Guarding Cows– 16 Weeks of Age
Updated: Feb 5
The pups watch these bossy cows from a safe distance!
For several weeks now, the pups have been in charge of the big field in addition to being moved among the other fields they have been exposed to in the past. They have been mentored by several older Maremmas along the way, each with his/her differing style of guarding and tolerance of puppy foolishness.
Our Benson Ranch Cameo mentors the pups along with the five month old Red Blush male pup.
Introducing them to the cows adds quite a bit of challenge to their lives because they learn they must be mindful around the cows – these cows are not above using their heads to teach the pups to keep a respectful distance.
