Don’t just train your dog! Make yourself, a better trainer!
It’s all very well learning about the dog, the sheep, and the training area, but it’s just as important to think about some of the qualities required in a sheepdog handler (or trainer) and how to make improvements.
This tutorial is based on chapter five from the ‘First Steps in Border Collie Sheepdog Training‘ DVD set.
Topics covered in this video tutorial include the importance of moving around to encourage the dog to go in the direction you want it to, and a brief look at some of the traditional commands in common use, and a more in-depth look, at some of the tools we can use to make training much easier.
