Training your English Shepherd

The English Shepherd is a very intelligent loyal breed with natural instincts intact. Early 
socialization, training and rules to live by should be established early on. They respond well to positive motivation and reward base training. 

A poorly behaved dog is a problem for everyone. Nothing is more frustrating than attempting to corral a dog that will not “come” when you called. A well-trained dog is not only a pleasure to own, he is a goodwill ambassador for the entire canine community. A well-behaved dog is the result of the dog’s owner being willing to work with the dog regularly in a systematic manner. Obedience classes are available in most communities. Time spent training your dog is time well spent.
