Wylie’s dad Bear carries a lot of Woods from Reddy Teddy and a lot of the old J Bar D blood. Very assertive on stock, really wants to please, easy to live with. Wylie’s mom Rhodie also carries the Woods blood through Silverledge. Due to an injury, her stock work has delayed, but she will begin training in the Fall of 2016. She is high drive and intense, but has a great sense of humour. Both his parents are a one man dog.
I went to Canada end of August 2016 to pick Wylie up. I was also able to meet his dam, his two brothers and a sister. We took all of them sheepherding. Wylie is a social butterfly, he loves all and everything. He is very open, very social and very stable guy. His nick name is Wylie smiley. That says enough.
Wylie has been started on stock, sheep and cattle. He needs more practice with cattle, he only saw them two weekends. On sheep his is making really good progress and learning how to present him self calmly to the sheep. He seldom bites sheep, when they try to buck him he just stays and gives pressure. Almost always without a bite or a bark. With cattle he was quite calm from the beginning. Started in a drive right away from the start. He did started barking, probably because he needed some more confidence. He started to heel, no more barking there, just at the heads. In spring of 2018 we will give him an introduction on ducks as well. I will also trial him in 2018 and we will be at the ASCA Nationals in Colorado.
We also train tricks and have started basics for agility. But all very slow and easy to make sure he gets the time to grow and mature. He is still a big baby in his head.
