–> We imported our pair from Wales. Bryn has turned out to be a wonderful herder and varmint dog, as well as a family friend and protector (He hates Armadillos and Possums.). Welsh Sheep Dogs will listen to voice and call off of any command without a down-stay and will accept a new command. I am very pleased with the breed and I couldn’t get along without Bryn now. We imported another pair Fall 2017. If you have livestock, you need a Welsh Sheep Dog! Both Bryn and Target have been certified by the Welsh Sheep Dog Registry in Wales. We have bred and sold several litters across the USA and into Canada. However, Bryn is getting on in years, and we will no longer breed him.
–> Bryn, the male Welsh Sheep Dog, has proven to be an excellent stock dog, without any formal training. I could not gather the stock without him! He goes out alone and brings in the milk cow, works the Belted Galloway herd, gathers the goats and drives them to the barn, and checks at night outside the barn and brings in the stray chickens and turkeys. All of this is on voice and hand signals…. an exceptional stock dog! Bryn always checks the fields and when he doesn’t come in or barks, we know to go out to check. He finds the newborn babies who didn’t follow their mama to the barn, as well as the occasional goat with its head caught in the fence. I cannot say enough good about the Welsh Sheep Dogs. They are also great Versatility and Frisbee dogs.
WE ARE SAD TO ANNOUNCE THAT BRYN DIED AFTER A STEADY DECLINE IN HEALTH AT AGE 11. HE GATHERED AN ESCAPED PIGLET AND PUT HIM BACK IN THE PEN A MERE TWO HOURS BEFORE HE DIED- A TRUE DROVER DOG. WE CERTAINLY DO MISS HIM. HE IS BURIED IN THE AREA BETWEEN THE BARNS AND PENS WHERE HE LOVED HIS JOB FOR SO MANY YEARS. WE HAVE HIS LAST SON AND HOPE THAT HE WILL WORK AS WELL. WE NO LONGER BREED WELSH SHEEP DOGS.
