  • Slow down you’re cornering too fast!

    Bronwen’s lesson in tackling sheep in tight corners I tore myself away from editing sheepdog training videos this morning, to take Bronwen to the sheep. Our poor dogs don’t get nearly as much training as they should do at the moment because we’re so busy making videos (and fulfilling DVD orders – and it was […]

  • Bronwen – play nicely with your brother!

    Bronwen with her “little” brother Odo. Bronwen (looking predatory, on the right) would really like to take possession of the dog disc, but she knows that we like Odo to have a chance with it sometimes. Odo has Ezra’s build (short legged and stocky) and he doesn’t have the svelte Bronwen’s acceleration, so often misses […]

  • Pic of the Day – Scylla and Oliver

    Pic of the day turns vid of the day – Scylla and Oliver in hot property dispute! The dogs have had some new toys recently, and this morning’s addition was a small, squeaky space hopper. (Those “of a certain age” will know what a space hopper was.) Oliver, who doesn’t usually play with toys, desperately […]

  • Pic of the day – Dulcie & Gloria

    Dulcie and Gloria – such devoted sisters! Just before Christmas, 2011, we bought a litter of well bred Border collies in readiness for training during the following summer. They were all individuals but, typical of litter mates, played together endlessly – and at high speed – whenever the opportunity arose. All the puppies, four females […]

  • Pic of the Day – Should a sheepdog play?

    Purists say sheepdogs should never play – we disagree! This is Ezra – one of the toughest sheepdogs we’ve known. He’ll work cattle as well as sheep, but (like his mother, Mel) he’s hard to stop. Unlike his litter sister, Carew, Ezra is pushing all the time – often too hard, but if you need […]

  • Pic of the Day – this is Isla

    Isla’s a complete “nutcase” but all the same, we’re very fond of her. When she came to us in the spring of 2014 she was as white as snow, apart from her face and a spot at the root of her tail, but now her body’s covered in “naughty spots”, and quite rightly too. One […]

  • Pic of the day – Here’s Scylla!

    Pic of the day – here’s Scylla Scylla is a sister to Odo (see yesterday’s post) and has the makings of a really good sheepdog now that she’s through that “difficult” stage that some young sheepdogs go through when they begin training. You can watch several videos comparing the training of Scylla and her litter-sister […]
