    honest I think the first thing that went wrong was my concentrating too hard on getting photographs and not controlling Bronwen with quite the discipline I should have She brought the sheep to me very nicely but when I knelt down to get a low viewpoint it meant my attention was off her So she took advantage of the opportunity to add some artistic licence to her performance As a result she got pretty well wound up and when I asked her to get the sheep out of a particularly tight corner we have she didn t want to go round them and who can blame a young dog in this position There s nowhere for the dog to go between the sheep and the hedge Instead she split a handful of them away then when they raced off down the field Bronwen was determined to bring them back A study in concentration Bronwen watches every move the sheep make just in case I was equally determined that she would ignore the runaway sheep and concentrate on finishing the job I d given her getting the sheep out of the corner I still had the camera in my hands and because of this I didn t have the training stick with me so we stopped training and returned to the house to swap the camera for the training stick By the time we returned the sheep were back together in the corner so I asked Bronwen to get them out and just as before she split them rather than bringing them out cleanly Things improved immediately though because blocking her with the stick gave Bronwen a stronger signal to go the way I wanted and quickly she began to learn that if she approaches the sheep wide and steadily they will move It s when dogs dart at the sheep that they freeze or panic and scatter in all directions By sending her to bring them out of the corner before they were too tightly rooted in there Bronwen s confidence built up quickly and soon she was moving the sheep out of the corner in a controlled fashion even if they were quite tightly packed in there I was pleased with her Sheepdog Training Videos Online Sheepdog Training Tutorials For a very small monthly or annual subscription watch many hours of expertly presented sheepdog training lessons Not just theory we show you what should happen and what to do when things go wrong You may cancel payments at any time and continue to watch for the period paid for More info Join NOW Back to top 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 Shop Top Contact Author Andy Posted on December 9 2015 December 10 2015 Categories General Interest News Pic of the Day Sheepdogs Puppies Training Tips Advice Leave a comment on Slow down you re cornering too fast

  • Sheepdogs At Work
    occasions various ewes challenged Ezra but without prompting he nipped each of them on the nose Just enough to show them he wasn t to be messed with I was impressed by his restraint Like Carew he was using just enough force to get the work done without being heavy mouthed Ezra s job was to keep this race full of sheep awaiting their pregnancy scans Since we last worked at Dean Farm for some reason a door had been removed from what must have been a feed room or calf pen in the corner of the sorting yard and sure enough on inspection was crammed with sheep It would be too much to expect any novice dog to go into that dark sheep packed hole and get them out cleanly so I popped the rope through Ezra s collar again and led him between the sheep and the wall to show him what was required It clearly worked because when a number of sheep got back in there later on I was able to give Ezra an Away command and he brought them out cleanly Considering this was his first attempt at working in a pen and that the sheep must be handled especially carefully because they are pregnant Ezra performed extremely well Most of the sheep had tremendous respect for him and the odd few that didn t quickly acquired one Ezra s work in the field was less than impressive but he ll improve with practice When we took the sheep back to the field though his excitement got the better of him He wasn t aggressive and his driving was good but for some reason he was reluctant to flank when the sheep went past the gate they were supposed to go through We managed to get the work done eventually but it was certainly not Ezra s best performance and while we struggled in the mud knowing there were people back in the yard waiting for the next batch of sheep I couldn t help wishing Carew was with us She s in her element with this kind of work Ezra will improve as his experience and confidence grow so overall I m really pleased with him The second bunch of sheep was much larger and spread between three very wet fields Because the work involved a lot of gathering I took Kay as the main dog with Bronwen as backup The work went without incident in fact Kay did such a good job there was very little for Bronwen to do so I decided to use her for pushing the sheep through the race Just as with Ezra Bronwen was nervous at first in the pen but she improved as time went on There wasn t much for her to do though The second batch of sheep were much more familiar with the narrow sheep race and happier to go through it The important point is that we got the job done without undue

    runs to finish As the sheep were being taken off I went to the Judge s car to tell him that I wouldn t be running Kay The judge on the day was John Thomas who s still respected as one of the top handlers in the world despite no longer being in the first flush of youth as it were I ve known John for many years He s highly knowledgeable fair and speaks his mind As he saw me coming towards his open car window his face lit up and he said That was your fault you know don t blame the dog she s a good dog I must have looked a little confused because he added Your sheep were trotting off to the left and she saw them She was only going to get them for you Don t blame the dog it was your fault My immediate reaction was to agree with him How foolish I hadn t realised it but Carew clearly saw the sheep going to the left and she d gone to get them By the time I d walked back to the car though I d changed my mind Surely right or wrong the dog should obey it s command Carew should have outrun to the right wherever the sheep were and whatever they were doing If you start to let your dog ignore your commands chaos will ensue Carew has plenty of power for trials or farm work Here she s facing a stubborn ewe Click to enlarge Head held high Carew has moved forward despite the ewe trying to face her down The ewe turns away Click to enlarge I could see John s point though It was comforting to think that Carew was just doing her job but it threw up lots of questions not least of which was how I could stop her crossing over on her outrun in future trials As I drove home I relived those chaotic few moments in my mind time and again Just as at Clun Valley Sheepdog Trial Carew had indicated her intention of going left very clearly on the way to the post If she d stopped behind the mound on the left of the course we d have lost a point or two but that s insignificant compared to the disastrous loss of points or possible disqualification we d have suffered for the multiple crossing over episode I haven t mentioned the video have I Yes there s video evidence I placed a little camera near the windscreen of the car before Carew s run in the hope that I might be able to review it later Looking through the windscreen as it was it was only ever going to be of poor quality and conditions on the trials field were quite misty too but as long as I could make out the dog and the sheep I thought the footage might be of some use As I sat out in our field with the dogs and a glass of wine that evening I remembered the video but it wasn t until much later that I managed to motivate myself to watch it Everything looked fine as we walked out to the post except that Carew seemed very keen to go left I d noticed one or two sheep slowly moving to the left but despite this I set her up on my right While I was looking down at her the whole bunch of sheep began trotting smartly to the left I sent Carew off but she crossed over The evidence was incontrovertible Whatever the sheep were doing Carew should have obeyed me and gone Away Watch the short video of Carew s outrun This morning while I was out in the glorious sunshine with the dogs once more my mind went over the events yet again Surely this was covered in our Close Work sheepdog training tutorial Words to the effect that if you give a command the dog should obey it but if that command proves wrong a dog which has the sense to correct it should be commended I dismissed this because Carew had clearly gone the wrong way but within seconds I realised that she HAD obeyed me briefly She d clearly set off in the Away direction and then crossed over Of course none of this is conclusive but I feel I ve misjudged Carew and yesterday s abortive run at Penybont opens up the old controversy of whether a good trials dog can make a good farm dog and vice versa Gill reminded me that if Carew had been gathering a flock of sheep in a farm situation and I d erroneously sent her the wrong way I d have been delighted if she d shown enough initiative to cross over and correct the situation but crossing over at a sheepdog trial is seriously penalised Some judges even disqualify the dog for it Carew certainly has the finesse required of a trials dog and she doesn t lack power in a farm situation so she seems to have the best of both worlds but unless I can stop her crossing over on her outrun we might as well forget sheepdog trials A dog takes the sheep down the course towards the fetch gates Note the mound on the right where the dog loses sight of the sheep if it goes left on its outrun Click to enlarge Let s face it though if I d been concentrating once I d seen the sheep making their way from the peg I should have waited to see what happened If I had I like to think that I d have changed my mind and sent Carew left under the circumstances but arguably the letters out should have kept the sheep on the peg That s their job With the sheep trotting so far away if I hadn t sent Carew off it s likely the judge would have told me to wait until the sheep were back on the peg or even awarded a re run but instead I hastily committed to the run by sending Carew the way I d previously decided would be best completely ignoring the fresh evidence For the future my conclusions from this are 1 Don t make the final decision about the direction of the outrun until you reach the post and can see what the sheep are doing 2 In Carew s case unless there s a strong reason to send her one way or the other if she shows a clear preference for one side send her that way she probably knows best 3 Listen to John Thomas what he doesn t know about sheepdog trials isn t worth knowing Home page Sheepdog Training Videos Top Author Andy Posted on September 7 2014 January 28 2016 Categories News Sheepdogs at Work Training Tips Advice Trials Articles 3 Comments on Farm Dog vs Trials Dog Training Really Works Carew s performance is vastly improved at Evesham SDT I ve got quite a soft spot for Evesham Sheepdog Trials The Open at Evesham was the first sheepdog trial I ever attended albeit as a spectator It has a long history is always efficiently run and has a friendly atmosphere Carew and Kay both look pleased after their runs while Gill watches the action on the field Click to enlarge Some of the top handlers in the world compete at Evesham and the trials raise a huge amount of money for cancer research each year I understand that last year more than a thousand pounds was collected for this excellent cause Traditionally the trials consist of a local novice event on the Saturday for eligible competitors living within a sixty mile radius of Evesham church clock tower with the main Open trials taking place on the Sunday With both Kay and Carew being novice dogs never having won an Open trial and living well within the required distance I entered them both some months ago for both trials but when Carew went lame recently I was very worried that she wouldn t be able to compete Gently does it Carew brings the sheep around the post at Evesham Local Novice Sheepdog Trial Click to enlarge Poor Carew couldn t understand why suddenly I didn t want her to do any sheep work and only took her out with the other dogs towards the end of their run when they were quite tired It paid off though because by Friday she seemed perfectly fit and I decided to run her in the trials As regular readers will know I ve been trying to put more pep into Carew s trials performance recently by giving her all the encouragement I can to speed up when she s working at home The problem lay with her outrun she would often stop on it losing a lot of points and then particularly at the top of the field she was indecisive lifting and bringing the sheep too slowly She showed quite an improvement at Mathon Sheepdog Trials in mid July so my efforts appeared to be working and I ve been further encouraging her on a lot more since until she injured her foot that is There s always a good attendance at Evesham Sheepdog Trials Click to enlarge Carew s shown so much improvement in fact that I was a little worried she might go too fast in her next trial but I decided it was a risk worth taking The Local Novice class at Evesham begins on the Saturday afternoon and it was in glorious sunshine on the ninth of August that Carew and I walked out to the post for her run I d made certain she knew where the sheep were and duly sent her off to the left Interested in Sheepdog Trials Watch great video tutorials on Sheepdog Trials how they re run and how to get started in them by subscribing to our Online Sheepdog Training Tutorials To my delight she did a superb outrun coming in nicely behind her sheep perhaps stopping the tiniest bit early if I m brutally honest then smoothly lifted the sheep and brought them down the fetch and through the gates in superb style Her pace was vastly improved compared to previous trials but still a teeny bit slower than I would have liked Never mind though this was excellent progress Carew brought the sheep around the post in tidy fashion and set off on the first leg of her drive still very neatly The sheep passed through the gates but the duffer giving the commands mis read the situation and not realising the sheep were clear of the gates allowed Carew to drive the sheep on further thus putting them well off line for the cross drive When we finally managed to part the sheep Kay came through immediately Click to enlarge As though this were not enough I over compensated and by the time the sheep reached the right hand drive gates they were too far to the right Fortunately I was able to get Carew to bring them back onto line and all went through the gates She turned them reasonably well and brought them to the shedding ring without further incident but here the five North Country Mules proved very difficult to part Eventually though we created a gap and Carew came through instantly when I called her I ran to the pen from the shedding ring because I realised we must be getting short of time This was a good run compared to the others I d seen so far and I was determined to get as many points for the pen as possible but the sheep just didn t want to go into the pen We tried everything taking pressure off putting pressure on staying out wide coming in close all to no avail The judge called Time and all our pen points were lost A popular attraction at Evesham Sheepdog Trial was the beer keg Click to enlarge Never mind though I was very pleased with Carew s performance When I m training sheepdogs I like to see some sign of improvement no matter how tiny each time I take a dog out In Carew s case the improvement had been dramatic and convinced me that encouraging her to work rather too fast at home was having a good effect on her trial so this was special Carew still has an excellent stop so I m confident there are no detrimental side effects to her training programme and most important she seems to be fully recovered from her foot injury Jenny Atwell s Spice brings the sheep around the post at Evesham Local Novice Trial Click to enlarge Later in the trial Richard Smith who was judging and who is also the chairman of Evesham Sheepdog Society kindly let me take a photo of Carew and Kay s points from each section of their runs I was so proud to discover that Carew lost just one point off each for her outrun lift and fetch My misjudgement had cost us eleven points on the driving section and then we lost a further four when the sheep wouldn t part for the shed but worse still all ten points disappeared when we failed to pen the sheep in time Carew s seventy two points still amounted to a competitive score for a local novice trial though and I look forward to finding out how close she came to being amongst the leaders Kay s run was quite typical of her She has such a great talent but I really think she s finding sheepdog trials a little too much for her now that she s getting older It seems the more tired she gets the more her enthusiasm gets the better of her She proved difficult to stop for much of her run and wasn t flanking as wide as I wanted either Her points lost for each section don t read too well Outrun 2 Lift 3 Fetch 5 Drive 14 Shed 6 and Pen 10 timed out Kay was left with a total of sixty points a whole twelve behind Carew Evesham Sheepdog Trial has an enviable array of trophies on offer to the winners Click to enlarge Imagine my surprise when I arrived at the field on Sunday to find that Carew s Saturday run had earned her the Christian Salvesen Perpetual Challenge Trophy for Outrun Lift and Fetch What better confirmation that she s responding well to her special training Sunday was a completely different day to Saturday though The weather forecasters told us that the remnants of hurricane Bertha would bring heavy rain and high winds and they weren t wrong During the morning torrential showers drenched everyone and if the afternoon the wind coming straight down the field caused handlers to struggle at times to remain at the post I spent much of Carew s run holding my peaked hat on with one hand and holding the sheepdog whistle with the other Note the poplar tree With wind like this it s not surprising some handlers had difficulty standing still at the post Click to enlarge Carew had a wonderful run though I thought her outrun lift and fetch were as good as the day before and the drive was the best I think I ve ever achieved with any dog since I ve been competing in sheepdog trials Carew took the sheep straight to the first drive gate turned them quite tightly and kept them on a good line right through the second gates and bringing them nicely up to the shedding ring Evesham SDT Sunday 10th Aug 2014 Judge Bob Powell Open National with Single Thomas Longton Maya 95 OLF Adrian Hall Gwen 95 Richard Smith Glen 93 OLF Jenny Atwell Alice 93 Val Powell Cully 92 OLF Eamon Lawless Niamh 92 Novice National Class Jenny Atwell Alice 93 Angie Blackmore Charlie 91 OLF means that in the event of a tied score the place was decided by the number of points scored for the Outrun Lift and Fetch sections of each run Thanks to South Wales Sheepdog Trials Association for the results A total of seven points were lost on the drive which might seem a lot but on the day it compared very well with some of the very best runs The sheep were hungry and kept getting their heads down and eating causing most dogs to lose a point every time this happened On the shed we lost just one point so I was very optimistic as I ran to open the pen gate but here once more we failed I can t blame Carew she did everything I asked just the way I wanted it I don t even blame myself on this occasion For some reason most handlers struggled to pen these excellent sheep and although I m determined to get lots more penning practice in at home I think Carew and I worked well together Unfortunately not only did we lose the ten points for the pen but for this open trial there was a single where just one sheep must be parted and held away from the others too By running out of time poor Carew lost a whopping twenty points from her total There was no chance of picking up a place after that loss except possibly in the novice class but we must wait for the full results to appear before we know that The best place to watch the runs from during the torrential rain was your car Click to enlarge Was I disappointed Not at all I was overjoyed Carew had once more done a good outrun lift and fetch It seems she s got out of the habit of stopping on her outrun something I
