sea4th Posted January 31, 2003 Report Share Posted January 31, 2003 I've never seen this particular dog work myself. It is a first BC for this person & a rescue one at that. He is 4 yrs. old. She's worked with 4-5 sheep at a time, never more than that. What she describes the dog as doing is when he gathers the sheep, if one will break away, he will turn his head and ignore it. He will politely turn his head when a sheep stands up to him, & again ignore it. The owner of the property has an Aussie that, when this dog is brought in to "settle" the sheep, the BC transforms himself into a gutsy gripper. Once the other dog is taken out, back to the "I'd rather avoid confrontation" behavior. Based on my descriptions, what are we dealing with here & possible solutions please. Thank you.
