The Natural WayThe Natural Way of training sheepdogs using the dog's own language. The dog is a pack animal and responds to his innate instinct to hunt. Julie shows you how to harness this instinct to aid working stock. Adapt behaviour through using pressure/release techniques, to communicate with your dog using 'The Natural Way' method. The Natural Way encourages the dog to WANT to work for you, promoting mutual trust and respect.
