Not A Bird Dog But.....

Post by gonehuntin' » Sat May 18, 2019 12:37 pm

If you enjoy great dog work, take a gander at this. Annie is the 2018 Novice champion.

The dog works to whistle and voice but most of what you're seeing Dagley says is experience and natural ability.

Love watching any well trained dog, doesn't need to be a be a bird dog. The lady that taught me obedience training had a Dobie with a UDT on it. With it and two Springer's before it she won the Dog World award in Obedience. Unbelievable how well her dog's worked, spell binding!

Extremely impressive! What breed is this? Can still from the overhead pictures. Was this taken by a drone? Very useful photography, too.

I bet there isn't an ounce of fat on that dog. He's in great shape and knows what he is doing :!:

Yes Steve, taken with a drone. Had to change batteries once. Here is some more info on the breed they're creating.



I'm posting this because like many others on here, I'm guilty of demonizing anyone that suggests crossing dogs to get another breed. Yet here is a small group of people promoting a new breed and very specialized dog that I have no problem encouraging. Some self examination on my part may be in order. :D :D

DNA Update

The Hangin’ Tree Cowdog
“The Ultimate Cowboys Dog”


The vision of Gary Ericsson

Gary Ericsson and his son Choc developed the Hangin Tree Cowdog.
The Hangin Tree Cowdog breed was named after the Hangin Tree Ranch.

The Hangin Tree Cowdog is:

A cattledog that is a gathering, retrieving, herding type dog.
A tough aggressive dog that has the courage to stand up to and handle all types of cattle.
An intelligent dog that is easy to train.
A dog with good disposition that is not overly sensitive.
A short or slick haired dog that can stand the heat when needed and also shed burs and mud with minimal coat maintenance.
A dog with good bone structure that can take the abuse that a cattledog takes from being kicked and ran over.
A dog that is deep and wide in the chest with endurance that will stay with you when the going gets tough.
A dog that can wind and trail cattle.
The Hangin Tree Cowdog is a purebred working dog bred specifically to work cattle.

Gary chose four breeds originally to develop this breed:

3/8 Border Collie for their intense herding instinct and intelligence.
1/8 Catahoula for the ability to trail and find cattle, also for their toughness and slick hair coat.
1/4 Kelpie for endurance and also herding instinct and short hair.
1/4 Australian Shepherd, only a dog named Hangin Tree Black Bear went into this breed. Bear was a super dog with courage and ability to handle any kind of cattle.


Hangin Tree Cowdog Association Inc.

The Hangin Tree Cowdog Association Inc. was formed to protect, preserve, and promote this very special breed of dog.
The objectives of The Hangin Tree Cowdog Association Inc. are:

To promote and protect the Hangin Tree Cowdog
Maintain a pedigree registry for qualified Hangin Tree Cowdogs
To further the advancement of the Hangin Tree Cowdog
Disseminate knowledge and conduct clinics for the training of dogs and their handlers
To do all in its power to advance the interests of the working cowdog

Owners and breeders of Hangin Tree Cowdogs are encouraged to join and register their dogs with the association. Only qualified Hangin Tree Cowdogs can be registered with the Hangin Tree Cowdog Association Inc.
