  • This was an amazing experience. I think it was in the 5-7 pound range so a great deal for a one hour "show". I loved how rustic and authentic this place was. Neil was very good with the dogs and you could tell the loved to work the sheep. We got the chance to clip wool and bottle feed the lambs. Highly recommended if you are in the area- you won't forget the experience.
  • We visited Leault Farm on the rainy 26th of June 2016 and it was FANTASTIC! The way Neil works with his dogs is amazing. He gives a lot of information (with Scottish accent 😉) and involves everyone who wants to be. He is really a no-nonsense man which means that you don't have time to be bored with non interesting information. The puppies are adorable and feeding the lambs was for our 5 year old a real highlight.
  • The absolute highlight of our trip through Scotland. So incredible to see what dogs are capable of when spending enough time with them to train them properly. It's also a great way to learn more about Scotland's farm life with sheep, and how certain traditions have lasted through the centuries!
  • Great experience informative and entertaining
  • Our recent tour of Scotland included a visit to the Leault Farm to see a demonstration of working sheep dogs. It proved to be one of the highlights of our trip. Not only did Neil put the Border Collies through their paces, but his wife - I'm sorry, I didn't catch her name - narrated the action, as the dogs herded a small flock several hundred yards away, brought them to Neil, then kept them contained as he gave the dogs different commands. It was amazing! And to add to our enjoyment, the Ross' children brought out a litter of Border Collies and a one-week-old lamb for us to pet. It was an hour well-spent and a memory we will savor for years to come. I recommend it highly!
