Sandy Moore


Sandy started with a Sheltie and a Cocker Spaniel, given to her at the age of eight by her sister and brother-in-law, Sue and Ed Haase. She started in 4-H dog training at the age of 9. By the age of thirteen she was the 4-H ambassador for the state of Nevada. At fourteen Sandy was working with Joy Schultz at the original Carson Valley Kennels, in Gardnerville, NV. While there she worked as a kennel helper, and also trained dogs in obedience. At the age of seventeen Sandy, and her Sheltie Burgie, qualified for the Gaines Obedience Championships. At age twenty-seven Sandy, and her Belgian Sheepdog Graf, won the United States Agility Association’s Regional Competition in Los Angeles. This was the first such event ever held. Sandy’s win was a first for Nevada as well.

Sandy was employed for several years as a trainer/decoy for Pro K-9. There she helped in the training of both protection and search and rescue dogs. She also ventured into the dog show circuit for a few years, as a conformation handler. During this time Sandy showed Miniature Poodles, Belgian Sheepdogs and Belgian Tervurens. She finished five dogs in her short-lived career. Showing in the confirmation ring was not where her passion was, but it was an educational step in learning structure and movement, which is extremely important in the function of a herding dog.

It was 1984 when Sandy was first introduced into herding, watching stock man Rupert Poe artfully working several of his Border Collies in an open field one fall day. She apprenticed under Rupert for many years working every dog she could get her hands on.

In the 90's she began assisting the Reno Humane Society, and several other organizations, in the rehabilitation of dogs with behavioral issues. Local veterinarians began calling her to assist in the evaluation of “hard cases”, and to help people with their difficult dogs. Sandy’s training methods are based on the principles of acclaimed trainers Ian Dunbar and John Rogerson.

In the early 1990s, while Sandy was working with behavior and problem solving for difficult dogs. During this time Sandy matured as a stock dog trainer, teacher and judge. Over the years she has blossomed as an instructor in what she calls “The fine art of Herding”. Sandy has put hundreds of herding titles, many AKC and AHBA herding trial championships on many breeds, as well as several Working Trial Champions in the ASCA program. She has had over 25 High In Trial Specialty wins, with various breed including GSD, Belgian Sheepdogs, Belgian Tervuren Belgian Malinois, Australian Shepherds. She has enjoyed being the national herding tester for the German Shepherd Dog Club of America during the nationals and has been very active within the club as a herding committee member since 1993. Watching her students grow into fine handlers, trainers and judges is one of her greatest achievements.

As an AKC and AHBA trial judge and clinician, Sandy has traveled across the U.S. and several country's including England, Australia, Scotland, Wales and France. She has gained experience in many techniques and styles of herding from multiple regions and fellow trainers.
When asked what is most important in a lifelong career as a dog professional, her answer is “Integrity, long lasting friendships, loving your job and loving those dogs.

Sandy founded and co-owns, with business and training partner Terri Jones, Sheepcamp Kennel & Livestock in Gardnerville, NV.
