Default Herding questions.

I'm interested on doing herding with my ACD mix. Won't be for a little bit because I'd like her to have a bit more experience with moving critters and taking directions from me before I set her on livestock. (We just go over to a group of prairie dogs and practice drop, sit, wait, and break. She's too busy staring at them to do anything else.)
First of all, is what I mentioned we do above good practice for herding or should we lay off it?
Second, anyone know of herding instructors in Colorado? Or a place I can look for one? I've had no luck...
And third, anything I should know about any aspect of herding? As you can probably tell, this is my first time doing this.

Our obedience trainer said this would be a good activity for her. This was when Kailey was six months old, but she couldn't give me any focus when other dogs were moving because she'd crouch down and stalk them. She was fine when they weren't moving, though. Made getting her CGC a bit interesting... :P
