Finding a trainer for work with cattle?

Recommended Posts

How would one go about finding a trainer who can teach someone about cattle work instead of sheep? This would be for someone looking to turn a dog into a helpful dog around a large beef operation.

There are resources in NC and SC. Karen Hart in NC (and I don't have her contact info at my hands, but I can get it). I think it's the Tholkes in SC at Red Creek Farm, also?

 

Stockdog Journal has ads that include about four people in NC (or NC and SC, and including Karen Hart) who do serious cattle work with dogs. Nicole Rhodes publishes that magazine, and I could look up the contact info for those folks for you later.

Ah forgot to mention - this is for someone I ran into on another board who I offered to help since she thought AKC was the only option. :rolleyes: She's in Vermont; the dog in question is a 7mo ACD.

Don't know anyone in VT but I know of two in PA. Mike Hartman and Herm Cook. Both are good trainers and generally start dogs on sheep. Mike has a beef operation and Herm runs a dairy farm.
