From Puppy to Trained Cowdog Comparison Videos

“So, when you are picking out a puppy, how do you know which puppy will make a good cowdog?” “What traits should you look for in a cowdog puppy?” “Is it good for a cowdog puppy to chase stock, or should it circle the stock?” “Is chasing goats and sheep alright for a cowdog puppy?” “I want I good stock dog, but how do I tell which puppy to choose?”

People ask many questions about how to pick the right cowdog puppy. Instead of trying to answer them all, I thought it might be helpful to see before and after videos of our cowdogs. See us introduce our 3 month old cowdog to goats, then see what she looks like as a trained cowdog!

This first video shows our cowdog, Annie, as a 3 month old puppy when we introduced her to our young goats. It goes on to show her at 5 months old, two months later

Some of the mama goats in the second half of the video ended up being a little bit difficult, as they had never been worked by a dog before, and were definitely on the fight. After a little bit you will see David walks in with Annie to help give her the confidence to face off with the goats.

David’s brother used his drone to film this video of Annie gathering yearling out of the creek pasture.
