We have a new team of pups being started on hogs. These pics are actually from September...I have just been slow in getting them on line. Sorry :)

They seem to be catching on quick! Must be their blood lines ;)
I hadn't planned on training Legend (my cream male Lacy) on hogs BUT I have decided to pretty much work him in every area that the Lacy was meant to work. He has turned on quick to pigs. I`ll start blood trails now that we are in deer season. After that, once he is big enough for a shock collar, I`ll start him on herding. I plan on giving him a go on trap lines as well. As much as I might like to start him on cats (big cats not domestic lol) I would hate for him to eat my kitten...oh well ! He will stay busy enough I guess.

Love the little ones working like that!! Thanks for posting the pics.

Just one question, why do you need a shock collar to work cattle?

Those monsters are true hog dogs in the making!

I guess that cream female is driving Steve nuts. He wants me to bring her down to a bay next week to do the young and old with Sadie, and I'm sure she bow up and give the boar hell, but I may have to be the voice of reason here so she doesn't get her tiny 10 lb booty kicked by a 300 lb pig :roll:

Mrs. Betty
Unfortunately Legend has a drive that will require a very firm hand to focus him & gentle him down. Mostly because he will start out on goats. If he is to aggressive then my Jenny will come after him. The collar is as much for his protection as it is for my goats. He responds well to verbal instruction despite him still being young but I have also found that he likes to pretend he doesn't hear me once his mind is set to something. "Get Out" is not a command he can hear...lol I had thought I could approach the herding the same way I had with my Aussie, I was mistaken. He turned on so quick with the hogs and with such intense drive..he is something else!

Julie !! Legacy would think she was 10 feet tall and bullet proof! And you're right she, though very fast, isn't ready for a 300lb boar...lol It wont be long though.

Those pictures were from the first time they were exposed to a pig. I have new pictures from this latest session. Suki, Legend & Buffy are hell on wheels. Jilly needs a much bigger pig. She turned on quick!!!!

I`ll post the newer pics soon.

A pig? I thought they were baying an ass :P

Mis, after watching the puppy bay this weekend, I think all those pups could kick butt in a couple months. Are you guys going to build another pen or just use the backyard for training?

LOL Julie
I think at some point we will build another training pen. Right now the back yard is working out alright.

I still need to get the newer pics put on my pc so I can post them. They chased a 60lber all over the back yard until my boys (Banjo & Legend) decided to catch it. We are going to have to get a bigger pig. ;) Jilly bayed for about 3 seconds before she decided to catch it. Suki bays like a pro though, she isn't as eager to catch it but she isn't afraid to either.

Hey I read your posts about agility training with Sadie...I`m so proud of her!
