Only as much as his instincts allowed. He didn't have any other training.

an old dog trainer told me that if he had a dollar for every heeler owner that told him that "if they could just find a trainer that could train their dog he would be great", he wouldn't need to train dogs anymore he could just retire. Lol

I'm looking now into shipping this pup out To be trained on cattle once he's imprinted with us. I don't want a dog that stays out in a kennel only to be used on cows when needed.

First thing that popped into my mind when I saw him was " does he bite...?"
Glad you got out safe.
