Portrait Dale Kenneth Montgomery

Dale Mongomery is one of Canada's most revered stock dog handlers, teaching stockmanship across Saskatchewan and around North America. In so doing, he has shown livestock producers the principles of low-stress handling for cattle and sheep.

Born and raised on a cattle operation near Golden Prairie, the family later moved to a feedlot north of Maple Creek and that's where dale attended high school. His passion was animals and he competed in many rodeo events. Dale and his brother Jim were Canadian Champion Team Ropers.

In the late 80s as Dale's career in rodeo was winding down, his life was changed by a young border collie named Huck. When the renegade pup was obtained from a friend, Dale recognized Huck's amazing way with stock and this is what drew Dale into a life of dog training, stock dog competitions and breeding border collies.

In 1989, Canadian Western Agribition in Regina hired Dale to do a stock dog demonstration during the rodeo. The crowd loved it and stock dog competitions became a mainstay at Agribition. From there, the event spread to other Canadian locations.

Dale and his dogs have a long list of wins to their credit at events such Agribition and the Calgary Stampede. Dale's dog Gyp holds the Agribition record at an amazing 47 seconds.

For several years, Dale and his wife Dawn grazed more than 1,000 sheep as part of governmental contracts to control a noxious weed called leafy spurge as well as other bush encroachments. This was a perfect setting for on-the-job training of stock dogs.

Dale has also been hired to have his dogs move cattle and sheep in many western movies shot in both Saskatchewan and Alberta. He has sold dogs as far away as Austria and Japan.

Dale always had a gift for working with animals and his efforts have contributed to the adoption of more efficient livestock handling techniques and beliefs.
