I believe that a well trained dog is an invaluable asset on the ranch. My dogs are my partner not an employee to do as I tell it. I ask that my dogs respect me and I show them the respect they deserve because lets face it their job is a lot harder than mine. My training methods are motivation and phrase based. I believe in letting a dog make mistakes in order to learn. I base my training on the dogs natural abilities which allows for low stress stock handling. Low stress stock handling is very important to yield higher quality meat and healthier stock which improves profits. When completing a task with my stock I want to make the experience as low stress as possible on the livestock, dogs and myself (in that order).
On a limited bases I offer training to outside dogs at our ranch in Anderson either through private lessons or boarding. Please contact me for more details.
Jinx shows how easy she makes it to put sheep in a pen for me.
Jinx shows great cover and she is training each lamb that breaking back to the fence line to their moms is not an option and will result in a lot of pressure by Jinx.
