Welcome to the Sheepdog Blog!

With all the bad weather we’ve had recently in the UK, we thought it would be good to have a blog so that we can keep people in touch with what’s going on, like sheepdog training courses, the availability of puppies and news from Kings Green Farm, generally.

Please keep in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you about border collies and especially sheepdog training.

We’d also value your comments on The Working Sheepdog Website.
Best wishes, Andy and Gill.


Beginner’s Training DVD

First steps in border collie sheepdog training dvd

Find out how to train your very first sheepdog with the minimum of assistance from anyone else.
When we began training sheepdogs many years ago, we longed for a book or video which would show us not just how to train a dog, but what to do when things go wrong in training. After all, training doesn’t always go to plan, even for the best trainers in the world, so why try to hide it?
There was nothing of the kind available at the time, so we decided to make our own – and we never looked back!

  1. Greetings from Australia. We have been watching the training videos avidly since becoming ‘parents’ of a young red kelpie (our third). We thought it would be interesting to see what ‘proper’ training would do and the videos have been a huge help.
    Of course our blood pressure was well and truly up when we trawled through the reports on your efforts with just one kelpie! Like any dogs there are just as many differences within the breed as between breeds as you know.
    Our kelpie is coming along well with her lessons; she’s very strong, determined and energetic. We would love to send you some photos of her training if you can advise how we may do that. Regards Lesley and Kym Abbott, Eden Valley, South Australia

    1. Thanks Lesley and Kym – good to know you find the training tutorials useful.
      I’m glad to hear that your kelpie is coming along well. We’d be very interested to see photos (or even better, video) of her working sheep.
