This comprehensive book describes innovative ways of training sheepdogs and addresses a number of subjects that have not been adequately covered in previous publications; such as working with sensitive dogs and dogs lacking in confidence, the "square movement," and the "concept of opposites."  Written by an acknowledged expert, Sheep Dog Training and Trials discusses in a variety of settings new concepts such as the author's theory of  "passive resistance" and the "pressure on-off technique."  In addition, the author considers ways of optimizing a dog's health, energy, fitness, and peak performance. This fascinating book presents contributions from four world-renowned handlers, including the twice world champion Aled Owen, that examine the factors that have influenced them and made them successful.
