A well-trained herding dog is among the most disciplined of all working dogs. An Australian Cattle Dog driving steers across wide-open plains, a Kelpie jumping over the backs of tightly packed sheep to get them moving again, or a Border Collie rounding up a flock of ducks at a show trial are impressive sights - graceful, single-minded, and in complete control. Herding dogs need jobs to do or they will become anxious and unhappy. When acquired as pets, herding dogs require skilled owners who understand how to draw out their best traits and satisfy their herding instincts. When acquired as true working or competing dogs, they require careful and consistent training. "Storey's Herding Dog Handbook" is the must-have reference for anyone who owns or would like to acquire a stock dog. Put a herding dog in charge of a flock of sheep set out to pasture, have him drive a herd of cattle into pens, or let him wow the spectators at competitive events. "Storey's Herding Dog Handbook" offers everything enthusiasts need to know to achieve every goal.
