A simple training ring of the correct size, will make training your dog a lot easier
A two-part tutorial. One of the most useful assets that help us to train a sheepdog is the sheepdog training ring. It’s very much more versatile than you might think. A properly constructed training ring will make the early stages of training your dog so much easier.
Trainee sheepdogs tend to chase the sheep, who (very wisely) run away. Both dog and sheep can run much faster than sheepdog trainers, so this means the ‘action’ is happening too far away for us to keep the situation under control.
A correctly sized training ring is simple to make, and will transform the early stages of sheepdog training. It can also be an extremely useful aid when it comes to teaching the dog more difficult tasks later on. In these videos, we find out what the optimum size is for the ring, and how to adapt it for more advanced training.
