  1. Great photos of working kelpies (Cattle in the Pilbarra)

    General Dog Forum
    https://www.facebook.com/Pilbara-Working-Dogs-684592818298344/?fref=photo I especially like the video shown on the front . . . areal shots of five dogs penning a herd of semi-wild cattle. The photography is also great . . . some wonderful still action shots showing dogs confronting cattle, and...

  3. Herding training

    General Dog Forum
    Wondering if anyone here does herding classes or activities with their dogs? We're moving and in my hunt for another training facility I came across a place that does herding for all breeds of dogs (as well as rally, agility, carting, etc), and a light bulb went off. I think Pai would love it...
  4. Aussie herding while biking

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 1.5 year old Australian Shepherd. He is a very good dog. He is great at being off leash, coming on command, not going in the street, calm energy in the house and on walks, etc. I take him on lots of bike rides since he loves to run. I take him on some local dirt trails that there are...
  5. Herding games for puppy?

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 12-ish week old Corgi puppy. He shows some pretty strong herding instinct. I've gotten him to not nip my heels when I'm letting him chase me. But I'd feel bad to train the herding instinct out of him completely. I was wondering if there are any good games I could play with him to help...
  6. Herding Aussie?

    General Dog Forum
    My friend has an "show quality" Aussie (apparently the breeders just wanted to breed their show quality female with a show quality male for the heck of it) and at the beach, and I know, I've made a rant about this but I have learned to leave it alone, his interactions with people his owner claim...
  7. Puppy problem!

    Dog Training Forum
    Our problem is that our 5 month old Greater Swiss Mountain dog puppy chases me whenever I run from him. He does *not* chase joggers, cyclists or strangers. He will only chase and the people we are walking with. At first I thought it was hunting instinct but he does not chase our cats and he...
  8. Help with Overly-playful Puppy?

    Dog Training Forum
    I need some advice on my 11 week old Australian Shepherd Heeler mix. She's very rough when playing with other dogs and does not respect their space. Sometimes she'll nip them as well. Currently I'm working on teaching her self control but I'd really appreciate some tips that could help me with...
  9. Dog/Fence aggression and herding/nipping? (Long post, sorry!)

    Dog Training Forum
    My dog is obedience trained, trained to walk (sorta) properly on leash, etc. When I walk her, she's a doll. She'll let anyone approach her, she'll be perfectly great. She doesn't have an amazing recall if she's focused on something else. She gets usually 2 hours of walk a day, and rough housing...
  10. How to know if your dog isn't mean to be around cats?

    Dog Training Forum
    Title is supposed to say MEANT* to be around cats. =P Like for example, some dogs just shouldn't be around cats for various reasons (too agressive, herding, prey mentality, etc.) and a lot times when a dog isn't good with cats the shelters will specify. So, I'm not sure how to tell if my dog...

  12. ACD mix Rushing, and leash behavior.

    Dog Training Forum
    I was curious for any ideas for a couple issues I have going on with my dogs. For some backround I have a 2 y/oACD mix,pepper, who in her head is ALL ACD. Got her from an undesirable situation at about 3mos. She was very fearful for awhile. She has very strong herding instincts and is extremely...
  13. Australian Shepherd Herding on a Farm

    General Dog Forum
    Here's my Australian Shepherd doing what he loves and doing a good job of it too! He will get excited at times but overall is a very level headed worker. Here he is moving the cattle to pasture. I really appreciate the work he does, those girls can be really hard to get moving. Nothing like a...
