One Man and His Dog is Back

Sheepdog trials

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
