Spotlight on Ranch Herding Dogs

working dog herdingWe all know how essential dogs can be to a working ranch.

This video is a great spotlight on some of those working dogs. Check out the video below and head over to spend a little time in Nebraska, learning about how to train working dogs and ’round up the herd’ for your sheep and cattle!

Truly a great introduction to a few standard herding commands, and how to get your dog to understand and obey them!

The video, from America’s Heartland, does a great job of showing and explaining what can happen when you pair a natural herding dog’s instinct with a little sound discipline and training.

As the owner states, he tells the dog where he wants the sheep or cattle, and he puts them there, to the point that they are absolutely essential to running a livestock ranch!
