Marvin and BadgerWould you like to train your dog to work cattle the right way? Does your dog work cattle but could use some refresher training? How about working on obedience issues your dog is having? Come spend the weekend with Marvin Pierce and learn how to work your dog on cattle and have a better behaved, obedient partner! In this clinic we will cover: Basic respect and obedience, dogs that chase horses and other stock, cattle gathering, penning with your dog, keeping the dogs attention with you, having a successful recall, aggressive issues, dogs that bark, and any individual requested help! Let Marvin show you how to get the most out of your Cow Dogs.

Marvin has been training cow dogs for the past 15 years with great success. His dogs work cattle on ranches with 100s of head, helping to move these large herds. Marvin also does demonstrations with his dogs at bucking bull events, county and state fairs, and for private parties.

All breeds of dogs are welcome
and will get one-on-one instruction.

Farmers, ranchers, state & local police as well as others call Marvin when they need help gathering loose or wild cattle.¬† That’s just how good his dogs are …and his training is! cowdog clinic 2012

Saturday РSunday  Oct. 25-26:

8am – 4pm Cow Dog Clinic

Both days Marvin will help folks get their dogs started on cattle the “right” way. Marvin will cover the fundamentals of starting a dog on cattle to fine-tuning a dog that’s already working cattle. He’ll also help folks overcome common and “not-so-common” obedience issues such as fighting, chasing horses, not coming when called and unruly & ill-mannered behavior.

Marvin’s main objective is that folks leave the clinic with a dog that is better behaved, smarter on cattle and a pleasure to be around. And as always he wants everyone to have FUN! Some specifics that will be covered in the clinic are:

  • pen cattle using your dog
  • get your dog to “down” when asked
  • position you dog so you can get your cattle penned
  • keep your dogs attention on YOU, no matter how busy and chaotic the environment
  • …as well as covering individual training issues and participant-generated requests


  • $125 for 1 dog per day
  • $200 for 1 dog and 2 days
  • $50 for 2nd dog per day
