About Tripp

Tripp comes from a long line of accomplished stockdogs, both on the ranch and at the national competition level. He is conformationally correct, with a nice flowing sidegait. Tripp is an upright, wide-running, and moderate-eyed Australian Shepherd who will use “eye” when necessary to control his sheep and ducks. He is a confident, intent worker, who also possesses a lot of power. Tripp can think for himself and work independently hundreds of yards away from me without ever losing control of his stock. He loves working any livestock but Tripp is, most definitely, a hard-core cow dog! His athleticism allows him to gather cattle all day, drive them into the corral, then load them into a trailer without missing a step. He can move cattle through dense brush, over creeks, and along steep hillsides with ease. At the same time, he is calm in the pens and has no trouble pushing cattle through chutes and gates.

Tripp can definitely be pushy at times but he will never back down from a mama cow or a bull when needed. His grip is efficient and he hits heads, heals, and front feet instinctively. Tripp will hold cattle, sheep, or other livestock anywhere he is asked, for as long as is needed. No-one is allowed near me while I am feeding, and often you will see the cattle standing thirty feet away from the feeder while Tripp watches them intently. One step over “his” imaginary line and the cattle will immediately be turned around and moved back from where they came. Tripp is a natural ranch dog whose instinct can sometimes be in conflict with what is being asked of him in the trial arena. But, as he is extremely biddable, he will always take the correction and move on, even if he doesn’t really want to… He has a great temperament with other dogs and LOVES people… Tripp is extremely intelligent and loves to work. Whether he is moving livestock, or guarding the family and the ranch, he always gives a hundred and fifty percent… At night, after a hard days work, you will find Tripp curled upside-down on the couch beside me or sleeping at my feet.


 

Sire: HOF WTCH MISTY RIDGE SPUR OF W LAZY J RTDcs PATDcs DNA-VP

Tripp’s sire Spur was the main ranch hand at the W Lazy J ranch in Montana. He was Betty Williams’ partner on the ranch and in the trial arena. There are as many great stories about him as there are hairs on a dog, but suffice to say he was one good dog. He could handle just about any kind of cattle in any kind of terrain, and if someone ever needed a hand, suddenly Spur came out of nowhere and helped you get the job done. He was also a great trialing dog, winning many buckles and awards at the local and national level.

About Cerise

Cerise is from our very first litter here at Superfly Aussies, the “Redbug” Litter (WTCH CH Cocoa x HOF WTCH Quinn). It was clearly from a very early age that she was going to be a precocious puppy. She was always waiting for me to come play. At 3.5 weeks she would take a Q-tip from me and hold it like a tiny dumbbell, at 4.5 weeks she would fetch a toy and bring it to me. By 8 weeks she had made it clear that she would not be going anywhere else, and so she didn’t. Cerise proved her worth this year competing at her first National Specialty, where she beat out 70 dogs to win The Most Versatile Aussie competition, as well as winning the high combined Non-WTCH award in both the National Specialty, and stockdog pretrial, at the young age of 3!

Cerise is a very driven dog, and rarely requires external motivation to get to work. She loves to work stock, and balances her speed with bidability. She has a nice circle and sense of group on stock. She progressed a lot this year working cattle, from a started dog at the beginning of the year to my main hand moving 75 head of cow/calf pairs many miles on unfenced roads and trails to new grazing pastures. She has a great wearing style when working cows, and she never stops until the job is done. She doesn’t often grip, but doesn’t often need to. She can keep large groups of cattle grouped and moving, as well as locate and gather in large fields, brush, and marshland. She often moves cattle as a team with her brother Rubin, and together we have helped the local rancher make his drives quick and easy, preventing cattle from ending up all over the valley.


In agility she has great obstacle commitment, and is naturally able to work at a distance from me. Weaves and contacts came easy to her (lucky for me, a novice agility trainer). In obedience she has a natural heads-up heeling style that required little training on my part, and she is very attentive to verbal and physical cues. Treats, toys, and praise/play are all acceptable rewards in her books, as long as we get to do stuff! Cerise’s siblings are training and competing in herding, agility, obedience, rally, flyball and dock diving. To learn more about Cerise, visit her page.
