"Sheepdog Training and Trials is for all dogs and dog lover s not just for sheepdog owners and enthusiasts" - Amazon Review
"This comprehensive, invaluable book describes innovative ways of training sheepdogs, addressing a number of subjects that have not been adequately covered in previous publications, such as working with sensitive dogs, dogs lacking in confidence, the square movement method, & the concepts of opposites. The volume is brimming with practical advice that will help handlers to find solutions to difficult problems. Written by an acknowledged expert, Sheepdog Training & Trials discusses in a variety of settings new concepts such as the author's theory of 'passive resistance' and the 'pressure on/off' technique. In addition, the author considers ways of optimizing a dog's health, energy, fitness and peak performance. This book is essential reading for trialists along with those who wish to improve their sheepdog training techniques, as well as those who have a passion for border collies". Foreword by the Duke of Devonshire. Reviews by John Craven OBE, presenter of BBC Country File and Gwyn Jones, Three Times International Supreme Champion.
"For me, the real strength of this book is that it dares to delve deeply into dog and sheep psychology but always with the purpose of finding practical solutions to the inevitable problems you come across when training a working sheepdog." -
"The author is clearly knowledgeable about his subject and offers some interesting new concepts about training dogs such as the passive resistance theory and the concept of opposites." -
