Please have a look here:

Please click on the link of the first post and then "Zum Video" top right.

It´s German but I think you´ll understand the "movie".

The CsW Altai (Falin Zlatá Palz) was able to find the reporter (who drove away by car for 3 kilometer) only by sniffing her neckerchief before.

Hard work ... but really good work for Czechoslowakian wolfdogs

Cheers,
Angelika

Angelika, great video!!

Thank you for sharing. That looks like a fun activity to do with a CSV!

PS - Is that the same Ina on these forums?

Yes, but also very exhausting for the dog to "catch" the right smell-particle.

Tired is ok! As they say, "A tired dog is a good dog"!

I have not done "trailing" (air scenting, used for Search and Rescue and how AKC does their Tracking) with her, as I am doing Tracking, and if you teach a dog to air-scent first it is nearly impossible to get them to ground-scent without "casting" their nose in the air (a fault that loses you points in Tracking).
Once a dog has learned ground-scenting it is easy to teach air-scenting, so we are building our foundation with ground-scenting before I start air-scenting.
My plan is to earn SchH titles with her, so I am focused on that for right now.
As an aside, I taught my Malinois to ground-scent for SchH Tracking and a few months ago my friend's dog ran away - I was able to get him to air-scent and find the missing dog!

Default Second Herding Session with Luna

So we took Luna herding again on 1-1-11. She was INCREDIBLE. Here is a link to the channel with her videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/draggardevir#p
Just look for Luna and Herding in the label and click on it. I am the gimpy handler with the hat.
She did really super on the sheep - much better than my German-Bred GSD, Kiri, who wanted to EAT the sheep. Luna had to stay "out" away from the sheep more than the other dogs - seems that the sheep got "light" due to her wolfier body silhouette. They allowed my Malinois very close, but Luna had to stay further and they were more anxious to crowd to me.
Luna "galloped" more than trotted, around the sheep (the other dogs trotted), but did not give hard eye - in fact, she gave a lot of polite calmng signals to them.
I will continue herding with her and my Malinois - I think my GSD is a little too hard on the stock (not to mention a challenge for my novice herding skills). Luna is also super about understanding "pressure" - not only pressure in regard to the stock, but also me as the handler. She is very sensitive to my eye and movement - incredible. Can't wait to see how she develops...

She is about 25" at the shoulder. Don't think she is going to get any taller, but she is LONG. I was very surprised to see her Herding so well - I figured she would be a little more "predatory" on the stock.
My instructor, Judith Kelly, also insisted that her students there watch Luna to a "different" kind of herding behavior. She teasingly calls Luna "the Wolf" - my Malinois is called "Prince Charming" and my GSD is the "Hard Bitch"...
One of the students noted that Luna pooed and peed in the same exact spot in the ring... latrine behavior has been documented in wolves and some domestic dogs.
She was very "smooth" though, easy to work due to her sensitivity, so I think Herding will be a successful venue for us. Not sure, but she may be the only Herding Instinct Certified CsV in the US right now...

Since I started this topic more than a year ago, I would like to update a little about our adventures with our CsV whom we didn't have at the time.

Our dog has passed the first leg of his Herding Capability Test. At first we did it just for fun knowing that according to the answers on this post, CsV aren't really used or known for herding, but since he liked it so much we decided to continue lessons and classes. Our instructor was a really nice man who really liked our dog's enthusiasm. So maybe someday soon we will wrap up his second leg of the test with some additional training and be the first CsV to be titled in herding in the US.

In either case, as long as he is having fun, we will do it. We are also doing trailing as well, so we keep him a really busy dog!

Sorry for reviving old post but i had too. I dont think CsW should be forced to copy typical dog breeds in herding. CsW should do herding same as German Shepherd do it. When German Shepherds were herding dogs and not military / police dogs, in Germany they had big flocks, 500+ sheeps and no borders between private properties on big open fields. So many sheeps can do big damage if enter field which is not property of their master so German Shepherds herding consists of acting as living fance, dogs hold straight line and didnt let sheep break through, they even bite stuborn sheeps. Their role is also on corners and bridges and other narrow space where sheeps need to go through. There is even HGH title where mostly German Shepherd are on trials for it. Problem is its hard to distuingish if GSD interest in sheep comes from prey drive or herding drive, i guess that problem with CsW would be even bigger if its possible to do... Look some videos how GSD do it and tell me if CsW herding should be similiar to GSD type of herding or border collie type of herding...
