    Episode 59: The History of Sheep and Herding Dogs in the UK with Natalie Soppard

    Episode 59: The History of Sheep and Herding Dogs in the UK with Natalie Soppard

    Natalie has spent almost her entire career in livestock farming having caught the bug at 11 while watching River Cottage and promptly obtaining an allotment and chickens!  She has run a commercial flock, been a contract shepherd and worked as a relief milker and calf rearer with experience of every type of system from conservation grazing and calf-at-foot to zero grazing and flocks into the thousands!  Fascinated by the relationship between people and animals she studied Anthrozoology to Masters level at Exeter University and her dissertation 'Coping with Sheep' focussed on how sheep bring resilience to Britain and could play a larger part in helping us 'cope' with changing global conditions.  She has published a few niche books including 'Man's Forgotten Friend: A History of the Ox' and 'The Eco Flock: Small Scale Shepherding for Uncertain Times'....and intends to do more!  A keen woolcrafter in her spare time with a penchant for dairy she currently has a tiny flock of shetland X BFLs for home milk and fibre production.The Eco Flock - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Eco-Flock-Small-Scale-Shepherding-Uncertain/dp/B0939XCKCW/ref=sr_1_1?crid=23YSFGZJ42QEK&keywords=the+eco+flock&qid=1697449297&sprefix=the+eco+flock%2Caps%2C75&sr=8-1Coping with Sheep - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Coping-Sheep-Roses-Anthrozoology-Dissertation/dp/1676761691/ref=sr_1_1?crid=9J30K7GE6HFB&keywords=coping+with+sheep&qid=1697449345&sprefix=coping+with+sheep%2Caps%2C78&sr=8-1Sheep origin/relationship genome study:https://bmcgenomdata.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12863-015-0216-x

    Episode 58: Alfie Unleashed: A Border Collie's Transformation Story

    Episode 58: Alfie Unleashed: A Border Collie's Transformation Story

    In this episode, we sit down with Laura, a dedicated dog owner, and her Border Collie, Alfie. Alfie's journey from a reactive, anxious adolescent to a confident and content companion is truly full of hope!

    At just 10 months old, Alfie began his journey as a student in the online membership program, The Collie Club. He is now 2.5 years old, and we will hear how he went from being reactive and fearfully of cars, other dogs, and anything that moved, to an off-lead, happy Border Collie who relishes his daily walks and even confidently walks on the road without reacting to passing cars.

    In this episode, Laura shares the pivotal role that two key components played in Alfie's journey: the Control Unleashed program and The Collie Club. She highlights the effectiveness of the Control Unleashed program in helping her understand and address Alfie's reactivity, providing valuable tools and techniques to manage his anxiety.

    Tune in to hear the inspiring story of Alfie's transformation and how the combination of Laura's dedication, the Control Unleashed program, and The Collie Club's supportive community made it all possible. It's a testament to the power of commitment, education and community in improving the lives of both dogs and their owners.

Hiiiiiii :) ,

So happy I found this!

This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! We have a Border Collie and feel like I can never stop learning about them. They’re my favorite and am so happy that I found this!
