Book – Sheepdog Training and Trials

A complete guide for Border collie handlers and enthusiasts

Shepherd standing with his dogs, looking regal

This comprehensive book addresses a variety of subjects not dealt with in previous publications, including working with sensitive dogs, dogs who lack confidence, the "square movement" method and the "concept of opposites".

Nij Vyas' success in national and international sheepdog trials has proved the value of his empathic approach to dog training, characterised by his theories of "passive resistance" and the "pressure on-off technique".

In addition, Nij looks at ways of optimising a dog's health, energy and fitness for peak performance.

"Sheepdog Training and Trials" includes contributions from Aled Owen, Jim Cropper and J R Griffiths, examining the factors that have influenced them and helped to make them successful.

Containing beautiful photographs, easy-to-follow diagrams, case studies, training exercises and tips, this book is essential reading for sheepdog trialers, trainers, and anyone who wishes to improve their sheepdog handling as well as Border collie enthusiasts everywhere.

Sheepdog Training and Trials is the perfect accompaniment to Nij's DVD: Practical Shepherding. Give your dog the perfect start and order a copy now!
