Thumbs up Video: Lynyrd Herding Sheep

For those that didn't know, or have never seen a Rottweiler herd before, here is a video of Lynyrd taken in April during a training session on sheep.

YouTube - CH Bernkastel's CallMe Th' Breeze PT RN herding sheep


He currently has one leg on AKC started-A course sheep and one leg on started A course ducks :-) He also has one leg in ASCA on started sheep. Hopefully, I will have duck video soon!


Enjoy.

With Rotties, is it natural instinct for them to herd? Or is it trained?

Neat video

wow, Robin, he is just outstanding. What a nice calm steady worker. I am not sure which I enjoyed more, watching the herding, or watching that beautiful dog move so smoothly and effortlessly doing his job.

It is natural, Lizmo. Every one I have ever taken to stock was on it instantly. The control is trained, of course, but I don't think you can train herding.

My uncle used to be a big time rancher (he worked in OK and then at King ranch) and his choice for working cattle was always a rottweiler. Eventually he ended up with ACDs but I remember watching his rottie work. She was very impressive. You don't see them doing stockwork often anymore. I wish you saw that more.

Very cool!

I wasn't sure. I'm used to seeing Border Collies or Aussies work, and I couldn't tell with the Rottie since it's so different. I'm just now getting used to GSD working, which to my very newbie eye, looks alot like a Rottie working.

Thanks, everyone and Red..I could watch him move all day..and watch him work!

He's really come along this year...finally decided that ducks are fun!

Keep paws crossed: we have two days of AKC herding trials coming up the weekend of June 20, sheepies and duckies. Hopefully also going for RA title this summer too :-)
