Pincie Creek Stock Dogs
Welcome to the www.pinciecreek.net website. This new site is up to date, current and an ongoing site about our stock dogs. To date we have bred 7 generations of registered working Australian Shepherds. Our new site evolved out of demand to move forward into the future not only with our dogs, our breeding and our knowledge, but with technology as well. We hope www.pinciecreek.net is mobile friendly, user friendly and a pleasure to read. Look and learn about us, our breed, and our lifestyle. Thank you for visiting.
Registered Australian Shepherds
Our mission with our breeding program is to breed a superior stock dog. We like a dog that is biddable, loyal, easy to handle and train, and one that wants to work for you, not for themselves. These dogs understand teamwork as they will look for you and give you the check in look which we call the “did you see that” or “did I do good” look. We want our dogs to have power and presence to rate and work any type of stock. We breed for consistency in performance; we want dogs to work every day and not just one day. We breed dogs to work cattle and if they have the power to move and control cattle, the dog can be controlled on other types of stock. We believe that every farm/ranch person deserves a good dog and if you want a stock dog we hope it is a Pincie Creek dog. Pincie Creek dogs are proven in performance through many venues. Ours dogs compete in trial arenas, work on ranches, and make it their job to make you laugh. Kennels across the world have chosen Pincie Creek dogs to establish a solid foundation for their breeding programs. We have put Pincie Creek dogs on 4 continents.
WTCH Hangin’ Tree Blue Bear, Hall Of Fame Sire
The dog that was an ambassador to the breed as well as to the canine species. The trial arena is where most people got to know Bear. He won numerous High Combined titles and he participated in our breed stock finals many times. His serene mannerism was quite, confident, calming and authoritative. He had absoluteness around stock which got the job done. He never met a stranger and could work a crowd by picking out the next tennis ball thrower for him. I think Hangin’ Tree dogs are always smiling, quite different from Woods. This guy was light footed and calm around other dogs as well as stock. He taught the young pups not to run the fence and to be patient. He stopped them about middle way down the fence and put them on the ground then wrapped his mouth over their muzzle holding them almost to say, “nat nat no running and slow down.” This beautiful dog would look at a cow, goat, or duck with a sense of confidence and skill which could be felt by the stock. The ease to move and control stock was natural instinct and could never be taught by a human. Roger was often times considered Bear’s sidekick. We see the offspring he left behind and watch the poetry in motion when these pups grow to exhibit the stock savvy sense we have come to appreciate in our breeding program. If the pups take after Bear they are the jokers, smiling and grinning and will get the respect of the stock while stirring up dirt. Hangin’ Tree bloodlines have complimented the cross on Woods’s by contributing a pup/dog that is eager to please, has more fetch/gather and a little more sensibility on rating stock and working with you in a partnership. The willingness to listen and respond to your commands, the bid ability you might say comes from Blue Bear. The stick to it attitude and the schmoozing of a stranger to make a new friend all are traits of the Famous WTCH Hangin’ Tree Blue Bear.
Bear will always be missed.
Bearfoots’ Red Man Chew Rossy
Pincie Creek dogs are greatly influenced by the bloodlines established by Fletcher Woods in his breeding program. We think some of the uniqueness we see in our puppies is the influence of these lines. The rich red colors and the deep merles that show up in the Pincie Creek dogs are proof of predominate influences of these old Woods bred line of dogs. We breed to preserve this as we produce puppies that retain 6/8’s, 7/8’s Woods in the pedigree. The “Woods” bloodlines exhibit old fashion loyalty to their owner. The intense look in their eyes expresses loyalty, brains, and an absolute work ethic. Most Woods bred dogs prefer their own human; however will tolerate other people. The dogs are great at reasoning things out and reading people to know if it’s friend or foe. They almost cannot tolerate ignorant people as they think they are smarter than most people, even their owners. Woods’s dogs are known to be drive dogs. They usually have thick muzzles, deep chest, and usually have strange vocals such as chirping and yodeling. They truly carry a mystique about them. They are kind and gentle to stock. As puppies, when they escape the yard and get to the stock, they work to put stock into the corner and love to hold them there until you are ready to help them make the stock move again. They are known to be protective. They have a serious and sensible demeanor about them. Roger has said that the Woods’s dogs are independent, need a reason to do something and need to think it is “their idea” to do it. They can love you at a distance or shadow your every step. I personally love the behavior and mannerisms of the old Wood’s dog. The old lines are slowly disappearing and the love of these old bloodlines will be forever appreciated by Pincie Creek. We can see the influence of these strong lines in our breeding today with the dogs like Pincie Creek Aligator, Pincie Creek Hank and Pincie Creek Cedar and Sage. All our dogs will have some Wood’s in their pedigree somewhere.
WTCH PINCIE CREEK OSCEOLA, Hall Of Fame Sire
The dog to be reckoned with. He was every bit of a control freak, evening trying to control ol ‘Rog but settled for just controlling the stock. He had a strong work ethic never leaving any stock behind and sometimes it was ducks he was working. Roger and I have numerous good stories and memories about Osceola. Osceola always had a job in his mind, Many times when Roger and I left our daughter home alone; Osceola took over a guard dog position for her by sleeping in the house outside her bedroom door. That was the most relaxing position he took on. I have often seen Osceola in midair hanging onto a cow’s nose. A couple of times at stock dog trials ,the handlers came over and gave Roger ear tags off of the cows he and Osceola just got done working and penning up. He was a horrible traveler and would rather ride wrapped around your neck! He loved small animals being the most gentle with the baby lambs. In his trialing career he surpassed Bear in a number of titles of high combined. Osceola decided at 10 years old, he could finally wag his tail. We lost him too soon in the fall of 2008. Osceola has a great influence on our upcoming dogs/pups, although we still miss him.
Now, read a little history of Roger and myself. We are both from agricultural backgrounds and have been with Aussies since the 70’s. I met Roger at a dog trial in 2000 shortly after Miss Elaine passed. More information is shared about Pincie Creek, Roger and our dogs at the old website www.pinciecreek.com. This site was created and online by 1996. Please visit it to see more history about our stock dogs and farm.
