thankyou fly30,her mother came from a working kelpie stud but her owners just kept her as a pet...we don't have sheep,so our 3 cows will have to do
Certainly, I don't contest her skill. I'm not skilled myself. I was just talking about the different ways of teaching. You said you had no place nearby but hope to be able to continue when you have your car. I think it would be a good idea to continue with your breeder. She knows your dog's breed and each breed works differently.I suppose everyone has their own way of doing things. Hauru's breeder competes in herding with her dogs so I guess she knows what she is doing even if I don't.
Oh, that's not how I meant it either Just that I don't know why it was done this way or that way. I was just walking around all "oooh sheep!!!" You are certainly right about the breeds being different, I couldn't imagine Hauru ever doing that BC staring thing for example.Certainly, I don't contest her skill.
