Train your sheepdog to stop moving while remaining standing up
Overview: In this video learn how to teach your sheepdog the first stage of a quick, easy and definite “Stop There” command.
This tells the dog to stop moving, much like the “sit down” (lie down) command, but to remaining standing on it’s feet. In this episode I explain and demonstrate how to train this away from sheep, before then progressing onto sheep in the next episode.
