The Sheep Dog : Its Work and Training
Tim Longton and Edward Hart
 
A classic UK sheepdog training book
 
This book, devoted mainly to the Border Collie, is a positive step towards the production of more food through the correct management and training of sheep dogs. In it, Tim Longton, a Lancashire hill farmer and one of the country's most successful trialists.
 
Tim Longton is so closely allied to his dogs that he know exactly what they are trying to tell him. It is this feel for his subject, brought out partly by examples of his own dogs' behaviour and partly by anecdotes about other famous Border Collies, which makes this book unique in its field.
