Back to Forwards - online sheepdog training video

Walking backwards with the dog steadily bringing the sheep up to you at the pace you choose to move back at is one of the best exercises you can practice with a trainee dog.

It will improve the dog's stop, its control of sheep, its working pace and the distance that the dog works from the sheep.

In this tutorial, we go a stage further and turn our back on the dog.

Once you can trust the dog to bring the sheep steadily up behind you as you walk forwards, your training will have moved onto a new level.

  1. Hi Andy, I’m a bit puzzled about the lie down command. Is it meant to get the dog to stop and just stand still, or that the dog should lie on the ground …… or both?!! Thanks
