Leaning Tree Nap (Dixie x Ricky) - 6 months old

Nap is one of our 6 month old pups by Ricky out of Dixie. He is just getting started in training, today's session began by capturing two hogs on the loose. This was Nap's first expirence outside the training pen. He is available to a working home, sport or pet home, we will continue his training until sold. Nap should be an all purpose stock dog, he has worked anything that we have put in front of him including the calves.

Heading in the right direction

Making progress


Wayne let Nap do this job on his own other then to get his attention initially onto the pigs.

After the pigs were back in their pen Wayne took Nap to a 16' x 16' holding pen with some lambs and ewes, this is the first time that Nap has working in this small of space


Left some more (could use a little reshaping)

Right....(needs a little reshaping too)

Stop and walk up... (pretty good)

Pretty basic stuff, Nap makes it look easy

Leaning Tree Joey (Kess x Ricky) - 16 weeks

Joey is from our second Ricky litter, he is for sale if anyone is interested in this little firecracker

All you have to do is let him wind up......and let him go...

He doesn't require much work

He flanks to the right

He walks straight up

He stops

and he flanks to the left

All he needs is for someone to teach him the commands and hold him to them...
when he gets a bit older

BTW, he shows the same enthusiasm on calves and pigs

Cute little bugger, ain't he?
