The Ultimate Cowboy's Dog
Gary Ericsson and his son Choc developed the Hangin' Tree Cowdog.
Gary had the vision of developing the Ultimate Cowboy's Dog.
A cattledog that is a gathering, retrieving, herding type dog.
A tough aggressive dog that has the courage to stand up to and handle all types of cattle.
An intelligent dog that is easy to train.
A short or slick haired dog that can stand the heat when needed and also shed burs and mud with minimal coat maintenance.
A dog with good bone structure that can take the abuse that a cattledog takes from being kicked and ran over.
A dog that is deep and wide in the chest with endurance that will stay with you when the going gets tough.
A dog that can wind and trail cattle.
Charlie and other cowboys who sure enough use their dogs to get a lot of work done with bad cattle and hard to handle cattle understand and appreciate what Gary did. He did develop The Ultimate Cowboy's Dog.
The Hangin' Tree Cowdog is a purebred working dog bred specifically to work cattle.
Gary chose four breeds originally to develop this breed.
The Hangin' Tree Cowdog is distinguished from other stockdogs not only by its appearance but by itís working style.
The dogs are expert gathers of stock while making cattle gentle and easy to handle.
The dogs are very adaptable and can be used for all types of ranching operations from feedlots to open range and cow/calf or stocker programs.
