Bronwen struggles, Scylla’s horrible!

This third tutorial in our Bronwen and Scylla series, we compare training two young sheepdogs. Bronwen struggle to get the sheep into the training ring. Once the sheep are in, we see training sessions with both of the dogs in the ring on the same day. Bronwen is keen and confident, but she’s often over-keen and misguided. Scylla’s tail (and her aggression towards the sheep) demonstrate just how nervous she really is.
