In this episode, Jacque speaks with Aaron Steele, founder of Goats On The Go and host of the Farm Dog podcast.
This is a very interesting conversation about finding a working dog that works for you. When you are looking for a working cattle dog, it is very important to understand the dog’s genetics. Building a relationship with an outside breeder is important, especially if you want to know the dog’s background, training, and potential health issues.
It is important to know what dog you want for your lifestyle, and that is why podcasts like The Instinctive Australian Shepherd and Farm Dog are educating people about the breeds and what to expect from them.
They were just having fun at first and started off their farm as a hobby, but quickly became a business called Goats On The Go®. Now they have 35 affiliates, including one in Canada and Australia.
His son’s helped manage the growth, but as they grew up and moved out of the house, he felt the “growing pain” and decided it was time to get his first stock dog - so he decided to interview experts and that was the birth of his podcast, Farm Dog.
Goats On The Go, based in Ames, Iowa, is a targeted grazing company that uses goats to sustainably manage unwanted vegetation on customers' properties. They also produce the most sustainable meat on Earth for restaurants and consumers. Aaron’s organization is helping people to stop surrendering to the use of poisonous herbicides or CO2-spewing equipment and using goats instead.
