Ava surely loves her pigs. And I mean luuuurves them.
She trots up to the gate to see what they’re up to.
And they come up to greet her.
A little nuzzle…
and a little kiss.
Anybody have good resources to recommend for training GSD’s for herding? She has the desire, but doesn’t know what to do and usually just chases things willy-nilly in a most unhelpful manner. At that point Matt usually threatens to shoot her.
But the other day she followed Matt into the cattle pen, when some of the calves had broken in with the cows and needed sorted back out. Ava herded the bull and cows away from the calves and, just as importantly, stopped when Matt called her off. So now he’s thinking there’s hope for her as a herding dog and wants to work on training her. Email or leave a comment if you have suggestions. Thanks!
