Trial Dog / Ranch Dog

“Ranch Dog Trainer . . .Dedicated to farmers and ranchers who use the working stockdog as a livestock handling tool.” I hate to see so much emphasis being put on trying to prove that trial dogs are better than ranch dogs, or that ranch dogs would be better if we

Untrained Dogs of Yesteryear
