"There is no good flock without a good shepherd, and no good shepherd without good dogs." These age-old words of wisdom have always guided Devon sheep farmer David Kennard. But as he battles to save his farm from extinction, they take on a greater weight than ever. The storm clouds are already gathering when Borough Farm suffers a series of disastrous setbacks that threaten the Kennard family's traditional way of life. Though the farm has survived foot and mouth disease, an invasion of stray sheep, and the threat of disease, a malfunctioning tractor and a sickly sheepdog all add to the farm's daily pressures. How much longer can they stay afloat financially? And will David be the last shepherd to tend his flock in this rugged corner of England? Is there a way to achieve the seemingly impossible---making a living through farming sheep in the twenty-first century? A shepherd since the age of seventeen, David offers an honest and affectionate, often comic picture of life on his sheep farm. But throughout this gentle meditation on his family's rural way of life, David is in a fight for that life, and for the survival of his family and farm. He must rely---as always---on his faithful sheepdogs Greg, Swift, Gail, Fern, and Ernie. But even he is surprised when the dogs---and the new dog on the farm---exceed his expectations and prove to be Borough Farm's secret weapon.

Graeme Sims discloses his gentle techniques for making any dog confident, happy and well behaved. Graeme Sims - the man who 'speaks dog' - is hailed as one of the world's most respected dog trainers. His approach depends on his matchless ability to get into the mind of the dog - to be truly a 'dog whisperer'. He explains how our misinterpretation of dogs' reactions can cause them unhappiness and contribute to behavioural problems. In a series of case studies, he shows how, with understanding and patience, we can reach the nervous, the difficult or the disturbed rescue dog, and help them finally to feel that they have a real home. His book gives you a chance to look at life from the dog's point of view and to understand thoroughly what you see; it is for anyone who wants to earn the right to be their dog's best friend.

Charismatic David Kennard lives a life most people can only dream about. Farming on a spectacularly beautiful part of the Devon coast he has an almost telepathic bond with nature and with his working sheepdogs. His is a life filled with daily challenges, from the battles with wild Atlantic weather to the dramas of clifftop rescue, but it is also a life full of the richness of rebirth, and the Herriotesque delight in a way of life that has remained almost untouched by the modern world. Part diary, part homage to the countryside and the canine family that is so much a part of his life, David Kennard's extraordinary book is designed to touch the hearts and minds of city and country dwellers alike.
