The book was great. Informative about each dog's personal temperment, personal characteristics, his children's interactions with his dog's, and the sheep dog trails he participated in. I just wish the Year of The Working Sheepdog videos, by same author had a better quality sound, especially after being so satisfied with the book

If you have a border collie or love border collies you will enjoy hearing about them in this story. I love the way he writes and I love "Mist" movie and shows for my little children.

Shepherding with sheepdogs - informative, funny, gritty and generous, this book would be enjoyed immensely by animal fans but likely a very rewarding read for anyone at all.
