Been a few weeks since we have been out and about due to sheep shearing season and garden needing to be planted but out to a local coop after work and caught these fat ones.

first time kids

Well the action was not that exciting, but getting some kids that never seen a working dog involved was worth all the hard work at this spot.

Wow, really impressive! Love the photos of the dogs on the bales of hay---they really pose for the camera, don't they?

Yup. I'm with you man, the AKC is terrible. How do you feel about the UKC? Also, how did you get into this? Just kept hearing about people with rat problems and one day got the idea?

LOL what I really think? Welll......... I am happy to give you some personal info if you want to PM me a email addy. I started this working on an organic farm and one of my deals was raising chickens. I started raising large scale heritage turkeys as well. That being said I am southern and love to hunt with dogs in wine country CA and also in the emerald triangle so small farms and rats with dogs is a good fit ... Jr

Yes indeed they do, and are treated as well as can be ........home health care for canines is easy and legal. Owing livestock is a great starter for dealing with basic first aid...

Wow, those pics are amazing. Nice to see real working dogs. Have you ever had a dog get into an area, like a pipe or hole, that they couldn't get out of? I used to have a Coonhound that was death to groundhogs. In all the years he was hunting them, he never got a scratch on him. I was always afraid he would get stuck in a den and not make it out. Groundhogs can be pretty fierce. He was one happy dog!

terrier work can be very hard on dogs ... personally I prefer dogs that are smart over dogs that are stupid tough. There was enough room in that tunnel for him to turn around and come out head first. Sometimes when they find a coon like that you have to dig and help them to actually dispatch it
