July 21, 2006—I have a question for you about my dog. He is one now and has a desire to work. I want to start working more with him and have some already. My problem is getting him to listen when he is around cattle. He listens to me pretty well when he is not around stock. I take him with me to check cows and he sticks with me for a while. Then he takes off after a cow when I don’t want or need him to and I can’t get him off for anything. I am very firm with him when he gets in trouble but he definitely knows when I can’t get to him. I thought about an electronic collar. I don’t know. Any ideas? (more…)
