I would appreciate you first reviewing the information about each dog provided on this site before contacting me, due to the considerable time it takes to describe the many dogs over the phone or email.
If you are interested and will provide good quality, kind, safe and caring living and working conditions for your dog, and treat them as a valued member of the family/staff, please contact me.
Please provide detailed requirements for a dog plus information about yourself. We can then discuss whether you and a dog may be a suitable match.
THESE DOGS ARE NOT FULLY TRAINED. They vary in their abilities, styles and personalities, strengths and weaknesses. They are youngsters who still make lots of mistakes and need further guidance and on-the-job training. If you can't provide the necessary guidance, do not expect them to improve, overcome youngster silliness and become well-rounded working dogs.
Fully trained reliable dogs are in the order of $3000-$4000 or more, if you are lucky enough to find them (e.g. at dog auctions), and they take considerable time and effort to reach that stage.
The dogs are ONLY trained with Merino sheep. I do not have cattle or goats, so I can only guess as to whether they would work cattle or goats.
My property is 330 acres with under 1000 sheep. The dogs do not work huge mobs in big paddocks. At the well-started stage they are only doing short casts.
My dogs are not socialised to children, poultry or cats.
None of the dogs has ever shown aggression toward me or other people, even during feeding (they are group fed as part of pack leader training).
From anyone purchasing a dog, I would like to receive follow-up on their progress, and will take back dogs that do not suit (see return policy).
