Mari Taggart is a Border Collie trainer who both owned and worked with loose-eyed breeds at a time when herding training was almost entirely focused on Border Colllies. Her first book was Heeler Power: A Guide to Training the Working Australian Cattle Dog, published in 1984. She also wrote many articles for stockdog magazines, under several names: Mari Taggart, Mari Shaffer, and (latest) Mari Taggart Morrison. In secondary references her first name is sometimes mispelled as Mary. Sheepdog Training is long out of print, but it was popular enough that it is still readily available from used-book on-line dealers such as Alibris, Powell's, and Abebooks, and from smaller dealers via Amazon. It is still one of the best for the total novice with a loose-eyed breed of average, not awesome, talent, as this is her intended reader. The tacit assumption is that this novice is a "hobby herder" who wants to learn a fun new sport -- it is not aimed at producing a practical farm dog, although her teaching methods do not preclude this at all.
