As the owner of two obsessive but outstanding herding dogs, I found myself nodding along in agreement with this book from start to finish. Dawn offers tips to allow a handler to work with, rather than against a dog s herding instincts and her easy-to-read writing style and the depth of information she shares makes this book a must read for anyone who works or lives with herding dogs. –Nicole Larocco-Skeehan, CPDT-KA and member of the Board of Directors, CCPDT
A super resource that explains how instinctive behaviors impact dogs in their every day activities. I especially like the training tips very clear and helpful explanations to manage problems often brought out by a variety of herding instincts. –Lynn Leach, owner of Downriver Stock Dog Training and creator of the popular All Breed Herding DVD series
A wonderful mix of training information, management suggestions, psychology, and commonsense advice for herding dog owners. Easy to read and filled with gems of information for all dog owners like eliminating annoying barking! I highly recommend this book for trainers and owners of any breed of dog. –Gail Tamases Fisher, CDBC and author of The Thinking Dog
