teaching sides

Recommended Posts

Just wondering at what point in a dogs training do most people start teaching side?


I do not attempt to teach a side command untill my dog can outrun at least 200yards and drive away 100 yards with very few steady commands.

I believe that teaching sides too soon on a dog can take away alot of there ability to think about moving and controlling stock. Remember the object is to move stock from point A to point B with the least amount of stress to the stock as possible(unless you are late for a party ) as possible.

I pretty much fit in with Bill F.


I don't think "natural" flanks cause stress...or natural "work" of any kind, for that matter.
