I've been trying to find herding classes in Japan but I can't find any. Concretely, the problem is the Sheepdog Society Japan has this blog:


But I looked and couldn't find any way of contacting them. The blog lists trials but I want lessons. I spent several hours googling for it but I just couldn't find anywhere that offers it. But they must exist since without classes they wouldn't have so many trials. So:

Does anyone know how to either contact the sheepdog society in Japan or any other way of finding lessons?

Hokkaido would be ideal as a location.

  • Some listings show "Morning Mist sheep dog training center" 朝霧シープドッグトレーニングセンター but I'm having trouble finding the location/contact details. You can comment on the post--have you tried that? – mkennedy Jan 10 '16 at 16:17

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it does not seem to be about travel at all. – Willeke Jan 10 '16 at 17:00
  • @mkennedy No I haven't. It would mean publishing my email address on the internet which I'm kind of reluctant to do. But maybe that's the only way. – Matt N. Jan 11 '16 at 0:08
  • Break it up, or get a throwaway (like a yahoo one) just for this. – mkennedy Jan 11 '16 at 1:09
