Farm Dog

The podcast about the working dogs of farming, ranching, homesteading, and rural living. Presented by Goats On The Go® and hosted by its founder, Aaron Steele. We discuss the fascinating history and current practice of humans working with dogs to make a living from the land. Our chats with experts cover breeds, training, on-farm experiences, and more. Herding dogs (stockdogs) and livestock guardian dogs are frequent topics, but terriers, hunting dogs, and good ol' all-around farm dogs are up for discussion, too. If it produces, protects, or provides for our rural lives, we'll talk about it.

What does "well-rounded" even mean, and for that matter, is it really all that important? Rancher, trainer, and trialer, Haley Hunewill is here to tell us. Welcome to Farm Dog.

Imagine an early livestock guardian dog, laying out under the stars thousands of years ago, next to a band of sheep and goats somewhere in what is now Turkey.

We’d all like to have a stockdog from a famous line, and most of us understand that the best bet for training a useful working dog is to start with great genetic material. But great genetic material usually comes with an equally great price tag, and it means you’re signing up for the breeder’s goals and not your own. Is it possible to go your own way and save some money in the process? Welcome to ⁠Farm Dog⁠. Farm Dog is presented by Goats On The Go® and hosted by its founder, Aaron Steele.

It’s not a breed really, but someone clearly put some thought behind the crosses with a purpose in mind. Beyond that, though, the dogs' origin story is murky. Should we research, parse, categorize, and standardize the dogs into a definable breed, or just embrace the mystery? Welcome to Farm Dog.

The Australian Cattle Dog (ACD), obviously, was bred for cattle work. But today's farmers and ranchers don't often demand much from the breed, and its appeal to pet owners is strong even though some of its cattle dog instincts are undesirable for domestic life.

Livestock guardian dogs are just built different. Compared to other dog breeds they live differently, work differently, behave differently, and – importantly – learn differently. It’s often said that LGDs can’t really be “trained” in the usual sense, but with such a high failure rate among guardians, maybe we should be thinking about training on their terms instead of ours.

Ep. 15: The discerning LGD - Colorado Mountain Dog

Can a livestock guardian dog be trusted to stay with its herd even if it's enjoyed some moments on the porch in the past? Must it show suspicion and aggression toward every unfamiliar thing it encounters? Is it capable of discernment? The Colorado Mountain Dog might just challenge some of our assumptions about what LGD's are capable of. Welcome to Farm Dog.

Ep. 14: Dog power vs. grizzly power - Blackleaf Guardians

When you raise sheep on pasture surrounded by the largest carnivore in North America, mountain lions, and a local pack of wolves, you'd better have your act together when it comes to predator protection. For Steve Skelton of Bynum, Montana, that means his sheep live with a security detail of at least 10 livestock guardian dogs representing four or more different breeds. Welcome to Farm Dog.

Ep. 13: The Australian Cattle Dog is not for everyone...and that's a good thing

The Australian Cattle Dog (ACD), obviously, was bred for cattle work. But today's farmers and ranchers don't often demand much from the breed, and its appeal to pet owners is strong even though some of its cattle dog instincts are undesirable for domestic life. With pressure to change coming from all sides, who's going to bat for the working genetics of the ACD? Welcome to Farm Dog.

So when he went looking for pure McNab dogs  to be the foundation of his breeding program, he kept an eye out for a single characteristic that told the dogs' genetic histories as accurately as  any DNA test -- the unique McNab working style.

Ep. 6: What makes a cow dog a cow dog?

To Randal Walker, a rancher and stock dog trainer out of Toppenish, Washington, “cow dogs” are border collies, not all border collies are cow dogs, a fearful dog is certainly not a cow dog, and while it might tell you something about its character, a cow dog is not necessarily required to gather cattle from the Pacific Ocean.

Ep. 1: 25 farm dogs, 1200 sheep and goats, 1 rancher

Greg Christiansen is the owner of Grandview Livestock, a Kansas sheep and goat operation that utilizes dozens of livestock guardian dogs (LGD's) and a couple of herding dogs to provide a living for himself and his family. He is also the author of Raising Meat Goats in a Commercial Operation. In this first episode of Farm Dog we discuss LGD breeds that Greg has put to work on his farm (Anatolian Shepherd, Akbash, Komondor, and Great Pyrenees) and the different working styles of the breeds. Greg tells us about his history with "gathering dogs" (border collies, heelers, and Australian kelpies) and how to manage the tricky balance between the herding dogs and the LGD's who may view the herding dogs as the predators from which their sheep and goats need to be protected. We also discuss herding dog training and the logistics of taking care of so many dogs across several scattered pastures.
