    1. Hello Yvonne. Great to hear from you, and to hear that you still enjoy the tutorials. I’m happy to report that your subscription was renewed on January 9th, so you’re ready for the next twelve months. Many thanks for your support. Kind regards, Gill

      1. My dog Cutter was born in April. I’m having trouble controlling him. He is very intelligent. Learns commands quickly but only wants to do them when there are no sheep. When sheep are around he turns his ears off. I have a round pen to work them in. Also my sheep are not real gentle. They don’t always cone to me. I have never trained a sheep dog. Have any suggestions on how to get more control??
        Thanks Charlotte

          1. Thanks I have watched about a third of the videos. I will work Cutter again tomorrow. He is not a gripper yet. I feel more confident after watching the videos.
