Training a Cow Dog on Cattle

When first training a cow dog on cattle, there are three things we focus on.

  1. Teaching them it’s exciting to find cattle and group them.
  2. To stay on their side of the cattle, opposite from handler.
  3. And to remember previous commands even when distracted by the cattle (“Down”, “Come”, and “Behind”)

At 13 months, Reata has been on cattle about 5 times here.
