Stock breaking patterdales

Recommended Posts

I'm very much considering patterdales as my next foray into dogs but still considering my options, I've had Jack Russell's in the past but never bothered introducing them to other animals as it wasn't an issue. Just after some experience from you guys as to whats possible and what to expect both off lead and on lead with daily exposure as I live with my animals.

Hoping to be able to avoid a horse/donkey stampede trampling sheep and my latest puppy getting disembowelled by a goat.

Everybody got to start somewhere the fact that he is asking for help shows he is willing to learn and just not jumping straight in

Earlier the better I like mine around live stock as soon as they are jabbed up , take them around large herbivores and let them get scared , depending  on the terrier you may be able to break them to small stuff like cats and ferret , I've had some play with both I've also had others who once they get over a few months old kill their playmates in revenge for a forceful nip or a wack of puss's claws, the more time you put into it the better your success will be...good luck
