Sheepdog Training Tutorial Video.
All our tutorials have optional English subtitles.
Hot on the heels of "What Shall I Do Next?" our latest tutorial shows an entire eight minute training session with nine-month old Gloria, a bright, enthusiastic young dog, and some well-dogged sheep.
As well as showing a typical dog in training, warts and all, the tutorial demonstrates some of the techniques that we've talked about in other tutorials, such as making use of the training ring; effective use of the training stick; reinforcing the stop, and flank commands; widening the flanks; taking the sheep out of the ring (whoops - the wrong way!) and dealing with gripping.
Whilst we couldn't describe Gloria's performance as polished, we saw much that was encouraging in her work. Over the course of the session Gloria begins to flank nicely, with no obvious favoured direction, and is keen, confident and committed. Gloria developed into a very capable working dog and, revisiting this lesson, we can see that all the signs were there.
Watch every moment of Gloria's eight minute sheepdog training session - first in slow motion (half speed) with a detailed commentary - and then at full speed for a more realistic viewing.
