A great read from the Working Aussie Source written by Rusty Johnson,
applying Doug’s philosophy to training a solid cattle dog.
“Gain control of his mind, and the body will follow”-Doug Jordan
“How do I know if a dog is broke? OK, I usually just take a long look at the dog and ask myself: is he supple? Can I push him out, pull him in, or fold him one way or the other without it being a big deal? You want to be able to do it without offending him. If you can, now you can insist on some mechanics (side commands).”
