Put your sheep in place before you start training
New sheepdog handlers who’ve built themselves a training ring, are often faced with a seemingly insurmountable problem: “How can I put my sheep into the training ring if I don’t have a trained dog?” It’s a fair question! And it needs to be answered before you can start training.
“Getting the Sheep into the Ring” will show you how to do just that, even without the use of a trained sheepdog. As usual, you’ll find other useful information along the way to help you with your sheepdog training.
Sheep can be particularly difficult at times, especially when they’re being herded towards an enclosed space, such as a sorting race or training ring. This 20 minute tutorial demonstrates several methods you can try, depending on your individual circumstances and resources.
There’s more information about sheep in the Sheep Behaviour category on the video library, including “Sheep – Essential facts for trainers” and “Woolly jumpers” – what to do if you’re faced with a flock of escapologists! Or see “Why do some sheep run away from dogs and others don’t?” on our FAQ page.
Getting your sheep into the training ring is just the start!
