Working Cattle Dogs

“Man’s best friend can become a cowboy’s best hand.” It is always interesting to watch someone work their cattle with cow dogs. They handle them with the least amount of commotion and at an easy pace.

I’ve had a few dogs myself, but never one that was well trained. Do you use dogs on your place, or have you even seen some in action? What do you recommend is the best training method for a great cow working dog?

What do you think of using dogs to work livestock? Share your thoughts on the “I am Agriculture Proud” Facebook page. Hope you enjoyed the video.
