In tutorial number four Bronwen proves she's by no means perfect, but she continues to be a long way ahead of Scylla in terms of her reliability and sheep control.

Scylla's working much too close to the sheep. Her tail is still flying like a flag and she's far too aggressive with them.

Tiresome though she can be at times, there are signs of improvement, and even one brief moment that shows great promise!

  1. Hi Andy, will you have any DVD from this years series of tutorials available for Xmas. I cant see them on the website at all this year. OH I really hope so. My hubby is a member but never gets time to watch the videos each month so I buy the videos at the end of the year. Can you let me know
    Thanks Jen

    1. We didn’t think of the tutorial DVDs as an annual release, Jen (although it would be nice)! Volume 3 is in fact very close, but it’s much too late to release it before christmas I’m afraid. I gather you already have Sheepdog Training Tutorials 1 and 2, but have you got all of our titles?

      I know you love border collies, so if you don’t have it already, any one of those will be great entertainment for you!

      1. Hi Andy,

        Thanks for your reply. YES we have them all, I think Ive brought just about every dvd you have there now. Ok thanks, I hope it comes out soon. I guess I just presumed that since you release V1-2 prior to xmas the last couple of years that you would do the same. Shame, they make great Xmas gifts.


  2. Had wondered if you were going to show us how to manage two dogs at once. Can you tell me if you have any tutorials on that subject please…..whistles and commands. I’m trying to do it at present………….very difficult, especially because my older bitch is selectively deaf. Many thanks, I love these tutorials, well done.

    1. Let me make a confession David. The easiest way to work two dogs together is to teach them (from day one of their training) totally different commands from each other. I can do this, but being something of a “muddlehead” I find it very difficult to remember which dog’s on which commands – especially at times of crisis and when quick decisions need to be made!
      It may be because of the number of dogs I’m training at any one time – but I suspect this ought to make me better at it.
      One man who could certainly train two dogs to work well together was Glyn Jones – and his DVD “That’ll Do” is the only video I know of that clearly demonstrates how to teach dogs to work as a brace.
