This is a very important tutorial! It's packed with essential information to help you to understand, and look after your dog. It includes choice of breed, choice of dog or puppy, housing - and what dogs to avoid. There's a wealth of information on how to prepare your pup or young dog for herding sheep, cattle and other livestock.

For a long time now we've wanted to update our "First Steps" DVD set because our training techniques and understanding of sheepdogs have improved immensely since the DVD's release.

This video presents most of chapters one (the introduction) and two, from the DVD set. It's fairly heavily modified and now nearly 30 minutes long! We're sure those of you who've seen the old version won't be disappointed.

Sheepdogs Time Out!

A great opportunity to get to know our sheepdogs - at work and play!

Following on from the very popular An Insight Into Pack Behaviour video - and while we put the finishing touches to our latest sheepdog training tutorial, we thought we'd give you a real treat!
"Sheepdogs Time Out" comprises of no less than four great chapters from our DVD Border Collie Sheepdogs & Friends - Still Off Duty, and is a shade under 17 minutes of fun and training with our dogs.

This tutorial's a little different from usual as we're looking at dog behaviour, rather than training. "An Insight into Pack Behaviour" was originally a chapter on our "Still Off Duty" DVD, and is 33 minutes of our thoughts about what we see when we're out and about with our dogs.

We're not suggesting that it's the definitive guide to dog behaviour, but it illustrates much that we've seen and found useful when training a sheepdog. We're hoping you'll find it entertaining, as well as interesting, and we're also hoping it will stimulate some debate about what we see. All of us are learning, and none of us knows all the answers (except, perhaps our dogs).
