As Jim Poor and Nina know, when you shoot herding trials, the best "action" isn't necessarily the best picture of appropriate behavior in the ring. For example, the following is a cool picture of canine carnivorous activity but not an image that I'm likely to sell to the owner of that dog. This is, in fact, a bad dog.
This, on the other hand, is a good dog. Not nearly as exciting an image but, when it comes to herding, exciting is not the objective
. This is a good dog.
Wait until Sundance starts herding later this year. Then I'll show you some photos of a very bad dog!!!
