Sheepdog training and Trials Published by Crowood Press
“Sheepdog Training and Trials is for all dogs and dog lovers not just for sheepdog owners and enthusiasts” – Amazon Review
“This comprehensive, invaluable book describes innovative ways of training sheepdogs. It addresses a number of subjects that have not been adequately covered in previous publications, such as:
Working with sensitive dogs
Dogs lacking in confidence,
The square movement method
The concepts of opposites.
The volume is brimming with practical advice that will help handlers to find solutions to difficult problems. Written by an acknowledged expert, Sheepdog Training & Trials discusses in a variety of settings, new concepts such as the author’s theory of ‘passive resistance’ and the ‘pressure on/off’ technique. In addition, the author considers ways of optimizing a dog’s health, energy, fitness and peak performance. This book is essential reading for trialists along with those who wish to improve their sheepdog training techniques, as well as those who have a passion for border collies”.
