Sheepdog training – with a little help from Johnny Mercer?

Take a look at two complementary short tutorials, My Dog’s No Good and No Excuses Please!

My Dog’s No Good warns against falling into the trap of believing your dog will never make a good sheepdog. So long as it’s fit, healthy and keen, the only thing preventing your dog from achieving its potential is YOU! So if anyone tells you, “Your dog’s no good!” you probably need to reassess your training technique. And don’t be downhearted if your dog isn’t progressing as quickly as people tell you it should: every dog and handler combination is unique.

No Excuses Please! takes a different angle – the risks of allowing your dog to perform poorly, either because it’s easier to “just let him get on with it” or because you simply haven’t noticed. Be realistic, but always aim for accuracy and constant improvement. The more times your dog is allowed to work badly, the more confident your dog will become that:”This is how we do it!”

So, what advice does Johnny Mercer have for sheepdog trainers?

“You’ve got to accentuate the positive

Eliminate the negative

And latch on to the affirmative

Don’t mess with Mister In-Between.”
