Carew Shows How to Pen Sheep!

Carew shows how to pen some reluctant sheep

We came across this short clip from a couple of years ago, and thought we'd share it with you. Notice that the task is much more difficult because Carew's pushing the sheep into the pen on her own.

It's far easier for the dog if the handler is closer to the pen because that way, the dog's bringing the sheep to the handler (following its natural instinct). Here, Carew is pushing the sheep away from the handler and they're reluctant to go into the pen. It's no problem for Carew though.
