Started Maremma Dogs

Age of placement:   My pups are sold as adolescent dogs only. They will be at least four months old and have had PennHIP testing completed. Giving my puppies significant training prior to them leaving me increases their likelihood of success and the satisfaction of their new owners. This helps to keep my puppies safe in their new lives.


Benson Ranch is now a Maremma LGD training facility, so as well as raising livestock and producing outstanding Maremma puppies we offer training on a per month basis. Buyers of my pups have the option of leaving them here with me in training beyond the minimum age at which they can leave. I think placing started pups at five to eight months of age is ideal.

This is seven month old Armani confidently at work. Notice how trusting the sheep are of him. That's a big complement for a young dog!
