I saw a Blue Heeler working for a USDA trapper in Wyoming in 2004, and was very impressed. I have been fascinated by them ever since. I would be keen to hear more of your experiences, and perhaps chat directly if you ever have the time?

There's something entrancing about the breed, for sure. I've never forgotten the ones I've seen and have planned to have one for years. After a lifetime of bull breeds and an additional sixteen years of Lurchers I was ridiculously confident about my ability to cope with whatever a 'dingo' would throw at me. LoL. But she's damn hard, in every sense of the word and totally unforgiving of any mistakes in training. The single minded loyalty for which they're renowned is not given easily and you have to prove yourself worthy of it. She's like a Sherman tank on nitro.:lol: If it crosses your mind to get one then you surely do live in a place that would suit because this breed will cope with whatever terrain and mileage you throw at it. But this is my first one and only for a few months and so I can't claim any expertise with the breed nor any previous experience with herding breeds. Still n'all, she's worth every minute spent with her (well pretty much all my time actually) and anything I can share that would be helpful you're more than welcome to.

How are you getting on with that Heeler René?
