This allows them to see through barn walls. Mine ride with me all the time and when they spot a Cub in a barn their tail sticks straight in the air and points in the direction of the Cub. This is more sure-fire than sophisticated new technology.

Here you can see Flash as she checks a barn for Cubs.

Of course with condition of the walls on this particular barn anybody with normal vision can see through them.

Okay, forget all that other stuff. The Border Collie is a friendly all around dog. They keep the critters out, they like to play (and play and play) and they let you know when some one is in your drive. Ours will lay out by the garden when we're out there just to keep an eye on things. If I'm splitting wood or working on a Cub, one of them is laying close by as if to say "I got your back covered". One just likes to lay at our feet when we sit around the campfire.

I still vote for a Border.

I have had four of these dogs, and those that have been to DOCFEST have been around two of them. The most gentle dogs to be around, unless you are a deer. Highly intelligent, loves the exercise, easily trained.

Labs are the best .Stay clear of the male dogs. They run. Bailed him twice from the pound. Pulled a Hudini. We have a female spayed, never leaves the yard. We had Collies for the first 12 years of our young married life, They are exceptional dogs as well, However we could never enjoy a Thunderstorm,Forth Of July without the constant High pitched howl, Hated that
:evil:
We have had Labs now for about 13 yrs and love them. Never had one Bite
Yet, But not to say the won't ever.

I got a pound puppy. Looks like a bird dog with weiner dog legs. Great Dog!! Keeps cattle busy when I need em busy and leaves em alone otherwise. Comes when called and lives to ride in the pickup bed. Just get one and train em like you want em.

Never thought he would ever come out of his point the first time he saw the chickens though.

Dog came home...

Postby Uncle Mike » Mon Feb 11, 2008 2:35 am

So the cat disapears and I start to notice dog prints in the snow. After a couple of days later the can food disapears, and I follow some tracks around, but can't find the dog. I finally spot the dog three days later, laying down in the snow. She is a black lab mix. We get it over to the house, and it gets a couple of steak bones. Turns out to be well trained, wants to please and has no identification, and does not want in the house.
I advertised that we had her, and have not heard back from anyone.
She would not get into a car at first, so I think she may well have been dumped.
Best part of the deal... will spot deer, bark at deer, and chase deer if told to.

Oh, I found the cat in a stump pile, stranded by two feet of snow, and full of mice.

My vote would be for the English Shepard also. Had one as a youngster and was undoubtably the smartest of many dogs that I have owned. Pete

Equal to the Border Collie I would say Brandon is right on target. I may be bias because I love all the Heelers I have had including My present one. They are one smart lovable dog that can amuse children for infinity. :)

I vote for Luisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog :o Wow, thats a mouthfull. I got Punkin for my farm dog.The wienie-dog and jack russel are older-fatter- and lazy and won't go out in the wet and cold. Can we say worthless.

Punkin is 6 mo old now. Bred to have natural herding instinct. Smartest dog I ever saw. She was fetching and retrieving at 10 weeks. She has a nose like a hound. She loves to herd the horses when I want them-She seems to know where and when before I tell her. Loves to play and wrestle with the barn cats.

She is very gentle, but still very energetic. But you WILL NOT come on the property without me knowing it. We have a fence collar on her to keep her back of the front of the house(busy road). But she wont go to the barn without me.

That is her as my avitar.

Dale

oh yeah, she don't like Elmo-no place to ride! Yet

I've always been partial to German Shepherd Mix. Rocky, our last one got in trouble with a neighbor by wandering through his pasture.

Here's a shot of our latest farm dog. He's my first Lab and so far he's been very quick to learn. Quite loyal and very friendly. Does have a huge appetite though.

Last night he and our other dog Byron the Black Cocker Spaniel trapped a fairly large Bobcat in the pond. I heard the ruckus and came with a light to find they had chased him over the pond dam and the Bobcat took a swim. When he would try to get to shore they'd go into the attack mode and he would have to go back out a ways. He soon was getting hypothermic and was choking on swallowed water so I called the dogs off and let him come ashore.

Last seen he was departing this county at a high rate of speed :arrow: :twisted: :shock: Image

Here's the great part... everyone loves the dog they have. That says a lot about the dog owners as well as the dogs!

We still miss our golden retriever, Reba. Thanks to PWL we have Marlee, a chocolate lab and we've developed a really strong tie. She tolerates us very well. :lol:
