Positive Herding 101: Dog-friendly Training

Positive Herding 101: Dog-friendly training by Barbara Buchmayer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Herding dogs can be a valuable asset and companion to a rancher and his operation. Positive Herding 101 dog training book introduces the author, her personal experiences, expertise, and journey towards positive reinforcement dog training with real life examples. Each chapter explains in simple terms the solid foundations needed on which skills and lessons outlined in subsequent chapters are built. The training techniques, although for teaching the dog, are principles easily transferable to other animals, including the livestock themselves! By default, we also learn how to appropriately respond to stressors and pressures in our own lives. The photos and illustrations add helpful insights to the narrative. Great book!
