American Working Farmcollie Association


Different pups from different breeds and litters will need slightly different training methods, but  over & over the most experienced (and most successful) dog owners tell us that the best technique is to take the pup with you, every day, in as many daily routine situations as are safe.  Do yourself what you want the pup to help you with and, as J. R. McDuffie once said,

A good dog will try to help you!
