Ranch Tough Cow Dogs

Our goal is to breed tough fearless cow dogs you can count on. We breed Border Collies that
have proven stock dogs in their pedigrees. Striving to produce dogs that are, clean biting with
big frames that will stand up to the most aggressive cattle. They are for all phases of ranch
work from pens to open pastures and rough country.

We own the Double D Ranch south of Brownwood, Texas, it is a cow/calf operation. Our dogs
are used regularly in all phases of ranch work. Both the male and female must understand
how to work cattle with a purpose, have confidence and bite only when necessary (they must
bite cleanly and hit both ends).

Border collies are wonderful dogs, but I have found that only the really smart dogs can work
cattle, not every border collie is a cow dog
. A select few will work yearling's and even fewer
will work cow/calf pairs, these select dogs are the ones we breed for. The good ones have
courage, bite, and cow-sense that is a bred-in instinct. The good ones are savvy dogs, green
or not, that instinctively know how to make the right moves, not run under a cows feet and
bite cleanly when necessary. They will be quicker and smarter than the cow.
