The perfect sheepdog training DVD for you!


FROM CHAOS TO CONTROL! – “One of the best sheepdog training DVDs available”!

At last! A sheepdog training DVD that’s specially for beginners who want to train their very first sheepdog – and who don’t have the advantage of an already trained sheepdog to assist them. This programme was specifically designed for beginners and will give you more information on training a sheepdog than any other DVD currently available

Unlike any other herding sheepdog training programme you’ve ever seen before, “First Steps in Border Collie Sheepdog Training” really does guide you through the difficult early stages of training, even if you’re a complete beginner.

A professionally recorded sheepdog training DVD set, presented in a clear, easy to understand manner by sheepdog trainer Andy Nickless, from Worcestershire, England, this DVD programme demonstrates not only how to approach sheepdog training, but what to do when things go wrong (as they will for even the best sheepdog trainers).

A sheepdog training DVD like no other!

Sheepdog training as it  REALLY IS – you’ll see things going wrong, as well as right.

It’s the first training herding and sheepdog training video to explain simple but vitally important factors such as dog and sheep behaviour, as well as how you can set up the ideal training area to make training as simple and convenient as possible.

Whether you’re a hobby sheep keeper, smallholder, aspiring sheepdog trialler or farmer, this unique down-to-earth double-DVD clearly explains the natural instinct of the Border Collie Sheepdog and how (with patience, determination and simple preparation) it can easily be developed into a really useful working dog.
