Sheepdog Trained to "Nursery Standard" on Sheep
This dog will now most probably be on both voice and whistle commands,
It will gather around 400 metres with the stock in sight, will drive sheep compentantly around a trials course, penning and in most circumstances but will still be learning to shed sheep and turnback on command.
This dog will not necessarily have any flock experience.
This dog will still be in the High School phase of its training, but is still very impressionable and could still easliy develop bad habits when introduced to new situations.
This dog will certainly be ready to GO TO WORK, provided that the handler continues to guide and encourage the dog to cement its confidence and reliability.
