    I had this discussion with Aled during a lesson and am curious if there is a difference here (North America) vs the UK and other locations. Many of the topics we covered were handling for trials and how to prevent the loss of points. My question was, if there are no marked/collared sheep, who decides which is the correct group for the dog to turn on? I've been taught that the answer is to have the dog turn to the heads. However, according to some people, this is not always the case. Aled said it is often a matter of opinion and during our lessons sometimes recommended I ask the dog to take the group that was walking away from the dog. What I really need is for Aled to come with me to every trial and continue whispering commands in my ear.
