  • Sheep - Part 8
    s not shearing time in the UK so there was no chance of watching an expert but I wanted to see some actual shearing to remind me of the proceedure I knew I should start with the underside of the sheep but wanted to know where to go from there and in what sort of order to shear the various parts of the sheep I did some research on the internet and was surprised to see there are some useful shearing videos on YouTube I also downloaded the New Zealand Wool Board Shearing Pattern would you believe Having studied this carefully I was ready to begin I thought I d shear just one sheep to see how it went and then take it from there We got the sheep in using Kay below and I selected the first victim Kay s the star of our DVD First Steps in Border Collie Sheepdog Training My first concern was to avoid damage to the sheep s skin and I m glad to say that any cuts were very minor indeed The secret is to keep the skin smooth don t allow it to wrinkle The first sheep seemed to take forever to shear and I m sure the sheep would agree too She struggled and I struggled but eventually the sheep got up and the fleece was there on the floor I was delighted Spurred on by my success I sheared another two sheep that evening but I was exhausted by the time I d finished them The following day I sheared another six before I was too tired to carry on Pathetic I know Professional sheep shearers can clip up to three hundred sheep in a day and I was out of it after six but I d bet they don t shear their first sheep at the age of sixty one We strongly recommend the 2xDVD set First Steps in Border Collie Sheepdog Training No other sheepdog training DVD contains as much information for beginners who would like to teach their first dog to control sheep Pictures and text on this page are protected by copyright laws and must not be reproduced without written permission from the copyright holder Home Blog DVD Store Book Store Top Contact Author Andy Posted on April 21 2010 February 3 2016 Categories News Sheep 3 Comments on Sheep Shearing By Numbers Posts navigation Previous page Page 1 Page 7 Page 8 MEMBERS AREA LOGIN Sign up WATCH SHEEPDOG TRAINING VIDEOS NOT JUST HOW TO DO IT See what to do when things go wrong Now approaching FIFTY instructional and entertaining sheepdog training videos Info Watch Preview Subscribe Subtitles Search SHEEPDOG TRAINING TUTORIALS Two volumes each on 2xDVD set Six hours of herding dog training instruction More info Tweets by SheepdogTeacher Categories Alfie s Blog General Interest News Pic of the Day SALES Puppies SALES Sheepdogs Sheep Sheepdogs Puppies Sheepdogs at Work Training Course News Training Tips Advice Trials Articles Recent Posts Pic of the

logged in Backwards is the way forward The Training Stick Walking backwards is quite tedious but it s one of the best ways to put some polish on your dog s work it shows the dog where you want it to be and teaches it self discipline Keep the dog back as you walk backwards and the dog will learn to flank wider too Good luck with the training Log in to Reply J Fenwick says December 10 2015 at 4 07 pm Hi Andy and Gill I have not long discovered your website but already I have learnt so much about how my 8 month bitch Bess needs to be trained She is just about to start the very early stages of training but she has been around the sheep for a couple of months already she is very strong willed both on sheep and at home but she has a 90 recall response and knows come bye away stop lie down and wait amongst the standard commands and I m confident she will be a great asset to me She has always looked back for me notices when a sheep breaks free and will go after it to get it back she also uses her voice when she comes across a sheep who wont move High spirits comes with erratic chasing selective hearing and the occasional gripping but although I correct her I am still aware she is a pup still and these moments will occur frequently whilst she is young I am very pleased to have found your site as I was reluctant to let her run with other collies as I don t want her to pick up any bad habits they may have Plus the collies round here are not trained to the standard I wish for Bess to be I was told I would have my work cut out to train her myself without a dog for her to follow and this concerned me that I would waste a good dog but your videos have filled me with confidence and I cannot wait to make a proper start with her Thank you again Jodi Log in to Reply Andy says December 10 2015 at 6 02 pm Thank you for your kind words Jodi I m glad you find the website useful for training Bess It s not a good idea to train a dog by letting it run with others because the trainee dog will learn the bad habits of the older dogs as well as the good points Believe in your dog be firm but patient and I m sure you ll succeed Please let us know how you get on Log in to Reply Daniele Lancini says November 1 2015 at 4 27 pm Hi andy After practicing for weeks on flanking and droving me and my young bitch are approaching driving She starts to
