Ep. 67: Dog power vs. grizzly power - Blackleaf Guardians (rebroadcast)
Farm Dog
by Aaron Steele
1M ago
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.

Farm Dog
by Aaron Steele
2M ago
Most North Americans recognize the German Shepherd Dog and similar breeds as law enforcement, military, and search and rescue dogs. While the German Shepherd never quite caught on here as a farm and ranch worker, the “shepherd” in its name should tell us something about its history, and Ulf Kintzel is here to tell us about its present and future as a working stockdog.

Ep. 64 DIY stockdogs (David Neason)
Farm Dog
by Aaron Steele
2M ago
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.

Ep. 63: The Idaho Shag, mystery stockdog
Farm Dog
by Aaron Steele
4M ago
Suppose there is this group of crossbred working dogs that has developed its own little subculture of fans. 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.

Ep. 62: The Australian Cattle Dog is not for everyone (rebroadcast)
Farm Dog
by Aaron Steele
4M ago
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.

Oftentimes the most pressing challenges farmers and ranchers have with livestock guardian dogs have nothing to do with breeding, training philosophies, and the intricacies of the canine mind. Sometimes it comes down to the basics…what should I feed them, how do I feed them, and how do I keep track of them? Solve those problems and you’ve got a great start toward success with LGD’s.

Ep. 60: You can raise a successful LGD. The research says so. (Bill Costanzo)
Farm Dog
by Aaron Steele

What should our expectations be for our livestock guardian dogs? Do they really need two to three years to mature into useful protectors? How can we measure their usefulness? Can the “average Joe” be trusted to raise well-socialized and effective guardians? Wonder no more, because Bill Costanzo is here with the results of his research on these questions.
