Lindsaloo Posted June 29, 2012 Report Share Posted June 29, 2012 We went out to do Ziggy's herding instinct test this morning and immediately he showed strong interest in the sheep, but the whole time he was in the pen he remained in an upright position. He might've lowered his head a little, but he remained upright for the most part. The trainer said that he herds like her beardies and that he'll most likely always herd like that. So my question is, basically is this true and is there anyway to encourage him to go lower while herding. When we play at home he is constantly crouched down and stares at the ball so hard I think he might stare a hole all the way through. I've searched everywhere I could find for information, but thought maybe you guys would have some first hand experience with this issue. Also, what are the advantages and disadvantages of both styles on sheep and cattle? I plan on trialing him if all things proceed well enough. Thanks a ton!
