experience and great addition to a country pursuit style event.
Experience what it's like to be a falconer! Watch in ore as these magnificent beats glide through the air to land on your gloved fist. The Falconry activity is a wonderful chance to experience birds of prey first hand and includes the opportunity to interact with Hawk's, Owl's and Falcons (varies by venue). Guests are accompanied by an experienced and knowledgeable falconer who will provide a fascinating insight into the life of the birds. All equipment is provided and refreshments are available on the day.
Who is it for?
Family groups and Stag & Hen Parties looking for a break from the norm! Sheepdog Handling & Falconry is also great as part of team development day or a competitive corporate event. This fun, yet challenging activities require many skills; communication, problem solving and team work are key, though a sense of humour is essential as the outcomes are often highly amusing.
