Ok so we started herding at the beginning of summer 2009 (so coming up on a year)our trainer says we are almost ready to trial but we just need to clean everything up, you see shelly is very creative about how she herds her sheep, she tends to run in wide circles, as soon as the sheep turn there heads to me she goes off in her own little world.
Also she has just two speeds...... all out run..... or stopped. How did you'll team a "take time" or a "walk up"
So here is a video of our training class last weekend currently we are working getting her to stay focused by putting her in a down (which is VERY solid) every time she starts to spiral out.
Any suggestions ? Thanks all!
