kimkathan Posted June 18, 2007 Report Share Posted June 18, 2007 I have a 3 y.o female who is a wonderful farm dog, my only complaints with her is that she'll push a down and she's WAY too fast. Now, if I had the first, I could work on correcting the second. She does know what down means, but is either excited or worried that the stock is getting away. I have tried blowing through the sheep, but this just seems to wind her up more. I have also tried putting her on a long line (bad experiences, she ends up hog tying herself every time) I have a smaller training area 100x100 and she is better, but still far from good in it(takes a couple of times then a growl) Out in a field, she's totally off til she gets within 150' or she's driving (things are slower and she can push) She'll drive for miles and down (although be it fast, but I can work on pacing with her downing) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
