Are there any clinics or classes for hearding dogs within about 30 mins or so from Brown county? I spoke with an advisor at the dog show last year at the fair and she said they have clinics to take your dogs to over the summer. I did not get her contact info so i dont know who to ask.

I am unaware of any herding dog clinics specifically for 4-H members. We do not have any that we offer in Ohio. I did some searches and found a trainer in Cynthiana, Kentucky, who offers clinics, and has video tapes, etc. that might help you. It would be worth contacting him. Here is the contact information:
