Guarding Cows– 16 Weeks of Age
Updated: Nov 1, 2020
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.
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.
