The long-awaited BBC’s One Man and His Dog is Back.
Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland take on the challenge on sheepdog trials at Hampstead Heath, London this year.
Here’s a little brush up on sheepdog commands. Try them at home!
- Come-Bye: circle the sheep in a clockwise direction
- Away/Away to Me: circle the sheep in an anti-clockwise direction
- Stand: stop, or slow down
- Get back/get out: move back to give the sheep more room
- In here: used during shedding to separate the sheep
- Walk up/walk on: move straight towards the sheep calmly
- Take time: slow down
- That’ll do: stop and return to the shepherd
