  1. Hi Andy

    I saw you’re video on you-tube and would like to know if the video will work the same for an Australian Kelpie. We Farm with Dohne merino sheep here in South Africa and I need help since it will be my very first Dog herding sheep. What DVD’S do you recommend for me, the puppy is born 8 April 2016.

    Kind regard

    1. Hello Danie,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you’re a complete beginner with sheepdogs and sheep, then First Steps starts at the very beginning. First Steps explains how and why dogs work sheep, as well as showing you how to arrange your training area for the best chance of success. If you have some experience with sheep, then some of First Steps would be too basic for you (I imagine) so the Tutorials collections would give you more detail about starting a puppy or a young dog, and help you progress to a higher level of work and training.

      All of the DVDs we sell will teach you something about training your dog (or we wouldn’t stock them) but my advice would be to start with our own Tutorials DVDs and then watch Glyn Jones, Martin Penfold, Nij Vyas and Julie Hill to see a slightly different perspective or emphasis.

      We send DVDs all over the world, but South Africa poses a particular problem for us, with delivery being very unreliable. There’s no tracking available for post sent to South Africa once it’s left the UK – only the option to have the item signed for when it’s delivered, which doesn’t really help either me or the buyer to find out where it is.

      Have you considered watching the tutorials online? I realise that depends on your broadband speed, but you can test that by watching the sample tutorial that’s available if you register (for free) for the website.

      We’ve successfully used the techniques we describe in our tutorials with Border collies, Beardies and Kelpies, and we now have three Kelpies for training. We’ll soon be including footage of our work with the Kelpies in the online tutorials, either incorporated into Border collie tutorials or on their own.

      Thanks again for your interest.
