  1. Are you using a shock collar and claiming it to be a humane training method? Or is this some other type of collar I've never heard of that's enjoyable for the dog and still stops it chasing sheep? I'm also interested, does the dog still exhibit this behaviour once the collar comes off?

  2. Remote Training Aids works, the only problem is it costs a lot of money to buy those damn collars. Sigh. I guess I will have to invest in them to fix the issues with my dogs. Too many kangaroos around here!

  3. I'm not an expert so I'm gonna ask some questions and doubts.
    What it seems to me in the first place the owner is giving treats in a context that she is not controlling. She gives treats to the dog for coming to her, but the picture seems the dogs feels "we are going herding and she gives me treats". I mean she should have split the positive process in smaller and significant steps. For example the treat shouldnt be for just checking in but for going away both dog and handler together in the opposite direction of the sheeps. But before that i think the dog should have been trained in smaller and easier steps like "stop and wait" , sit or lay down, come here (go the opposite direction and go away) when both are aproaching livestock pressence from 200 m away. Then 100 m and so on.
    Expecting the dog to change a behaviour in the near pressence of the high rewarding stimulus has no use, in my opinion.
    I dont know about the e collar use. I know there exist professionals that know how to use it. I wouldnt use it because I dont know how. My dog is a high driven border collie mix, she loves to run and chase things. My approach is to teach her many behaviours to do instead of chasing and run, and then take them to context little by little. She's learning to look away and get back in the presseence of cats, other dogs, birds, ducks, and so on we find in the road. Also with horses and cows but they are less common in our walks. Basically anything that excites her I try to detect from a long distance before calling her to practice.
    we practice "look at me" , come, lay down, sit, steady, lets go, come here, and whatever self control behaviour a (for example) border collie could do at work. Or a hunting dog that must behave as a non hunting pet at this moment.
    So why didnt she approach this way?
    The difference I see is that your training seems to get fast results. But anyway even training a herding collie takes a long time to display such amazing skills.
    I guess some owners just want the behaviour to change and dont need a high skilled dog for it's not for work in that cases. But I love challenging myself on developing the best and most versatile obedience of my dog in the most diverse situations. (She's not a working dog and i'm not any expert. I'm trying to introduce her in agility to make something in life with his drive and intelligence). Anyway , while ibsee changes in her with my training, as a non-expert and novice i can not tell mine is the best aproach in the world.
    So are you advicing the owners to try to drive their dogs to manage different behaviours or cues in situations or there is an urge to just correct the behaviour in the first place?
    thank you.

  4. get the dog out and about as early as possible alongside sheep and cows and whatever your going to be walking or working amongst , treating dogs everytime they do something is total crap , never rewarded a dog with treats ever only praise and never had a dog attack livestock only the prey animals they are supposed to catch , laziness on the owners part when they are pups are the cause of the problems 99% of the time

  5. I just wonder about maintainance. How long the non shasing actitude would keep for, as one mistake can make everything go down to pots! Very impresive video and obviously you know what you are is the shasing behaviour what is modified so in my opinion it would not mater what kind of live stock or unicorns he is shasing . He would not do it. Well done . I life in newcastle do you know any trainier near here?

  6.   So the dog does not chase sheep . So what? What about "impulse" of  chasing, children, cars, bicycles, motorcycles,  kangaroos, unicorns.,…..  And what about when the stimulus of the distraction is greater the the treat we are giving to the dog.  Are you going to go through same approach? That is totally ridiculous. It is amazing to me how some trainers in name of PC   or from fear of AR insist to train with one arm tied behind the back. 

  7. Thank you for your constructive criticism. If you watch the following 26 min GSD chasing sheep video, you might find the answers you're after, though please do not feel obliged to 'waste your time'. We do not provide 'dummies guides' on youtube … The dog deserves a little more effort on the part of the owner than that. Thanks for you comments,but you appear to have forgotten to tick the 'dislike' button?
