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 for anyone who is beginning to work a herding dog or who is considering purchasing a Border collie.

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!!

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.

I purchased this book so I could stop borrowing a copy from a friend. A very comprehensive and informative training book. I refer to it daily.

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.
