It's really, really, really, really fun. If you don't have time to do it yourself I would definitely send the dog to a herding training camp one summer, where basically they work on a real farm and get trained. It's great because it helps them learn patience and to channel their energy, and teaches them instance obedience: something that's definitely important when yu have ad og that can jump a 12 foot fence and likes to chase motorcycles.
