I'm Shannon Wolfe and I love what I do here. I call my job "dancing with dogs". Let me share it with you...
-- named for a fabulous dog
who inspired me decades ago --
is a place I've built
to share the world of herding
with folks just like you.
Herding is the what we do here and I have people from all walks of life come to the farm to work with their dogs on sheep, goats and ducks. They come for the herding, but most end up taking part in the camaraderie of like-minded folks who want to do something totally special with their canine best friend and do it in the fresh air and great outdoors of the rural Wisconsin countryside.
Life at the farm entails much more than just PRIVATE LESSONS.
Also offered here are:
Magic's Legacy is a working farm
where I raise my own sheep, goats and ducks
specifically to work with dogs in-training.
I take great pride in my flocks
and work hard to be
a good stockman and shepherd.
Spectators are always welcome at the farm to either watch lessons or see what's going on at any of the instinct test or trials. You can learn a lot about herding -- and the people who love herding -- by simply stopping by.
It's positively thrilling to see a dog do what he was born to do! I work with all breeds of herding dogs (and the different mixes of those breeds) to help them reach their own potential.
Magic's Legacy is a full-time occupation for me and I feel very fortunate to work at something I feel so passionate about. I've worked with herding dogs professionally since 1990 and have a great love in sharing my experience and that passion with my students.
The working farm of Magic's Legacy is located outside Genoa City, WI, near the IL/WI state line. Folks from all over Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin come regularly for lessons. Our trials draw competitors from all over the Midwest.
