Selecting And Training The Working Farm Dog
by Christine Hartnagle-Renna
ABOUT HERDING DOGS
My passion for herding dogs led me to write this book. I have been around herding dogs all my life. My family and I value and depend on the inherent versatility and trainability of our stock dogs. In this book I share with you the group of dogs that have evolved over time to handle specific situations.
These highly social working breeds have been an important part of livestock industries for centuries. They come in many different shapes and sizes, colors and coats. However, you will learn that they all share the natural desire and ability to control the movement of other animals. Watching herding dogs in action is exciting and fascinating.
A herding breed can be a nice choice for a family pet too...these dogs are loyal and intelligent and make terrific companions. They respond brilliantly to training. I grew up with herding dogs, raising and training Australian Shepherds with my family for our daily ranch work. With you I share my knowledge of and experience with the training methods we use, from the basics right up to advanced methods.
Whether you’re training farm dogs or enjoying a herding companion, I have included a little something for everyone: advice on selecting the breed that will fit your personal situation as well as discussions on training, care, nutrition, and first aid.
I hope you enjoy my book,
Written by Christine Hartnagle-Renna, this 160 page book (6.75" x 8.5") is full of beautiful full-colour photographs!
