Herding Instinct Test

The Instinct Test is held in a small pen, either round in shape or with rounded corners,
which can vary in size from 50 x 50 feet, up to 100 x 100 feet. Livestock used can be
cattle, sheep or ducks. The dog will enter the pen on a 6-15 foot long line. Before
removing the line, the dog must demonstrate a stop (down, sit or stand) and a recall.
Once the dog has completed this exercise, the line may be dropped for the dog to drag,
or removed entirely. If the dog cannot exhibit the stop, the tester is not to allow the dog

Once the dog is allowed to approach the livestock, the tester will be looking for sustained
interest in controlling the livestock. This can be shown by the dog gathering the livestock,
moving the livestock toward the handler, or moving them ahead of the handler in a
driving position. A combination of any of these styles is acceptable
