Carew Shows How to Pen Sheep!

Carew shows how to pen some reluctant sheep


We came across this short clip from a couple of years ago, and thought we’d share it with you. Notice that the task is much more difficult because Carew’s pushing the sheep into the pen on her own.

Border Collie Sheepdog Carew gently pushes reluctant sheep into a pen

Penning sheep is far easier for the dog if the handler stands closer to the pen (or even inside it) because the dog’s natural instinct is to bring the sheep to the handler. In this case, not only is Carew pushing the sheep away from the handler, they’re reluctant to go into the pen.

It’s no problem for a confident and experienced dog like Carew though. Notice how calmly she works.
