We can only train a limited number of pups at any one time.  
Puppies and dogs are accepted on a first come-first serve basis with priority to PHF bred dogs.

How do we train our LGD puppies? 

Puppies are placed with livestock as soon as they are old enough to keep from squeezing through the fence.  All of our pups are trained with sheep in small pens where they must remain with their stock at all times.  Occasionally pups may be placed with an adult LGD if we feel the pup and adult will get along.

We also teach the pups to walk peacefully on a leash.  Puppies are socialized to humans and learn how to distinguish acceptable visitors from intruders.   


PLEASE NOTE:  We will do everything we can to help your pup become a wonderful guardian.  However, we cannot guarantee behavior of these dogs once they have left our care.  Please be aware that each dog (even littermates) will respond to training differently and will only have a foundation in guardian work.  It may still have a desire to play/chase/bite until it is an adult and will need constant supervision or continued training.
