Working Dog Traits

  • The dog must be calm, strong, and confident. It will be able to pull up stock by its presence alone, but if needed will apply as much force and strength as required ,but release the pressure off the stock, to give the stock a clear choice of action.
  • The dog must have and excellent temperament. It must be able to take pressure i.e. mental and physical pressure from the handler and the stock.
  • The dog must be of a good type. It must be able to travel and to back up each day and stay on the job. It must be athletic and show stamina.
  • The dog will be a silent worker, with only an occasional bark, if required to put additional pressure on a stubborn beast.
  • The dog will have a presence with cattle, which will recognise it as something to be reckoned with and who is in charge.
  • The dog will be biddable, but nevertheless will demonstrate its own ability and stock sense, and will be in the right place without constant instruction from the handler. It will have a natural balance on the stock i.e. working with you and not shutting stock down, which is a common fault in stock handling by dogs.
  • The dog will naturally cast reasonably wide of its stock, and will go to the lead; he will go out with purpose and presence. Its instinct must be to bring the stock back to the worker.
