Matt DavisWhat method do you use to make them safe around critters? I have been good with this for years, but this family of rat terriers I am using now are proving very challenging. The prey drive is very intense in them.

Brooklyn HjerpeAll good farm dogs should know how to behave around livestock and to know the difference between prey and "friend." Good job!

Sheep shearing season is winding down in the heat , at least hopefully. I am ready to be done

We did get to go out on rats despite the blazing sun recently, and here are a few action shots ....

Peanut our rescue is doing great, and will continue to focus and get more polished, and Quinn our guest star is doing awesome as always ....

Tegan Nicole MarkusI have a dog that is obsessed with rodents, but I don't know how I would be able to have her hunt outside of getting her rats to use for enrichment- are there any groups you could suggest?

Lane JohnstonMan, I am sure you could use another hand. Have never sheared a sheep, live 1500 miles away, am 64 and slightly gimpy but don't mind hard work. Also, because of social security, if I get paid it needs to be cash. When can I start?

In the yearling pen
The Yearling Pen

Clearly the dogs are up close and personal with the animals on the farms locations where we commonly work.

Considering the grain food sources on the farm are often the reason for rat issues, and we are looking for rats at the source. The dogs must be well socialized and versed in working with and around the livestock.

This short video shows just how close we have to work with the livestock in order to be successful at catching and dispatching rats on the farm.

Unfortunately this proximity to the livestock also creates its own inherent danger as well. Squeakers getting stomped accidentally is a prime example.

There is no way to remove this danger from the farm, it is simply a calculated risk. Trying to hold a true example of terrier back from its natural instincts is far more harmful than the occasional accident.

Of course the videos are not real time they are footage I review when I have time, Levi is still quite young in the footage.

I hope you enjoy this short video taken on a working family dairy farm.

Kelly SciarrottaYes! Mine doesn't bat an eye at mama hen with a string of babies behind her, doesn't harass the cows and adores her goats and sheep, is smart enough to leave the pigs be. The squirrels have learned that she doesn't go in the donkeys pasture though, and take advantage of the that barnyard dynamic. We have domestic meat rabbits as well, with trays of feed out- she's got to leave our rabbits alone while at the same time working under and behind cages without upsetting them, keeping any vermin away from their feed and nests. Being a good farm dog is a pretty detailed job description- and setting up how we farm so our dog can safely work takes a little foresight too. Good dogs!

Jreed and his Mongrol Hoard with Brandon Riebli.

Ruby the JRT
Ruby the JRT a Story of Success ( and a little Levi the Leviathan lending some teeth )

A failure in the wrong hands, a terrier can be a troublesome, quarrelsome, and destructive beast.

Yet when set to purpose, instincts can be harnessed and drive focused.

Ruby the JRT is a rehomed terrier from a sensible rescue who knows the Mongrol Hoard of Rascally Rat Wranglers and what we do.

Typically the emotional nonsense of animal lovers that fill the ranks of rescues, are an impediment to the actually success of finding a terrier an real home.

In theory many like what we do, but the actual reality of dirt, animals, and potential injury are just some of the things that create the gap between dog man and rescue organization.

Luckily for Ruby the JRT a fine example of terrier, she landed where a person knows that she needed more than a pet environment to be a terrier.

Ruby landed on a active dairy farm where she not only has room, but other solid terriers and more than enough stimulation to be mentally and physically fit. By giving her the things she needs to stay healthy, she will not become a destructive or aggressive meltdown problem child.

Its been a great joy to watch her work with enthusiasm and she is included in our work although I do not own her. She is an extended farm family dog per se.

I hope you enjoy the short video and story that ends well with a working terrier in its proper home and place as a terrier.

She obviously is at home on the farm, as a rat dog.

Dianne LemmonI have a JRT that I rescued from the county kill shelter here. She's been adopted out twice out of the shelter and picked up twice as a stray. She had lived with me for three years and she's very settled in her life because she now has a purpose. Once she discovered hunting, ratting and terrier trials she no longer felt like she had to run away. I love her to bits and she has a permanent home now.

Lynn Benhart-BonhamThank you for the awesome compliment, you gotta know working terriers! Some want to hunt 24/7 ( bred into their genes ) Some do not care! Often times a serious quary dog does not make a good pet. As most terrier owners do not have a true form of means to keep them mentally, physically, and emotionally challenged on a daily basis!
