As long time sheep producers the Kuykendall’s are well aware of the type of dog needed for daily farm use, whether it be for a large cattle operation, a commercial or purebred sheep or goat flock to a small hobby farm our dogs are tailored to get the job done for each individual need.
Kent’s training is unique. Rather than rush a dog through the mechanics of herding commands, he uses the actions of the stock to help them understand what is needed.
That is, methods are not set in stone: they adjust to the personality and type of each dog, truly maximizing their natural ability and potential.
Hard dogs or soft dogs, keen dogs or laid back dogs, our method’s work and produce good, well balanced and happy partners. We train for your goals, we stress your goals because your dog needs to do your jobs, not adhere to a rote training program.
