What is a shopworn or damaged title?

We often have books that have slight damage to either the cover or the interior of the books that don't allow us to sell them as brand new. If you don't need a brand new looking book, these are a great option. 


With a history dating back 100 years, many herding breed dogs are selectively bred to excel with specific traits and abilities. These dogs have long done work for us, helping to control livestock all around the world. However, in some cases, these dogs have gone from hard-working farm hands to condo dwellers in as little as one generation. While we love border collies and other herders, many breeds are clashing with our lifestyles and are being misunderstood.

Dive into their history, get to know your working dog for who they are and fall in love with all aspects of them. You'll understand them and become a better guardian because of it! A leading expert in herding breeds in pet homes, Emily Priestley, CTC, CDBC, SAPT, will take you on a journey to meet your herding breed and see them for who they are.

In Urban Sheepdog, Emily will help you understand why they do what they do and the common issues in our homes when we live with herding breeds. From genetics to puppy raising, adulthood, breed behaviours and everything in between, Emily will help you get to know your dog again!
