Boyd Ranch Aussies are proven working dogs that help us with our chores everyday on our 25,000 acre Cattle Ranch! They live a fun and active life and are out and about with us everyday on the ranch, from moving cattle, checking fence, or just hanging out with us at the barn.
Boyd Ranch Aussies are great minded cowdogs! They must be smart and able to figure out what way we are moving cattle without a lot of direction and commands. Our pastures are large and cattle can be spread out for miles. We have Aussies who have the ability to think on their own and assist us by reading cattle well, moving them in the right direction, and with the amount of pressure needed to get the job done.
We breed for natural herding ability, sound minds, structure, trainability, livestock sense, and great dispositions. Our dogs can track and have enough grit to gather wild brushy cattle. They will also switch gears and quietly bring in pairs with small calves.
We don’t work cattle every day and ALL our Aussies have an off switch. They are happy just being with us at the house or the barn or swimming in a stock tank!
All of our Aussies are ASCA and AKC registered. They have had DNA testing (or by parentage) for HSF4/HC, CEA, CMR1, CD-Cone Deg, PRA-prcd, MDR1 and also passed OFA prelims and/or permanent on hips. Our goal is to breed healthy Aussies with good minds, and great livestock sense!
Boyd Ranch Aussies are working across the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and South America on Cattle and Sheep Ranches, Farms, and Dairy’s. Our dogs have also excelled in Service & Therapy, Trials, Sport, Flyball, Agility, Obedience, and are living in houses as wonderful loyal family companions.
