Good video~I like tying to the fence and letting them watch the show first, then letting them gain access to the stock.

I like that she mentions about names sounding too close to commands. Also like mention that pups take time to learn. I would like reference to how to get more info through videos. Also, what if you don't already have a working dog to teach pup?

could have used more specifics, how to train for specific commands/jobs, tools for training, such as whistles, shock collars?, specialty harnesses, I have 2 dogs, 1 herding & 1 guardian, both are pups(5 1/2 mo. & 9 mo. respectively) I am looking for specifics

I agree with some of the others, she could have told us how to train a dog without the older dogs and also some training aids that might be used to teach stay, lay down, etc.
