Working in the corner

Teddy is a robust red and white male Border Collie. He is owned by Chuck. Chuck has been very faithful about coming out her at least twice a week to work his dogs. He has progressed quite a bit since he has been coming out here.

A couple of days ago, we worked on Teddy getting sheep out of corners. It was tough for him because as soon as he hit the pressure point he would not go in but flank back out.

We spent the lesson on working with Teddy to go into the corner and lifting the sheep out, Then we made him lie down in the corner and push them out, straight on to us.

After a bit, he was confident and did quite well. We were pleased with his progress so quit.
