UP and COMING
This is the
page for those dogs in training.
dog there is a journey, there are new things for me to learn and I am
so grateful for all the dogs give back to me.
My hope is that I
can assist them on the road to becoming useful working dogs, help them
reach their full potential and find the home that will be a great fit
for the new handler and each dog. If you are interested in one of
these dogs please give me a call or send an email. email@example.com
I would enjoy discussing them with you.
Zeva x Marco Litter Feb 2017
Marco is a really nice dog out of WY. He works cattle in
KY, assisting with a rotational grazing operation of 200 steers.
I started him when he was about 13 months old on sheep. He is one
of those dogs that catches on fast, thinks while working and wants to
please. He is equally good on cattle and sheep, hard to find
these days. He is loaded with talent so excited about this cross.
The first breeding of both these good working dogs
produced litter of 8 pups, all healthy and doing well. Z
had her work cut out for her raising this brood.
She did well and they grew like weeds
All went to working homes from PA, VA, IN, IL
Getting reports that they all have begun to watch and show interst in
stock. Should do great - some went to cattle homes, others are in sheep
working homes. Time will tell
Looking good for 3 months old

The pups are at that super cute stage - growing by minute and already

Looking forward to this year and seeing how much she matures.

GRIZ SCOTT PUPS
Griz had her first litter of pups Dec 2014. She took care
them and they have moved on to their new homes except Ivy and Zeva who
will be staying here for awhile. They are both great pups.
At 3.5 mo old Ivy decided she was a working border collie.
Here is the video https://youtu.be/BkXnmhHAhEQ
I am amazed at the instincts that are in these pups. Zeva waited
a few weeks but is incredible on sheep already. Can't wait to see
what the fall will bring for these girls and the other pups.
I started two female pups from this litter : Ivy - a short coated tri
and Zeva - a med coated mottled girl.
Both girls have
been amazing from the first day they began working and contine to amaze
me. I could not ask for two more willing working dogs with such
great natural ability. It is as if the instinct just oozes out of
them, I love they are both super thoughful when working. The girls both have great feel and pace
but work a bit differently and have different areas where they shine.
Ivy is great
at scooping sheep out of corners and off fences, she keeps her head
like a dog three times her age no matter what is happening. Show
her once or twice and she has it. Ivy subscribes to the No Sheep
Left Behind club which is great but shedding has been a bit of
challenge because of that. Once there is a bit of distance
between two groups she is on point enjoying holding that
pressure. She is all business and takes everything a bit
seriously. IVY is in IDAHO working on a sheep and cattle
ranch. She is Deb's right hand girl and from what I hear making
quite an impression.

me along my journey and continue to do so.
