Stock dogs. Man’s best friend for moving livestock

At Ag in Motion in July, stock dog handler and trainer Jared Epp offered a demonstration and shared his experiences of how man’s best friend can be a valuable tool to help move livestock in the field.

In this video, Epp discusses the three “ins” he looks for in dogs to be successful at moving herds, the importance of leadership between a handler and their dog, the difference between how cows and sheep react to the presence of a stock dog, and much more.
