New Video Tutorial: Why Your Dog Should Work BOTH WAYS

Cover picture of sheep and cattle dog training tutorial showing why your dog should circle the sheep both ways

A good dog must circle fluently both ways

Just as most humans are left or right-handed, the majority of herding dogs favour working in one direction over another. Often, sheep and cattle dog handlers are not bothered if their dog will only go in one direction to gather the stock, as long as it brings them successfully.

In our latest sheepdog training video, (duration 5.5 minutes) Andy demonstrates a typical situation which would go horribly wrong if the dog would only flank one way.
