The benefits of taking your dog herding

Play Video

In this NDTF segment, dog trainer Lara Shannon, visits Diggers Herding in Melbourne to find out about the benefits of taking your dog herding.  Particularly, for working dog breeds to help fulfil their innate desire to chase and herd, herding can help address some common behaviour problems in these breeds.

Pooches canine co-host, Dynamite Darcy, also gives it a go to show that herding is not just for working dog breeds either. Any dog that likes to chase or has a prey drive will get great benefit from a day out at a herding class.
