Are you looking on advice on how to start a young dog?
The book " Talking Sheepdogs" would be a good option for you as you can read through the book and look at the diagrams, go to the field and check up whilst you are training!
Here is a review from one reader :Talking Sheepdogs by Derek Scrimgeour. Review by Ian Caldicott.
Talking Sheepdogs is different, one could say (to borrow a comment from Roy Goutte on the back cover) "revolutionary." The book is extremely well written and clear with the best diagrams I have ever seen. Reading it is entertaining, enlightening and thought provoking all at once. The first time through I recommend reading it like you would a good novel, in a comfy chair with a drink in one hand and time to read the whole thing. Then you will want to go back and read sections of it over and over.
This book is a paperback and is Black and White. It is illustrated throughout and size is 19cm x 25 cm, 128 pages
Price £17 inc postage
