Kay shows her daughter Jet how to get sheep out of a Spooky Black Hole!
Watch the VIDEO below!
There was quite a strong response on social media when we posted a picture of a rather nervous looking Jet outside a dark hovel which was full of sheep.
Jet was contemplating the task of going into the hovel to remove the sheep. It’s not a pleasant task for a trainee herding dog because the dog knows it will be trapped inside the building and if the sheep attack it, there’s no escape.
Usually, the trainee dog’s response is to attack the sheep closest to the entrance. In the ensuing chaos, most of the sheep will usually come out of the building, but often, the task has to be repeated to remove the remaining animals. Obviously, this is not good practice.
At the least, it stresses the sheep and makes any further handling or movement of them all the more difficult.
In this video, Jet’s mother, Kay demonstrates just how the job should be done, by quietly and confidently going round between the sheep and the wall. The sheep come out quietly with the minimum of stress.
