    Here is the Disney ‘Bluey’ cartoon for the kids !
    It’s actually good me thinks :)
    They are cartoons that have lessons and actually teaches things.
    Not mindless dribble.

    I always think it’s great when women have a dog protector.

    I noticed there is a few ladies with cattle dogs on the YouTube that get particularly guardy of them.

    this lady told a funny story which was worth sharing I thought for a laugh.

    I don’t understand what these guys are saying , cattle dogs seem to be popular in countries where they speak like this by the amount of videos online however.

    I thought it was a good video because they seem to have the cattle dog attacking the bite suit on the heel!

    makes sense to me , seems like a natural progression of the blue heelers natural tendencies and I think that is a great idea .


    don’t think I’d like being the one in the suit though

    Impressive control. a hyper-alert protection dog with an excellent off switch!
    As you say, the bottom of the leg is too low for the dog to be able to detain the 'criminal', but that area would be a natural target for the breed. A good job the decoy is fully suited though and not just wearing a padded sleeve.

    I am impressed by dogs which are bred for jobs and how it shows in their genetic dispositions, immensely .

    the speed of a cows kick is also impressive and a cattle dog stays instinctively beneath and out of reach with its speed .

    the dogs are notorious actually for keeping intruders captive and begging to be let out when the owner of a house gets home .

    one story recently of the bite is a guy who worked for a radio rental type company on his delivery , he came to the door and the woman inside had tied the cattle dog to be able to reach that door as she had had trouble around the place.

    well the dog bit the radio rental guy on the calf muscle, puncturing it and actually punctured entering his leg bone too.

    he was layed up for a while after that recovering off work ,
    And I’m told he turned out to be a cheater by his partner (which I attributed to good judge of character tongue in cheek)

    any way back to cattle dog ankle biters,

    I have a friend with a working German shepherd security dog .
    I asked him if the cattle dogs could do security and attack work like he does and he said “short answer NO”
    They don’t fit the bill .

    I have talked to another trainer who told me about the links in the characteristic chain of a dogs natural genetics to perform and bite , guard etc and how the guardian breeds get an extra link of capability which some dogs don’t naturally possess . ( sorry but vague again My memory :) )

    I think the cattle dogs weight was also a factor in it not making that grade .

    not saying there is not examples out there that can ,however horses for courses as they say ,

    And for the average householder , or woman using the bank machine or keep an eye on the kids , wanting an extra set of eyes to keep them safe ,
    I think this kind of training should definitely exist for the ‘domestic market ‘.

    Those manwork stewards certainly earn their free lunch and expenses!
    Not a job I would be volunteering for.

    In this movie series “around Australia with Malcolm Douglas “

    he has a different red cattle dog named “Bonnie “ .

    there is footage of Fraser Island dingos in this episode .

    unfortunately during this adventure Bonnie ate an illegally laid dingo bait on the side of the road where they stopped and died . (1080 poison) Malcolm explains sadly .

    in other episodes I also know he has a cattle dog named “Boondie.“
