The NZ bestseller revised and updated. The working dogs of New Zealand certainly deserve our respect. Generations of careful breeding have produced the traits of stock-handling skill, loyalty, hardiness and courage that are now inherent in their bloodlines. This book has been written to assist those who use working dogs to handle livestock and provides a practical, step-by-step guide to training them the natural way.
