Sheepdog Selection and Preparation

Chapters 1 & 2 from the DVD set First Steps in Border Collie Sheepdog Training

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 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.

  1. Hi Andy,
    I’m looking into buying a new pup and I love German Shpherd dogs. Do you think it’s a bad idea (or too much unnecessary hard work) to try and train a GSD for sheep herding?

    1. German shepherds are not recognised sheepdogs in the UK. As far as I know they are not used for gathering, in the way that’s familiar to us. I think you’d be hard pressed to get one to work well with sheep, but we have very little experience with German Shepherds, so we don’t feel qualified to advise you, really.
