This comprehensive book describes innovative ways of training sheepdogs and addresses a number of subjects that have not been adequately covered in previous publications; such as working with sensitive dogs and dogs lacking in confidence, the 'square movement', and the 'concept of opposites'. Written by an acknowledged expert, Sheep Dog Training and 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Nij has produced this fine book, which combines personal experiences with skilful guidelines for anyone wishing to be trained on how to train sheepdogs... it is one of the most entertaining and revealing books about a rural skill that I have ever read.' -- John Craven OBE, presenter of BBC Countryfile
'Nij has commendably, over a relatively short time, represented his country by achieving qualification for the English Team, going on to the International... something many people only dream of doing... To achieve this Nij's insight into the elements of the partnership between man and dog has enabled him to understand the particular characteristics of dogs, their problems and requirements and to foster, nurture and develop their individual potential.' -- Gwyn Jones, Three times International Supreme Champion
