Thank you for another nice tutorial! I’m just wondering, how old is Tess in this video? I see a lot of the same mistakes that my 11 months old Kayleigh is making. :-)
Hi, What do you do if your dog isn’t afraid of the training stick? I have a 7 month old Welsh Sheepdog who I started on sheep a few weeks ago. He is extremely keen. We just have a couple of short sessions per week. I can get him to go around the sheep mostly rather than running at them now, but I’m struggling to get him to widen out and give the sheep space. I can whoosh with the stick all I want and even touch him with it, but he’s hardly bothered by it. Do you have any suggestions please?
Hi Andy, very good tutorial. My young dog is doing really well but at the moment I can’t get him to flank once he is at the point of balance. If I move, or the sheep do, then he will flank well but not if they are balanced. Is it something that will happen as he gains more experience or is there something I can do to help? Thanks Andrew
