Learn to Herd! This introductory dog training video will help you overcome common problems that you may encounter when training your All Breed Herding Dog!
This movie is 43 minutes long. The beginning of this dog training video showcases a Border Collie and a Kelpie in order to explain and show how the strong eyed breeds work. The rest of the movie looks at upright, loose-eyed breeds and ideas regarding how to handle problems that are common with these breeds.
This movie literally walks you through the very beginning steps of training! It begins with the dog's first introduction to livestock and demonstrates several of the common reactions that are seen with upstanding dogs. It provides solutions to handle problems such as:
- quitting work,
- gripping, and
- splitting the stock.
Once the dog begins balancing and working for their handler, the movie goes on to demonstrate what skills are needed to begin arena type trials, and how to teach your dogs these skills. This dog training DVD will help you feel confident when you are training your dog on your own. Your newfound confidence will increase your energy, enthusiasm and success when competing. Making competitions more enjoyable for you and your dog!
"I highly recommend the Downriver All Breed Herding videos, both to novice handlers and also to more experienced handlers who cannot work with a trainer as regularly as they would like. With the wide variety of drills shown, there are at least a few drills at each skill level that will click with every herding team out there, no matter what level of experience." -Cathy Kudryk
