ABOUT THE DVD

Practical Shepherding provides comprehensive guidance on selecting and training a sheepdog for farm work and sheepdog trials. Nij demonstrates many techniques and methods which have proven so successful in building strong foundations and trust with his dogs.

There are clear diagrams, guidance notes and tips to make it easy to follow and apply the methods. There is also an accompanying booklet providing further notes and clarification of the points contained in each chapter. It is ideal for both newcomers training their first dogs and experienced handlers who are experiencing problems.

The DVD follows Todd and Mist over 18 months; from birth, their first time with sheep, and culminating in working on a sixty-acre park with a large flock. Whilst Mist lacks confidence early on, Todd is more feisty and challenging. The subject of gripping sheep, amongst many others, is discussed at length. There is something here for everyone.

This is the perfect accompaniment to Nij’s book: Sheepdog training and Trials. Give your dog the perfect start and order a copy now!

Testimonial by Gwyn Jones, Three times International Supreme Champion:

“Handlers and trainers alike will find this video of great value. It comprehensively covers important stages, from puppyhood to an adult working dog.

Nij uses many of his own methods in the video. He begins with choosing a pup using a process that he has found to be very successful over the years. I think we can all learn from this, as it is systematic and one I haven’t seen before.

The video covers a variety of training methods including how he deals with gripping; not completely stopping the gripping or taking it out of the dog but by controlling it, only gripping under command. A method I practice myself.

In all, this is an original, thought-provoking and beautifully filmed video showing useful methods and techniques not covered before on training DVD’s.”
