I got my dog from Border Collie Rescue and wanted to work with him at herding, but I had -no- idea where to start. L.A. is pretty short on sheep and meadows, so when we -could- work with sheep I wanted to be prepared and make the best of that time.

Each chapter is written by a different veteran sheepherder: all of them offer good advice, but each has a slightly different take on how to approach different situations. They generously share the tips and tricks that they have learned over the years. This pool of experience is the big difference between herding books written by one or two authors and this large collection of working herders. Some chapters addressed the specific issues I had (like where to start!) and all of the chapters contain good, practical information. Even experienced herders will find something useful here.

If you're new to herding and trying to get your head around how to start training, this book is a great place to start. Good for any type of dog you want to work with -- it's not just about BC's!

Pretty good little book. For those of you looking for help training your dog, a number of the trainers interviewed in the book give border collie training clinics, private lessons, etc.
