5.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative
This book covers the basics of herding. It presents the concepts clearly and provides some good trouble shooting sections. The diagrams could be improved and I could do without the cartoons. They were very hard to understand. The author obviously knows herding dogs and conveys very well what it takes to make a good "working" dog. I would recommend this book...

3.0 out of 5 stars What I thought of "Herding Dogs"
Was a good book, if your into border collies and sheep trials. They make the book out to be a manual for all types of herding. All it really told about was sheep herding and told little about working cattle, and the author compared everything to border collies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most comprehensive, easiest to understand training book, Aug. 11 1998
This review is from: Herding Dogs: Progressive Training (Hardcover)
An excellent job of detailing often complicated and difficult scenarios encountered when training. I have purchased several copies to give novice handlers for a good introduction to the world of livestock and herding. I reference the book repeatedly for tips on problem solving. Thank you, Vergil!!

1.0 out of 5 stars violence against dogs, Aug. 27 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Herding Dogs: Progressive Training (Hardcover)
I have a real problem with the suggestion to training dogs using threats, violence, etc. It seems one could take the time to train a herding dog rather than use the boogie bag.
