Is there some secret trick I'm missing? I want an AKC sanctioned herding test (HT). I can find herding trials easily on the AKC website. I can also find lots of herding facilities offering their own 'tests' and evaluations. I cannot find anywhere offering an actual HT. Frankly, I don't need to pay $50-100 for somebody to say, "Yup, she'll work." I kind of know that already; both her parents work stock and she's constantly throwing herding behaviors. I'd really like to spend the $$$ on the actual HT or even the HCT through AHBA. I swear I cannot find either. Like I said, lots of trials, lots of facilities offering their own (very expensive) verifications of instinct, but no HT or HCT's? If you find me one within like 3 hours of Chicago you get a cookie.
